RES-Hospitals: Towards zero carbon hospitals with renewable energy systems

RES-Hospitals aimed to reduce energy consumption of the existing stock of 15,000 hospitals in Europe and increase their energy self-sufficiency through renewable energy sources, thus supporting the EU2020 Energy targets. The sector has a relatively high energy-intensity and collectively accounts for some 5% of Europe's CO2 emissions.

The barriers to reducing energy consumption and investing in renewable energy systems (RES) in hospitals was explored through pilot projects in eight European countries. Best practice case studies and lessons from the pilots were disseminated widely to hospital decision makers through events and a ‘RES Guide for European Hospitals’.

RES-Hospitals was led by the Asti Local Health Agency in Italy and included partners and associates from seven other countries as well as a European network.
