Quitting Coal – Centrica set to replace one of final NHS coal fired boilers
Centrica Business Solutions is set to deliver a programme of energy efficiency measures for Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation trust which will see one of the two final coal boilers across the NHS estate decommissioned.
The new 150kWe CHP will provide the power needs for the hospital, while upgraded pumps, controls, LED lighting and improved insulation will see carbon emissions at the Trust reduced by around 1,700 tonnes a year.
The funding has been secured from the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme, a £1 billion government initiative supporting its commitment to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050*.
Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Director of Estates and Facilities Jug Johal said: “As a Trust, we have made a commitment to increasing sustainability by making better use of our existing buildings and reducing our running costs, in line with the national Greener NHS strategy** which is committed to taking the carbon footprint of the NHS to net zero by 2045.
