National Health Service

Supporting the pathway to net zero carbon emissions.

Improving energy efficiency in NHS health and social care services

The priority for NHS organisations is to provide health and high quality care for all, now and for future generations. As consumers of high levels of energy and water, their critical operations depend on having a reliable supply. Supporting their commitment to realise the Government’s net zero goal, it is essential for NHS organisations to deliver vital services efficiently, sustainably and economically.

Health and social care services operate diverse energy estates, which include many different building types with unique consumption needs. Buildings are often in use round-the-clock with unpredictable levels of occupancy, which can make managing energy use across the entire portfolio challenging.

Implementing a good energy and sustainability management strategy can not only deliver essential savings and reduce consumption costs, but it is key to achieving the ambitions set out in the NHS Delivering a Net Zero National Health Service plan.

With our support health and social care services can boost their environmental credentials, enhance energy efficiency, mitigate the impact of growing demand and provide sustainable services.

How TEAM can help

Responsible for 4% of the nation’s carbon emissions, the NHS is committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2040, with plans to extend those targets to its Carbon Footprint Plus by 2045. These ambitious plans include the development of a green fleet, building new net zero hospitals and buildings, adapting infrastructure, and training staff to be energy conscious. Whilst their priority is to provide care, their hope is that the UK population’s health can be improved by a change in environment, helping to balance the predicted growth in demand on services.

We work in partnership with busy NHS organisations to help them meet their energy and sustainability goals. We recognise the challenges of managing and understanding large volumes of data, as well as working towards critical cost reduction and emissions targets whilst sustaining a high level of service.

Our range of products and services are designed to help health and social care organisations fulfil their energy strategies, implement energy saving projects, achieve their emissions targets and alleviate their staff administration.
