The NHS is one of the UK’s most energy intensive organisations, spending more than GB£750 million on energy costs each year. GIB and DLL are working with NHS Trusts to improve energy efficiency and save money. GIB and DLL committed GB£50 million of funding for NHS energy efficiency measures, with both parties investing GB£25 million.

The first project funded by the alliance will be at Queen’s Medical Centre, part of Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, where GB£7.5 million is being invested to finance the installation of a suite of energy production and reduction measures. The project has been developed under the Carbon and Energy Fund (CEF) framework and it will be delivered by the energy services company, Interserve. As with previous NHS energy efficiency projects, the Trusts and Health Boards that will benefit from the new funding won’t need to find the capital upfront. The money saved by reducing their energy bills more than covers the cost of the repayments.

GIB invested GB£64 million into a new energy from waste plant in Derby. The project is being developed by Derby City and Derbyshire County Councils, alongside sponsors Interserve plc and Shanks Group plc. GIB will provide long-term loan financing alongside Germany’s Bayerische Landesbank and Japan’s Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, with each bank providing a third of the loan funding, totalling up to GB£195 million.

The new facility in south Derby will process waste from households in Derby and Derbyshire. It will see an increase in the amount of waste that is recycled with the remaining treatable waste converted into energy using an innovative gasification technology. The project will generate enough electricity to power 14,000 homes. The project also involves running all Derby and Derbyshire’s household waste recycling centres. Following a 32 month construction period, the project will operate for 25 years.

The project will recycle over 35,000 tonnes of materials per year and divert over 170kt/year of waste from landfill.

The project will see 250 people recruited to work on construction of the new facility and 34 new permanent roles to operate it. The gasification plant will be supplied by Energos, a UK-based company supplying advanced gasification plants around Europe.

The project will be the first long term, project financed, municipal gasification plant in the UK. This is important in demonstrating the investment potential of this type of technology.

CEFC will provide up to AU$50 million in senior debt finance for
development of two Western Australian waste-to-gas facilities by New Energy Corporation. This is Western Australia’s first municipal waste-to-gas project. The facilities will recover municipal, industrial and commercial waste streams and sell the generated power (estimated as 70% renewable) most likely to local large energy users (e.g. local water or port authorities).

CEFC financing will be for about one quarter of the total project cost and will be supplemented by a similar level of financing from another bank, with the balance of half the project cost funded through equity. No concessionality applies. The CEFC’s finance for New Energy will assist in developing what is the first municipal waste-toenergy gasification project within Australia, and help
facilitate access to private sector funding for other waste-to-energy facilities in the future.

CEFC provided a AU$20 million debt funding facility to assist in the final stage of the development and commercialisation of wave power technology, known as the CETO technology (CETO 6) in Perth. The CEFC, in conjunction with Carnegie, developed a new hybrid corporate loan/project finance financing structure tailored for this transaction and the CETO technology development. The new financing model is designed to lower the financing risks. The loan is structured to fund the development of a specific project but with security over the assets of the company including any cash refunds the company will receive under the R&D tax incentive. While technically a corporate loan, this has a high level of structural controls such as those usually found in project finance transactions. This financing structure can have wider application for other emerging energy technology projects, and be used by other financers to accelerate development of the renewable energy industry in Australia.
