The medical professionals, patients and visitor in hospitals, clinics, retirement homes and other healthcare facilities need to have the best possible environment in order for the best possible care to be delivered. At the same time, tight control over expenditure is a must.
A secure supply of energy is vital to every healthcare facility. The medical professionals need to have a guaranteed energy supply in order to deliver high quality patient care. At the same time facilities managers in the healthcare sector need to consider patient comfort, energy consumption and compliance with increasingly strict environmental regulations.
A secure, guaranteed supply of energy to meet the many and varied demands of a healthcare facility requires significant expertise in energy management. Through a complete review of existing energy infrastructure Veolia can put in place a specific plan to manage, maintain and upgrade energy systems. Combined with constant monitoring either on-site or through our energy monitoring centres we keep energy equipment operating at peak efficiency and deliver the secure energy supply required.
As a result of a detailed energy audit conducted with our customers Veolia draws up an improvement plan to reduce energy consumption. This includes upgrades to energy facilities and planned maintenance to deliver the best possible energy consumption.
Veolia’s experts can also provide regular reports to energy users highlighting opportunities to save energy and reduce energy costs.
