Schneider Electric to help Taunton and Somerset cut energy consumption.


Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust (TSFT) is aiming to cut energy consumption by 40% and carbon emissions by 43% by teaming up with energy management company, Schneider Electric. The trust is implementing energy-saving measures such as solar panels and a combined heat and power unit at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton. The plan is for the cost of the project to be covered by its savings. Jo Cubbon, chief executive at TSFT, said: "We are excited to be leading the way in introducing energy efficiency on this scale in the NHS. We are part of the community here in Somerset and proud to be playing our part in making Somerset a truly green county."
