SavaWatt controls Fitted at Darent Valley NHS Hospital

Darent Valley Hospital is a modern hospital in Kent offering professional care, exceptional quality. It provides an extensive range of acute, mainly hospital-based services, to the people of Dartford, Gravesham, Swanley, Bexley and neighbouring districts across south east London and Kent.The hospital’s team of over 2000 professional and friendly staff provide care for patients across a full range of day-patient, in-patient and out-patient care.

The hospital opened in September 2000, has approximately 463 inpatient beds, serves a growing population of around 340,000 and specialties that include day-care surgery, general surgery, trauma, orthopaedics, cardiology, maternity and general medicine.

The NHS represents 3% of total UK carbon emissions with an annual energy bill of over £500m. This contributes to the largest capital spend programme in Europe. The Government will inevitably require significant energy savings.

SavaControls are being used by many NHS Trusts to help managing their emissions, and meet regulation like the Carbon Reduction Commitment and the Energy Performance in Buildings directive. Due to the vast number of varying application possible inside hospitals and associated buildings, many of our installations are carried out in stages which can be tailored to meet budgets constraints.


All SavaWatt Controls installations are carried out by our own team of engineers who are flexible in working arrangements to meet requirements.


To fully capture the varying requirements, a free site survey is carried out. Once the survey is complete a quote will be prepared which will show running costs and savings achievable along with CO2 savings.
