How can a better approach to energy management help NHS organisations to deliver the Ten Point Efficiency Plan?
Bottom lines in NHS Trusts take a direct hit every time energy costs rise, forcing organisations to direct an already-stretched budget away from front line service delivery. Many choose to fix their energy prices annually, but taking a different approach to procurement can provide greater budget certainty and create opportunities to better control energy price inflation. Looking afresh at energy consumption can also unearth real optimisation opportunities and the chance to control overall costs.
