RE:FIT London case studies
Epsom & St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust
Epsom & St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust is a large acute Trust in England which operates from two acute hospitals. The Trust are in the process of implementing an Energy Performance Contract through RE:FIT and have identified guaranteed energy savings of £1 million per year.
London Borough of Hounslow
The London Borough of Hounslow is the first organisation to utilise the fast track RE:FIT schools programme, so far energy conservation measures have been installed across 11 schools, saving over £150,000 off their energy bills.
London Borough of Enfield
The London Borough of Enfield has a strong track record in leading carbon reduction and innovative energy projects through its Sustainable Enfield programme. To date, the Council has reduced its own carbon footprint by 45 per cent.
London Fire Brigade
The London Fire Brigade (LFB) was one of the organisations that took part in the original RE:FIT pilot. Ten fire stations were successfully retrofitted with energy conservation measures during the pilot stage and, as a result, the LFB decided to apply RE:FIT to a further 48 fire stations.
London Borough of Ealing
London Borough of Ealing was one of the first boroughs to engage with RE:FIT London energy retrofit programme, using the programme as a part of its carbon management plan to drive down energy usage and carbon emissions.
Newham University Trust
Newham University Hospital is a 379 bed hospital in East London. Now a part of Barts NHS Trust, the hospital invested in a range of energy and environmental improvements, including two phased installations under the RE:FIT Framework, to help reduce their carbon emissions and enhance the healing environment for their patients through better air quality.
London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)
LSE is the world’s leading centre for social sciences. It has developed a carbon management plan that will ensure a carbon reduction of 54 per cent by 2020 against 2005 levels, and RE:FIT is a key enabler in working towards this target.
Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Tom Parrott, Energy Manager at Kew, reveals how the two phases of Kew's RE:FIT project are helping to reduce carbon emissions, improve working environments and contribute to positive behavioural change across the two sites.
With the support of the RE:FIT Programme Delivery Unit, RBG Kew has completed two phases of works through the RE:FIT framework.
London Borough of Sutton (LBS)
LBS used the RE:FIT programme to support its carbon management plan, by delivering energy efficiency across the boroughs’ buildings, and driving down both energy consumption and carbon emissions.
Western International Market (WIM), London Borough of Hounslow
Hounslow Council, supported by the Mayor of London’s RE:FIT programme, has installed the largest roof-mounted solar PV array by a UK local authority, the first to incorporate battery storage.
London Metropolitan University (LMU)
LMU used the RE:FIT programme as a part of its overall carbon reduction planning, delivering a range of energy efficiency measures across its buildings portfolio. With the support of the RE:FIT team, LMU procured a specialist service provider to design and install a range of energy performance improvement installations.
