“It was very simple to use ESG’s Brite Check© service and the output has provided us with the assurance that solar PV is our best renewable investment option at Frimley Park Hospital. A hassle-free process that, particularly if there is a need to assess multiple buildings, quickly orders project options in order of best return and fit to strategy.”
Richard Hilson, Head of Sustainability, Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust
Frimley Park Hospital is part of the Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust serving patients in Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire. The emergency department help 120,000 people each year. The hospital provides half a million outpatient appointments and over 5,000 babies are born in its maternity department annually. ESG was approached by the Trust to identify potential opportunities to install renewable energy technologies.
Brite Check© comprehensively modelled the capital investment and potential energy, cost and carbon savings of each technology. All this was achieved using easily obtained energy and building data without using costly or time-consuming on-site surveys.
The findings are shown in two formats; a detailed technical appendix and a summarised executive report. These showed that solar (PV) was the best option and if they installed a large roof mounted solar panel they would save £10,000 a year.
