MSP Backs Calls for Change to Outdated Energy Systems

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has backed calls from Centrica to update outdated energy systems.

It comes as Centrica Business Solutions revealed new figures which show the NHS across Scotland could save at least £19million per year.

The data was released to mark NHS Sustainable Health and Care Week and form part of a larger report examining the potential impact of distributed energy solutions on job creation, economic growth and productivity.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“Transforming buildings to be warmer, greener and more efficient offers substantial economic, social and health benefits.

“As this research from Centrica indicates, there is a real opportunity for large energy users to improve energy performance, bring down bills and, in the case of vital frontline services like our NHS, ensure budgets can be spent on frontline services rather than energy costs.”

Jorge Pikunic, Managing Director at Centrica Business Solutions, said:

“Our NHS is an incredible healthcare system and a source of national pride – but it’s also under intense pressure to reduce costs while delivering enhanced services. Energy has a huge role to play in that."
