Description: If there’s any industry with critical infrastructure that simply cannot suffer a power outage, it’s healthcare. Hospitals must have a reliable back-up power source in the event of a blackout or power-related emergency to protect the health and safety of their patients. Beyond the immediate impact that a power blackout can have on patients, there is a financial aspect as well. For every cancelled surgery, hospitals can lose $150 per minute of revenue, or $9,000 an hour. A power outage can result in millions of dollars in lost revenue from cancelled services, legal liability, and damaged reputations.
However, as the demand and the critical importance for stable, cost-effective energy continues to grow, the traditional power grid is becoming less reliable.
In response, forward-looking healthcare institutions are taking matters into their own hands – building their own distributed energy systems (DES). Using Siemens technology, hospitals and other healthcare facilities around the world are able to generate electricity and heat through gas-fired CHP systems, and to create local power generation units called microgrids that combine power generation with power storage and efficient power distribution.
Early adopters of this approach are seeing operational cost reductions of between 8% and 28% and a return on investment of between 3-7 years. These gains are the result of the ability to avoid costly disruptions triggered by sudden power loss, more efficient management of energy consumption, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
