BOULDER -- Energy management revenue for health care markets is expected to reach $2.2 billion by 2024, according to a new report from Navigant Research.
Due to an increase in global policies promoting energy efficiency and skyrocketing health care costs, governments and organizations are looking at adopting new technologies to monitor and control energy use in health care spaces, the report said.
“The average hospital uses 2.5 times the energy of other commercial buildings,” said Casey Talon, Navigant senior research analyst. “And while 24/7 operation for some health care spaces is critical, EMS’s have shown success in scaling back non-critical operations and generating savings.”
The report, Energy Management for Healthcare Markets, looks at the current state of the global market for health care EMS’s and technologies and summarizes the market drivers and barriers for adopting measures to curb health care energy costs.
An executive summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.
