2015 has proved to have been an extremely busy year for the CEF.

Financial close has been reached on projects at York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (Scarborough and Bridlington Hospitals), Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust (John Radcliffe and Churchill Hospitals), Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust, NHS Tayside, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust, The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust and NHS Grampian. This means a sum of c£76M of capital is being invested in the NHS which in course will produce savings of at least c£12.4M per annum for the next 15 years, 25 years in some cases.

Practical completion was reached on schemes involving East Cheshire NHS Trust, Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (Arrowe Park and Clatterbridge Hospitals), Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (Rampton Secure Hospital), North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust, Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (Queen’s Medical Centre) and Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust (Darent Valley Hospital). A capital sum of c£25M has therefore been invested on energy infrastructure and savings of c£6.9M are now being delivered.

Since it’s inception the CEF has now secured capital investment of c£134M into the NHS which will produce savings of at least £28M per annum and carbon savings of 120,000 tonnes per annum.

These figures will all increase over the course of the next 12 months with a tranche of schemes already in procurement.
