NHSGGC Energy Team
They are just a small team of four but they have made huge savings for NHSGGC through carbon saving initiatives.
And as you might expect the ethos of the team is to use as little resource and energy as they can to achieve the biggest and most effective energy savings possible. To this end they are superbly successful.
Driven by their own energies they have identified ways to deliver estimated annual cost savings for NHSGGC of more than £170,000 through persuading staff to become more energy efficient.
Following site visits by the energy team, simple measures are being adopted across 40 sites including switching off lights and computer equipment when not in use, reducing temperatures and using air conditioning units more efficiently.
The team were delighted to have their hard work recognised and win the award but were quick to say these initiatives only work with the full support of facilities staff, managers and staff all getting on board and encouraging each other to be more eco aware.
The energy team closely monitor performance and follow up with site managers to ensure attention is channelled in the right areas for maximum carbon reduction and cost savings.
