Energy Supply to the HSE and funded organisations

The National Health Sustainabiliy Office, in conjunction with HBS Procurement and the Office of Government Procurement, recently completed a number of competitions for the supply of Energy to the HSE and funded organisations. Each energy type will now be supplied by a single supplier which will allow for economy of scale and better capacity to monitor and report on the health sector's energy use.
