Northern Lincolnshire and Goole (NLaG) are always looking for ways to provide a world-class estate whilst delivering healthcare in a more sustainable way. With rising energy costs and a desire to achieve an ambitious 25% reduction in carbon emissions by 2016, NLaG was operating in a challenging environment with:

  • Challenging Cost Improvement Plan targets set
  • Limited access to capital funds
  • Some ageing energy-related infrastructure
  • A need to engage staff with energy and carbon reduction initiatives
  • A need for resource to address the above

To address these issues NLaG and British Gas formed a strategic partnership that would help unlock the significant benefits associated with guaranteed energy and carbon reduction through an Energy Performance Contract (EPC).
