Calibrated performance model created for hospital building

September 19, 2017

To help Barts Health NHS Trust assess proposed energy-conservation measures for part of the Royal London Hospital, enhanced energy modelling and BMS data analysis was done, according to an article on the Modern Building Services website.

The program for the Alex Wing of the dental teaching hospital was created to take advantage of the existing BMS and extensive sub-metering infrastructure.

Using a combination of building data and advanced computer modelling, a virtual benchmark of the building was created that comfortably meets the calibration thresholds for ASHRAE Guidance 14.

Energy-conservation measures that have been identified show a 22.5% reduction in gas energy demand and a 30% reduction in electricity energy demand are possible. Those savings would amount to a 28% reduction in energy spend.
