Audit of energy saving opportunities to comply with the requirements of The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme, ESOS. 

How JRP added value

Annual energy savings of 3,130 MWh were identified at the audited sites.  When scaled up to represent the whole BMI Healthcare estate the identified annual savings potential was 17,560 MWh or 12.5% of the total energy consumption, which is equivalent to £1.05 million per year.  The investment required to achieve these savings had an average payback of 2.2 years.

“JRP’s ESOS Assessment is a very comprehensive piece of work… we are pleased that we chose JRP Solutions to do our ESOS Assessment”, said a spokesperson from BMI Healthcare.

How JRP helped BMI Healthcare

Following a competitive tender JRP Solutions was selected to take responsibility for ensuring that BMI Healthcare was fully ESOS compliant before the 5 December 2015 deadline.

BMI Healthcare is the UK’s largest private hospital provider.  It has over sixty hospitals and treatment centres across the UK and four de-contamination facilities.  It handles over 275,000 in-patient and 1,500,000 out-patient visits each year.

Audits were carried out on six hospitals of different ages and sizes plus one of the de-contamination facilities, which together represented 94% of the organisation’s energy consumption. 

The significant energy users were:

  • Space heating

  • Air Conditioning

  • Lighting

Energy saving opportunities identified by JRP Solutions included:

  • Introducing improved energy monitoring and targeting systems with responsibility for performance being devolved to the sites themselves

  • Installing additional lighting controls such as occupancy detection in toilets and daylight sensors in areas with high levels of natural light

  • Introducing a motor replacement policy so that when motors fail they are replaced with energy efficient models instead of being re-wound it or replaced with a like-for-like unit

  • Fitting variable speed drives to large fan and pump motors

  • Installing solar PV arrays on south-facing roofs

At the audited sites annual energy savings of 3,130 MWh were identified.  When scaled up to represent the whole BMI Healthcare estate the identified annual savings potential was 17,560 MWh or 12.5% of the total energy consumption, which is equivalent to £1.05 million per year.
