Energy efficiency in nursing homes

The SAVE AGE project is the first European initiative, addressing energy efficiency issues in nursing homes as an important potential for decreasing energy consumption and costs.

Besides technical improvements and changes in behaviour it is also important to raise awareness and enhance the employees’ knowledge of energy related facts. Analyses in 100 care homes in 10 European countries resulted in recommendations for residents, managers, and employees in nursing homes, showing them how to improve the comfort of the elderly while saving energy and reducing operational costs.

Best practices gathered through this project are available here.
