  • The right medicine: reducing cost and carbon in the NHS Recorded: May 16 2019 59 mins
    Lorcan Anglin, Inenco Mark Winn, Inenco
    Speakers:
    Lorcan Anglin, Head of Solutions at Inenco
    Mark Winn, Lead Consultant, Public Sector at Inenco

    How can a better approach to energy management help NHS organisations to deliver the Ten Point Efficiency Plan?

    Bottom lines in NHS Trusts take a direct hit every time energy costs rise, forcing organisations to direct an already-stretched budget away from front line service delivery. Many choose to fix their energy prices annually, but taking a different approach to procurement can provide greater budget certainty and create opportunities to better control energy price inflation. Looking afresh at energy consumption can also unearth real optimization opportunities and the chance to control overall costs.

    Using real life case studies and practical advice, this webinar will focus on delivering both better energy procurement and an holistic approach to energy optimisation. Our industry experts will address:

    1.How differing approaches to procurement strategies can achieve better outcomes and reduce the risk of annual price variations and provide greater budget certainty
    2.Taking a shorter-term focus on invoice validation to remove the need for retrospective review and recovery, keeping much needed resources available for vital frontline services within financial year
    3.What opportunities exist to review technology and processes that will optimise energy consumption to both reduce cost and help achieve 2020 carbon reduction targets
    4.Five essential steps for identifying saving opportunities, prioritising them and developing investment cases based on short pay-back periods.
  • Capitalising from clean energy: finding the right on-site solution Recorded: Mar 19 2019 59 mins
    Stuart Reid, Managing Director (Projects), Mark Tarry, Chief Financial Officer
    On site energy centres can provide long-term cost and carbon savings, sheltering large energy users from rising energy costs and boosting sustainability through low carbon generation. Industrial sites and commercial property infrastructure are playing an increasing role in the decentralised energy system but technology is rapidly evolving, and no one solution suits all users. Businesses face a myriad of choices, from on-site heat and power generation and waste heat recovery to peaking plant to provide export services.

    In this webinar, Stuart Reid and Mark Tarry from AMP Clean Energy will explain how businesses can still benefit from the transition to decentralised energy, despite a changing subsidy environment.

    The webinar will consider what options are available to businesses looking to explore a switch to on-site generation, from choosing the best low carbon technology for your site’s needs to overcoming financial obstacles to secure investment.

    You’ll also hear real-life examples of how the installation of an on-site peaking plant is helping a commercial property developer attract new tenants and how award-winning British grower Villa Nursery’s CHP plant has reduced their gas spend by £200,000 per annum, and the rewards they have reaped since its installation in 2017.

    About AMP Clean Energy
