FINANCE: Hertfordshire-based Lister Hospital has changed the way it buys its energy from the National Grid in a move which could substantially cut its energy bills.
The hospital, run by East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust, has joined a National Grid scheme by teaming up with energy demand management company KiWi Power.
At certain designated peak times, the hospital will not use energy from the National Grid and instead use its own standby generator.
The hospital is bidding to net as much as a £100,000-a-year by participating in the scheme.
As well as being paid by the National Grid to be in the scheme, the hospital will also sell energy generated from its combined heat and power facility to the grid.
