Supporting Bupa UK's commitment to minimise environmental impact

We are currently working with Bupa UK as the healthcare leader focuses on reducing absolute carbon emissions by 20 per cent by the end of this year.

Bupa UK is investing £50 million to retrofit energy efficient and renewable technologies into its property portfolio worldwide, to reduce carbon emissions and its environmental impact. Collaborating with Bupa UK to supply bespoke systems made up of Combined Heat and Power (CHP) modules and condensing boilers, so far we have helped Bupa UK complete 200 installations in 150 locations throughout the UK.

Brita Sread, Property Director at Bupa UK, said: “We have over 350 properties in the UK, with care homes representing 85 per cent of our energy consumption, so we wanted to make a concerted effort to ensure our existing building stock is performing as energy efficiently as possible.

“Although utilising energy efficient and renewable technologies is standard practice in new build properties, we knew that reducing our energy consumption at source across our existing care homes on a mass scale would significantly minimise our environmental impact, though a number of these being of Victorian construction added to this challenge.”

Bupa UK analyse the Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) data across all utilities from each site to determine how each care home consumes energy, and then integrates the necessary technologies to help the care home operate to a more sustainable level. In addition to the CHP modules and condensing boilers supplied by ourselves, Bupa UK also utilises renewable technologies including solar PV, ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps to further enhance performance.
