Providing an environment that caters to patient well-being and comfort and running general medical services, places unique demands on energy usage for hospitals and healthcare facilities.
As much as 30% of the energy consumed in hospitals is used unnecessarily. Considering energy is approximately 50% of a health care facility manager's budget, hospitals can dramatically reduce their operating costs by using energy more efficiently.
ABB Cylon product range offers flexibility in strategy changes and maximized control utilization ideally suited to the changing demands of healthcare facilities. Our Energy Management tool ensures control of energy usage and delivers alerts and alarms to the facility management team when anomalies are detected, allowing facility teams to provide consistency of service while managing energy usage and costs.
As sophisticated needs and extended uptime lead to high energy consumption of most hospitals and clinics, the healthcare sector offers an unparalleled opportunity for facility managers to optimize and increase energy savings.
Ranking 2nd behind the food-service sector, the healthcare industry exceeds typical per-building energy costs of similar building sizes by nearly a factor of 10, with an energy intensity of approximately 250 kBTU or 74 kWh per square foot, nearly three times that of a typical office building.
Whether you are targeting upgrades in an existing system or working to deliver a system-wide solution, ABB Cylon offers the services and products required to meet both the HVAC and energy saving needs of today's healthcare facilities.
