Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust

We were awarded preferred bidder after the Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust in conjunction with the Carbon Energy Fund tendered for an Innovation Partner to work with them as a Geothermal heat provider.

The hospital has a heat requirement of approximately 30GWhrs per annum which is expected to be fully served by a geothermal plant and the project team are currently working with the hospital and existing framework providers on the best approach to achieve this. As Innovation Partner, we will carry out a full assessment of the heat potential of the subsurface leading through to plant and well design, applications for planning consents and securing of necessary permits for operation.

It is expected that, subject to a successful appraisal program, that heat might be available to the hospital as soon as end-2026. The project team and the Trust are currently reviewing the potential for grant applications to the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme and/or the Green Heat Network Fund which may follow in late 2023 or 2024.
