10.45 - 11.15 The game changer in medical waste management

Sterilwave is the most innovative on-site medical waste treatment service seen by the NHS in two decades. Our modern waste process intelligently grinds and microwaves the waste into a sterile RDF “flock” that is completely safe to handle and is used as a fuel in Waste to Energy plants. The Sterilwave process has zero emissions, reduces on-site vehicle movements, improves local air quality whilst reducing the NHS carbon footprint and improving sustainability and compliance.”

15.30 - 16.00 Interest-free finance for investment in energy efficiency

The NHS estate is highly energy intensive and costs over £8 billion a year to run. Both the Carter Report and Naylor Review highlighted the importance of investing in the NHS estate to continue to deliver a high-quality healthcare service. With improved energy efficiency notably identified as an area that can reduce wasted energy and save the NHS millions of pounds.

Recent research estimates over £130m is lost on wasted energy due to inefficiencies in the healthcare sector each year, this highlights the vast opportunities available for the NHS to achieve financial and carbon savings through investment in energy efficiency.

Salix Finance provides NHS Trusts and Foundations Trusts with 100% interest-free government funded loans to support the installation of energy efficient technologies. Since 2007, Salix has provided £71 million for 589 projects across 63 Trusts and Foundation Trusts, leading to savings of over £19m per year and £290m over the lifetime of the projects.

In this session, Salix Finance will discuss opportunities for NHS Trusts and Foundation Trusts to drive down their energy costs by implementing new energy efficient technologies. Salix will include examples of NHS clients’ projects through Project Knowledge Slides containing best practice and lessons learned on a range of technology types which include; LED lighting, combined heat and power and heat recovery technologies. Salix will also provide tips from client’s experiences on how to gain internal approval for energy efficiency capital projects.

10.00 - 10.30 Creating Vibrant Estates through Energy & Operational Efficiencies

With over 26 million meters squared of floorspace spread across 1,200 sites nationwide, the NHS needs to ensure that its facilities thrive just as well as the occupants. Complexity of buildings requires innovative solutions to manage the energy and operational needs.

Enlighted, a Siemens company, uses a dense sensory grid… cleverly incorporated in lighting fixtures…to collect, process, communicate, and analyse rich streams of data to optimise the health and efficiency of buildings. The system provides actionable insights of facility usage while giving occupants a game changing Real Time Location Services system.

Even better than this, the huge energy savings that Enlighted produces means that facilities can become connected for free, by using the energy savings as the trojan horse for deployment. Come and learn how this technology is currently being developed and applied, the challenges, along with predictions for the future.
