Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Kings Lynn, Norfolk

Our first public sector turbine generating green energy for the NHS at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kings Lynn as part of a landmark partnership. Just what the doctor ordered!

It was the first time we installed a windmill at a public sector location and the wind-generated green electricity it produces is fed directly to the hospital, reducing its carbon footprint and annual electricity bill.

It’s another great example of our business energy partnerships: a 21st century solution to making energy in Britain, allowing QEH to make 100% green energy on site.
