Efficient Lighting and LEDs

Health facilities of all sizes can benefit from efficient lighting for increased energy efficiency, reduced maintenance costs and improved environments.  Indoor and outdoor lighting can be provided by a wide range of lighting technologies, including: incandescent, fluorescent, light emitting diode (LED), and high-pressure sodium, among others.

Standards and Technical Specifications

Properly drafted specifications and the use of international standards can allow each energy system to be tailored to meet the needs of the facility while still ensuring best practice design and installation protocols are followed.

Batteries and Battery Management

Batteries are a critical component in nearly all energy systems involving an intermittent power source, including diesel generation, solar PV systems, wind, or intermittent grid; but have proven to be one of the most challenging components of an energy system to maintain.
