Thermal Energy Receives Purchase Order from Salisbury District Hospital in England

OTTAWA, April 11 /CNW/ - Thermal Energy International Inc. (TSX-V: TMG) (www.thermalenergy.com) ("Thermal Energy" or "the company") is pleased to announce that on April 6th, 2011 it received a purchase order for £246 thousand (approximately CDN $386 thousand) from Salisbury District Hospital Trust, a major hospital in the south west of England, to install a combined heat and power (CHP) exhaust stack condensing heat recovery system for use on its heating and hot water system. The condensing heat recovery system is expected to be installed and revenue earned over the next 20 weeks.

The purchase order was received following the successful supply and installation of a GEM® condensate return system, also from Thermal Energy, just one year earlier.

"This project will provide further energy savings to add to the energy efficiency of the CHP system to be installed concurrently and overall the carbon reduction expected from these projects will demonstrate a high commitment by the Trust to improving the environment" commented George Atkinson Head of Estates. "This is a very significant project within the UK NHS and is evidence of Thermal Energy's continued commitment to supporting the goals of the NHS in reducing their carbon footprint," said Thermal Energy's President and CEO William Crossland.

About National Health Services
NHS is the publicly funded healthcare system in Great Britain. According to its web site, the NHS is the largest single organization by employment in Europe, employing 5 per cent of the UK workforce and producing more than 18 million tonnes of CO2 per year - 3.2 per cent of carbon emissions and 25 per cent of public sector emissions in England. The NHS is the largest public sector contributor to climate change and is working vigorously to reduce its energy consumption by 80% by 2050 against a baseline use in 2000, a legal limit set by the UK Government. The NHS Sustainable Development 2011 - Delivering Transformational Change Conference and Exhibition aimed to identify the progress to date and define the challenges moving forward in creating a sustainable NHS legacy for the future. This is set within the context of the current regulatory framework and policy mandate for the UK under the groundbreaking Climate Change, Planning and Energy Acts. Taken together, these provide an action plan to secure a Low Carbon Future and reduce carbon emissions by 10 per cent below 1990 levels by 2010, 34 per cent by 2020, and 80 per cent by 2050, according to govtoday.co.uk, an online resource for the public sector in the UK.
