The University of Coimbra Hospital (HUC) in Portugal has deployed an energy management system, developed by Portuguese technology company ISA Intelligent Sensing Anywhere, to monitor and control electricity consumption

The health centre leverages the system, featuring monitoring equipment and electricity management software, to access information related to the quality of the power supply and analyse energy data remotely.

"The project is anticipated to save around 15% to 20% of the hospital’s electricity costs."

HUC electric engineer Isabel Daniel said the system allows staff to know the state of the electricity grid, where the consumption is higher and where improvements can be made.

ISA can even add services such as energy auditing, certification and management to the system, thereby enabling the entire energy process to be managed in a more complete form.

As part of the project, which is in its initial stage, HUC has installed the system for monitoring the electric consumption of the hospital’s central block.

Using the system, the health centre has effectively reduced costs, achieved control over consumption and energetic security, and evaluated upcoming investments in eco-efficient measures and technologies.

The project is anticipated to save around 15% to 20% of the hospital’s electricity costs.

In order to advance these projects, ISA can apply for the Energy Efficiency Fund (EEF), which may offer support without requiring financial effort from the health unit’s side.
