Healthcare industry today faces high energy cost challanges that continue to rise, creating many difficulties to manage the facility’s operating budget. Hospitals and clinics have high energy demands due to 24×7 operations, HVAC, lighting, medical imaging equipment, and special requirements for clean air and disease control. Acute and extended care facilities must manage energy consumption to achieve optimal patient care, comfort and safety as efficiently as possible. Hence, there is a serious need for taking new and creative steps that put these rising energy costs in check, both for regulatory compliance and sustainable business goals.

Kavish Eco Energy Solutions, an emerging firm in the field of energy management, provides total cost effective solutions for all energy-related services to consumers through adoption of:-

  • Energy conservation techniques
  • Efficient technologies
  • Renewable energy sources

With a team comprising a mechanical engineer, IGBC AP architect and building industry professionals, Kavish Energy helps one access their building project’s greatest potential. The firm identifies opportunities to improve the built environment, operations and occupant behaviour.

By executing each project with thorough energy analysis and assessment, Kavish Energy helps consumers to optimise their consumption and reduce the excess energy usage.

As per a study, lighting contributes 18-25 per cent of total electrical consumption in hospitals. The flagship service of Kavish Energy – Illumination Analysis and design helps healthcare industry to choose the appropriate lighting for given location as per standards thereby saving cost on lighting bills and also reducing labour, re-purchase charges and charges on installation of lights.

Not only old buildings which can be audited and assessed, even new hospitals can be designed and built as a green building infrastructure. Kavish Energy is one of the leading consultants in green building architecture, planning and designing. Their sustainable building solutions, which incorporate usage of renewable energy (wind and solar) equipment, water re-cycling; rain water harvesting and filtration combined with advanced control techniques increases the level of energy saving automation.

The concept of green building encompasses ways of designing, constructing and maintaining buildings to decrease energy, water usage and operating costs, improve the efficiency and longevity of building systems, and decrease the burden that buildings impose on the environment and public health.

With the use of sustainable energy equipments like Solar water heaters for hot water requirements, LED Lights for lighting needs, Solar power plants for in-house power generation, Motion Sensors for Automation etc , can change the energy consumption pattern of many high rise multifunctional hospitals, clinics and other healthcare institutions.
