Energy efficiency in hospitals

Information

Date & time: 
Fri, November 7, 2008 - 14:00
Duration / timezone: 

1 hour / Central European Time

Moderators: 

Marcel Didden & Rob Van Heur (Laborelec)

Content: 

Hospitals represent 6% of the total energy consumption in the utility buildings sector. The webinar analyses the use of energy, benchmark methodologies and the potential energy savings in the hospital sector, on the basis of theory and practical case studies.

1) Is there experience using heat pumps for heating and or heat recovering?
2) Cooling needs share in hot climates is certainly higher than 5%. Could absorption chillers make more economic sense in hot climates? Do you have any rough figures of investment and COP?
3) Is it possible to precise if solar energy can be used for hot tap water ? In France we have pn with legionella...
4) Do you have any experience of fuel cell systems being used for CHP/cogeneration?
5) Can heat entry through windows can be reduced by use of sun films or any other type of glass?
6) Could you please talk a bit about the technological and market prospects for absorption chillers?
7) Can LED lights help to rerduce the energy consumption?
8) In your analyse of lighting efficiency you have consider only the energy consumption by traditional and electronic balance? Have you perhaps consider the modern methods of light control, which are possible for example with elements of home automation?
9) In this part of world with 90% cooling hours your suggestion please! With 90% humidity. It reaches 35 deg Celsius average, and 50 degree max.
10) Thank you for this interesting webinar. In Africa cooling system are critical consumption point in hospital how can we find energy comsumption reduction
11) Why in Belgium they do not use a recovery wheel in hospitals, however this gives you the best results on recuperation and in f.e. the Netherlands they use it ?
12) Could you please talk a bit about about the technological and market prospects for absorption chillers?
13) Comment FYI : a program in North Spain for more than 10 hospitals show how the use of solar panels for hot tap water production makes a lot of economic sense. Operation and maintenance of solar support system can be assured by the technical staff of the hospital, which is an important point.
14) How is about heatpump as heat recovery system?typical payback?plus and minus?
15) Comment FYI : Cogeneration in Spain is promoted as follows: all the electricity generated gets a dedicated feed-in tariff. So, there is no incentive for peak-shaving behaviour. Feed-in tariff is higher when cogen recovers as much residual heat as possible : incentive to design cogens to cover heat demand, which is quite right.
16) What are the main drivers for hospital managers for implementing EE strategies in their hospitals? What are their targets?
17) Usually how this kind of project are financed? Who are the financing sources?
18) How practical is cpv and concentration thermal heating in hospital settings?
19) You don't consider Double-effect absorption chillers according to your number of efficiency. Why?
20) in tropics heating is not a problem rather design for natural cooling. how practical is the use of uv light for sterilization of linen?
21) Absorption as a waste heat recovery system your comments please!
22) Thank you for this interesting webinar. In Africa cooling system are critical consumption point in hospital how can we find energy comsumption reduction
23) In hot climate Stored cooling system works cheaper particularly to cut down peak power requirement when TOD tariff is working
24) Any suggestion about advantages given by centralised lighting control systems (light flux regulators) and in particular about pay-back time.Thank you very much
25) legionella can be prevented with several techniques in solar thermal installations. This is a solved problem today
26) Market Trends : is there a market for ESCO’s in Hospitals sector? Are hospitals willing to outsource the energy and fluids supply?
