Healthcare facility cuts power consumption with energy optimization system

May 9, 2017

A healthcare facility on Australia's Gold Coast has been able to significantly reduce its total power consumption following the installation of an energy optimization system at its chiller plant, according to an article on the Architecture and Design website.

The energy system at Robina Hospital is on track to save enough electricity in its first 12 months to run the light towers for a year.

The system is a variable pressure curve technology that optimizes chiller plant control systems to reduce total plant energy consumption by 20 to 50 percent.

A review of the system installed at the hospital after the first four months reveals an average of 24 percent reduction in total power consumption of the chiller plant.
