Awareness raising through energy monitoring
Two volunteers (students) have under the supervision of BBM installed digital electricity meters in eight catholic hospitals in Uganda. The evaluation helps hospitals to save energy and shows the profitability of existing solar power systems. In the installed electricity meters the technicians of BBM integrated a data storage which plots the consumption of power.
Financier is DKA. (Dreikönigsaktion) The target of the project was to offer the technicians of the hospital a possibility to overview the electric systems and to recognize and correct diverse problems early.
In a few hospitals this power monitoring system was used earlier. In this way a comparison with the data was possible in the latest years.
In addition, the staff were interviewed on site. The target was to find out the energy consumption for the near future. From information about the actual energy consumption and the planned future development, the BBM calculated a load profile. The basis to this is a strategic development plan for the next five years.
