AB combined heat & power (CHP) systems enable hospitals to reduce energy costs, improve environmental performance and increase energy reliability. Resources saved are often redirected to improve patient care.
Many hospital buildings have relatively high energy loads for heating, hot water and sterilization; operate around-the-clock, seven days a week; need guaranteed continuous power for mission critical functions from operating theatres downwards. The criteria that optimize the economic case for chp are high, reasonably steady energy loads and continuous facility operation for as many hours of the week or year as possible. Add the capability of AB solutions to also act as a standby power provider and the softer, green and PR advantages of maximizing fuel resource use and minimizing carbon emissions and the cogeneration offer is ideal for the healthcare sector
