The Hospital Energy Project

The Hospital Energy Project is an ambitious, innovative engineering scheme

The project will:

  • replace the outdated energy and heating systems at the John Radcliffe and Churchill hospitals
  • reduce the energy bills of Oxford University Hospitals (OUH)
  • guarantee OUH energy and heat provision for at least 25 years
  • reduce OUH's reliance on the National Grid.
