Understanding the progress to carbon1

Understanding the progress to Carbon

Carbon Dioxide

1Kg CO2 = 0.273 Kg Carbon

Methane

Nitrous Oxide

Fluorinated Gases (3)

PFC, SF6, & HFC

These make up the “Basket of six” gases within the Kyoto Protocol (2005)


Direct indirect carbon

Direct/Indirect Carbon

Within the NHS there is also a growing awareness of the indirect carbon impact that healthcare can generate

Staff

Patients

Visitors

Transport

Pharmaceuticals, Food, Laundry, Waste


Climate change initiatives

Climate Change Initiatives

  • Government target

  • 80% GHG saving from 1990 to 2050

  • Consideration to accelerated programme

  • Impetus behind building regulation reviews to LZC (Low to Zero Carbon Buildings)


Raise awareness and take action

Raise awareness and take action

Direct Carbon savings

Renewable energy

Waste minimisation

Care for the environment


Low carbon initiatives

Low Carbon Initiatives

  • Minimise energy needs of building

  • Invest in low carbon design, whole life cost approach.

  • Minimise climate impact, utilize natural resources where available


Low carbon initiatives1

Low Carbon Initiatives

  • Support building with low carbon technology

  • Invest in sustainable energy

  • Consider zero carbon near-site support


Low carbon initiatives2

Low Carbon Initiatives

  • Ensure measures are complimentary

  • Support with low energy equipment

  • Consider zero carbon near-site support


Climate change initiatives1

Climate Change Initiatives

  • DH Activities for healthcare buildings

  • BRE research

  • NEAT to BREEAM Healthcare

  • HTM 07-02 Encode, making energy work in healthcare

  • HTM 07-07 Sustainable Healthcare Buildings

  • Carbon Footprint for NHS (Stockholm Environmental Institute)

  • The Carbon Trust

  • NHS Carbon Management Programme + Design reviews

  • NHS Sustainable Development Unit

  • Carbon Reduction Strategy


Dh advice guidance and support

DH Advice, Guidance and support

  • Carbon/energy management in healthcare

  • HTM (07) Environment, series of guidance documents

  • HTM 07-01 Safe management of Healthcare Waste

  • HTM 07-02 EnCo2de – making energy work in healthcare

    • Partnership with Carbon Trust to produce Encode + NHS Carbon Management Programme + Salix energy fund + Energy Capital Fund

  • HTM 07-03 Transport Management and Car Parking

  • HTM 07-04 Water management and efficiency.

  • HTM 07-05 WEEE regulations

  • HTM 07-06 Community Pharmacy

  • HTM 07-07 Sustainable Healthcare Buildings.


Initiative evaluation

Initiative Evaluation.

No direct cost

Maintain efficiency: inspect, monitor, control

Raise awareness: campaign, support and supervise

Change practice: procurement, co-ordination, timings

Minimum cost

Improve technology: review, appraise, evaluate

Minor improvements: invest, re-invest

Planned expenditure

Low carbon opportunities: wind, solar, local initiatives

Assess, evaluate and initiate.

Use re-development schemes

Assess by carbon improvement/saving


Defra legislation and initiatives

Defra legislation and initiatives.

  • EU ETS Carbon management trading scheme

    Now moving into phase three.

  • Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC)

    Based on the electrical consumption (half hourly metered) and over 6,000 MWh per annum.

  • Energy end-use and energy services directive (ESD)

    A voluntary agreement to improve the procurement standards and energy efficiency of equipment.

    1% energy reduction per annum from 2008 to 2017

    Using public sector as exemplar bodies


Clg legislation in epbd energy performance certificate

CLG Legislation in EPBD Energy Performance Certificate

  • Key features

  • Required for all new buildings and buildings for sale or rent

    • For buildings over 10,000 m2 from 6th April 2008

    • For buildings over 2,500 m2 from 1st July 2008

    • For all buildings from 1st October

  • Indicates predicted energy performance (In terms of Carbon).

  • An accredited process,

Other considerations:

EPBD2 currently being considered by EU parliament and UK Gov’t.


Display energy certificate

Display Energy Certificate

  • Key features

  • Based on actual consumption for buildings over 1,000 m2.

  • Indicating a specific building type

  • Shows performance assessed against an appropriate benchmark

  • Shows historical progression to current performance value

  • Introduction by October 2008 (transitional arrangement available for site based DECs)

  • An accredited process

  • Transitional Arrangement

  • Based on actual consumption for sites with buildings over 1,000m2.

  • Energy details as submitted to ERIC

  • Shows performance assessed against an appropriate benchmark

  • Site benchmark generated from ERIC data

  • Introduction by 1st October 2008

  • An accredited process


Energy efficiency sustainability capital fund

Energy Efficiency/Sustainability Capital Fund

  • A capital fund made available from 1st January 2007 until 31st March 2009 Now fully subscribed.

  • On completion set to save around 130,000 tonnes CO2

    and nearly £16 million revenue per annum

  • Schemes include :

  • CHP, Boiler Efficiency, Renewable energy, Insulation

  • BMS controls, Inverter drives, Lighting
