Energy Controls

By: Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust

Option 2 (the preferred option) – engage external resources to identify and target specific buildings and infrastructure energy consumption reduction opportunities, to scope and specify the engineering changes and to procure the individual projects to deliver the energy consumption reductions. There are three distinct resources proposed in this business case:

• The procurement of consultant resources to identify, quantify, scope and specify building controls and services re-engineering to effect a reduction in energy consumption,

• The earmarking of funds to implement individual or group projects as identified by the consultant and in-house team to reduce energy consumption (subject to the respective justification).

• Two support requirements: The sum of £18,300 to purchase a number of measuring and data logging instruments for energy data and information acquisition (a schedule of proposed instruments is at Appendix 4). The sum of £9,390 (excluding disbursements which should be funded by the Estates Department) to fund specific training for key staff (a schedule of the proposed courses is at Appendix 5).

A proposed scope of work for the consultant services is at Appendix 6 and an overview programme for these works is at incorporated in the financial programme. The financial programme forms the basis of the action plan however the programme will be configured according to the degree of difficulty/nature and extent of underlying problems that are encountered in each of the buildings. Subject to any maintenance/works agreement windows requiring user consent, the plan will be executed to achieve the maximum energy consumption reductions in the shortest time (i.e. take the “quick wins” first).
