Just What the Doctor Ordered
Is providing affordable care becoming more difficult as utility costs continue to rise? Whether in a skilled nursing, assisted-living, long-term care facility or regional hospital, energy costs can soar due to the steady thermal loads typically required for domestic water heating, comfort heating and cooling, on-site laundry and food service functions.
Better Energy, Better Health
Scalable on-site cogeneration systems can reduce energy costs by up to 50% in healthcare facilities. Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems create heat and electricity from one source in an environmentally sustainable way.
This makes CHP systems ideal for hospitals and skilled nursing facilities, which are often large, 24/7 operations that have bulky thermal and electric requirements. Ideal applications include small and large hospitals, medical office buildings and nursing facilities serving at least 50 residents.
How Dalkia Aegis Can Help
Providing comfort by heating or cooling rooms efficiently, Dalkia Aegis CHP systems deliver reliable energy with independence from the grid. Dalkia Aegis has successfully designed and installed CHP systems in hundreds of healthcare facilities throughout the U.S.
Dalkia Aegis CHP systems provide operational efficiency of 85%, using nearly all natural gas input to produce heat and electricity, versus the low efficiency of conventional central power plants, which are only 35% efficient on average.
Dalkia Aegis will provide an in-depth energy analysis and comprehensive plan for the CHP system’s integration with your existing building infrastructure.
