Healthcare facilities that are energy efficient are important for patient comfort and can save costs that can be reallocated to patient care. Still this is not a priority for architects or engineers involved in construction and rehabilitation of healthcare facilities. PEEB therefore developed an energy efficiency guide for healthcare facilities in Tunisia, together with the Tunisian Ministry of Health and the Tunisian Energy Management Agency (ANME). This guide complements the PEEB financing for two hospitals.

This detailed guide gives concrete recommendations to energy managers and architects working in the health sector. It covers areas such as the orientation of waiting areas and patient rooms, energy efficiency and management of different hospital installations, and the integration of renewable energy sources to provide a safe and secure power supply for its day-to-day functioning. The guide also contains an overview of the current state of public and private sector health buildings in Tunisia. An accompanying quick checklist for integrating energy efficiency in health buildings is under development.

Awareness raising and trainings sessions on the guide for energy managers and architects in Tunisia’s regions are planned for the summer of 2021.
