SUP003-005 Energy Audits: NHS Scotland

Closing date: 18 August, 2014 – 10:00

The objective of this work is to undertake energy audits (and water audits at two laundry sites), to target the worst performing non-acute sites and services within the NHSS estate and determine the opportunities and associated costs in improving energy performance (and water use reduction in the case of laundries).

Contractors will be required to work with selected NHS Scotland Boards during Phase One to collate information on existing energy consumption of the sites (and water consumption in the case of the laundries), as well as any previous reports relating to audits, feasibility studies or investment grade proposals as relevant. The collated information should be reviewed to identify gaps and to develop a suitable approach for the energy audit programme (and water audits for the two laundry sites) covering each of the target sites, to be agreed with Zero Waste Scotland and Health Facilities Scotland before Phase Two commences.

Contractors will undertake audits at all target sites as part of Phase Two delivery to identify improvement opportunities. The level of detail required is more in-depth than a basic energy opportunities assessment and each potential improvement measure must provide specific information. A standard reporting template will be provided to record this information, which must also include full transparency of cost calculations and reference sources. A separate template will be provided to record water efficiency improvement measures.

 

Specific objectives include:

The collation and review of information relating to consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions at target non-acute sites;

  • The provision of audits to determine energy and carbon improvement opportunities (and water at laundry sites);
  • The provision of comprehensive site reports and project spreadsheets for each audited site.
