The AIRAH Awards 2022 finalists have now been announced, and Conserve It is proud to have been named a finalist in three categories.
The first category that Conserve It is a finalist for is Excellence in Sustainability for Optimal scheduling of air conditioning systems with renewable energy resource and thermal storage for our work at Echuca Regional Hospital.
About the project
The built environment is embracing sustainability by incorporating high levels of distributed energy resources (DER) in its operations.
Echuca Hospital is a pioneer in DER implementation, using diverse energy sources and storage systems in its facility. Benefits delivered by selecting the operational strategy for any given day on radiation and building-load forecast information, energy available in storage and tariff. Optimal operation of the thermal-electrical energy system with storage is a complex mathematical problem. But Conserve It, CSIRO, and Echuca Regional Health has developed a novel approach for management of DER in buildings to improve sustainability in operations.
