How Savacontrols help in the NHS
Over the years SavaWatt Controls have been used by many NHS Trusts to help reduce not only running costs but help lower their CO2 output levels.
The NHS represents 3% of total UK carbon emissions with an annual energy bill of over £500m. This contributes to the largest capital spend programme in Europe. The Government will inevitably require significant energy savings.
SavaControls are being used by many NHS Trusts to help managing their emissions, and prepare for regulation like the Carbon Reduction Commitment and the Energy Performance in Buildings directive. Due to the vast number of varying application possible inside hospitals and associated buildings, many of our installations are carried out in stages which can be tailored to meet budgets constraints.
Installation in the NHS
All SavaWatt Controls installations are carried out by our own trained team of engineers who are flexible in working arrangements to meet requirements.
To fully capture the varying requirements, a free site survey is carried out. Once the survey is complete a quote will be prepared which will show running costs and savings achievable along with CO2 savings.
