Case Study - University of Nottingham
The University of Nottingham recently completed a large-scale energy efficiency project at their Medical School. The project, which completed in January 2016, was funded through the fourth round of the Revolving Green Fund with £1,054,000 being provided as an interest-free loan.
The project involved the inefficient chilled water plant being replaced with a highly efficient Turbocor system. The project is expecting to help save approximately 852 tonnes of carbon* and over £237,740 annually from energy bills, with the lifetime financial savings expected to be over £3.4 million.

“The RGF4 funding enabled us to carry out one of the key projects in our carbon reduction programme. The interest-free loan allowed us to use the latest technology to deliver the most efficient chilled water system for the Medical School, our most energy intensive building. We are already seeing significant financial and carbon savings since the project completed and we look forward to continuing our work with Salix in the future.” – Andy Nolan, Director of Sustainability at University of Nottingham.
