Natural History Museum and Vital Energi celebrate £11m in energy savings

The Natural History Museum (NHM) has successfully achieved £11 million in energy savings and reduced carbon emissions by over 15,000 tonnes during the past decade thanks to a trigeneration scheme in partnership with Vital Energi.

Featuring a 1.9MW Combined Heat and Power engine, boilers and absorption chillers, the project serves both the NHM and the Victoria and Albert Museum and is underpinned by an energy performance contract that guarantees minimum carbon savings and financial returns.

The NHM has very specific heating and cooling needs as it is required to maintain an optimum year round temperature to maintain the integrity of its exhibits.

Vital Energi’strigeneration system is designed to compensate for the low baseload of heat required by the museums in summer by using the excess heat to provide much-needed cooling for the museums’ world-renowned collections.

Group Sales & Strategy Director for Vital Energi, Nick Gosling commented: “The installation at the Natural History Museum now has a decade-long track record and has outperformed its guaranteed carbon and financial savings in every year of operation.

“This is now a fantastic case study for long-term energy infrastructure upgrades and we are honoured to celebrate the NHM’s achievements with the rest of the industry in such an iconic venue.”
