solarwall Quebec Sherbrooke University Hospital solar air heating system Year: 2014
Location: Quebec, Canada
Summary: The Sherbrooke University Hospital is the 4th largest hospital in Quebec with a staff of 10,000 people and 700 beds. The hospital embarked on a comprehensive energy upgrade program to reduce ongoing operating costs and lower their CO2 footprint. The energy efficiency firm Ecosystem was selected to oversee the $20 million energy upgrade program and they made recommendations on different technology solutions to address heating, lighting, cooling, and ventilation. Ecosystem guarantees the energy savings for their projects, so only well-established technologies were included in the upgrade program. A SolarWall® system was selected to provide solar heated ventilation air for one of the wings in the hospital.
