Salix NHS Finance Programme
Salix operates a funding programme specifically targeted
at the needs of NHS Trust hospitals. The project aims to reduce Trust CO2 emissions through improvements in energy efficiency. This reduces both
energy bills and CO2 emissions.
NHS IT energy efficiency projects, such as Data Synergy's PowerMAN PC power management software, can play a significant and highly visible
role in contributing to the NHS "Net Zero" plan
to reduce its carbon emissions in line with the UK Climate Change Act.
Data Synergy and our leading industry supply partners have extensive experience
of delivering IT energy efficiency projects in the NHS. Please see our NHS case studies
for some practial examples. Please contact us to discuss how Salix Finance could be used to fund an IT energy efficiency project without upfront capital
"The NHS Carbon Reduction Strategy for England published in 2009, estimates the NHS carbon footprint
in England to be approximately 18 million tonnes of CO₂. This represents 25% of all public sector emissions
and 3.2% of total emissions in England. With the strategy target for the NHS to reduce its carbon
emissions by 10% by 2015, and the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme in place, reducing carbon emissions and capturing
cost savings has become an increasingly important issue for the NHS" - Salix / NHS & Emergency Services
