Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust


Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust provides specialist mental and community health services to a population of around 900,000 across the county of Berkshire through five community hospitals.

The Problem

The London Procurement Partnership Framework is helping NHS Trusts to deliver the highest quality services while at the same time ensuring value for money on NHS projects. Through this framework Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation were able to access the solution required to meet their energy objectives on two of their community hospital sites.

Our Solution

powerPerfector plus units were installed at two of the five community hospitals; St. Mark’s Hospital and Wokingham Community Hospital. These hospitals now have the capacity to check and change voltage from anywhere in the world, their output voltage can now be adjusted online, on an iPad or through the unit’s user interface, providing a user friendly reporting functionality.

The Results

By choosing the latest powerPerfector Plus units for the St. Mark’s Hospital and Wokingham Community Hospital sites, the energy management team have ensured maximum efficiency 24/7.

The functionality of the powerPerfector Plus Voltage Power Optimisation (VPO) unit delivers dynamic voltage optimisation in addition to the power conditioning you would expect from the standard powerPerfector.

It also delivers a ‘Buck and Boost’ capability, something no other Voltage Optimisation (VO) technology can provide.

The Overview

  • 122,836 kWh Saved
  • 66,946 CO2kg Saved
  • £12,529 Saved

“We chose to install VPO® technology on the St. Marks and Wokingham Hospital sites because they both provide a wide range of healthcare services from a variety of buildings which have many different systems and electrical equipment. So to have one piece of energy efficiency technology that would enable site wide savings in electrical consumption was an ideal solution which supports the Trusts strategic energy objectives and sustainability agenda. We hope the proven success of this case study will encourage more Trusts to investigate the opportunities VPO® has to offer the NHS.”
