IREC participates in the Green@hospitals Project to achieve energy savings in the hospitals

The Green@hospital project main purpose is the integration of ICT solutions in order to obtain important energy savings in the hospital sector. These savings will be achieved by the application of new systems/concepts of control. Those will enable to improve the energy management and to reduce the energy losses of the systems.

The project is working on 4 different hospitals all around Europe. A total of 9 systems have been analyzed and improved, including: lighting, Data centers cooling, heating and cooling of dependencies and surgery rooms ventilation.

IREC is responsible of the development and validation of the different thermal system models. Those models have allowed to define which are he energy saving achieved. But also, the models are the base for the algorithm development, which are integrated as a part of the ICT solutions.

In order to explain the different solutions sets as well as the results of the project in each of the hospitals, it has been done a video that could be also seen in the project website:
