懷伊河谷信託基金用可再生能源為縣醫院供暖

一家醫院正在改用可再生能源,開始不使用化石燃料進行加熱。

Wye Valley NHS Trust在本月初在Hereford的The County Hospital安裝了兩個地源熱泵。

信託公司正計劃安裝更多的熱泵,以在政府撥款2100萬英鎊的幫助下為該地點的其他地方供暖。

它說,轉向可再生能源將使醫院供暖產生的碳量減少約97%,每年可節省3715噸進入大氣的碳。

泵的工作原理是從地下提取熱量並通過機器來加熱在供暖系統中循環的水。

醫院還安裝了太陽能電池板,並已改用LED燈泡。

信託公司的戰略和規劃官員Alan Dawson說,將所需的47個鑽孔沉入地下200米(650英尺)深處,是一個 "重大項目"。

信託公司說,它希望成為英國最環保的醫院之一,到目前為止,它的工作已經使醫院的碳足跡每年減少約600噸,節省了約9萬英鎊的燃料費。

A hospital is being converted to renewable energy to start heating the site without using fossil fuels.

Wye Valley NHS Trust installed two ground source heat pumps at The County Hospital in Hereford at the start of the month.

The trust is planning to install more heat pumps to heat the rest of the site with the help of a £21m government grant.

It said the move to renewable energy will reduce the amount of carbon produced to heat the hospital by about 97% and save 3,715 tonnes of carbon a year going into the atmosphere.

The pumps work by extracting heat from the ground and passing it through machinery to warm the water which circulates in the heating system.

Solar panels have also been installed by the hospital, which has already switched to LED lightbulbs.

Alan Dawson, strategy and planning officer for the trust, said it had been a "major project" to sink the required 47 boreholes 200m (650ft) deep into the ground.

The trust said it hoped to become one of the greenest in the UK and its work far so had already reduced the hospital's carbon footprint by about 600 tonnes a year, saving about £90,000 in fuel bills.
