The measures include expanding the hospital's large existing photovoltaic system, installing geothermal storage systems and wind turbines, optimizing the existing technical systems and upgrading the entire control system. The retrofits and the expansion of the energy systems are scheduled to be completed by the end of December 2018. The total investment will be 23 million euros.
The modernization will also benefit the patients of Hvidovre Hospital: The Siemens building automation system Desigo TRA (Total Room Automation) will allow patients to control lighting, heating, ventilation as well as curtains and blinds directly from a bedside terminal. This ensures individualized comfort.
