Hospitals - or healthcare centres - have enormous energy requirements for ventilation and air conditioning. The well-known concept of demand-controlled ventilation is to be extended to hospitals in the bilateral German-Finish research project dECOnhealth (Demand Controlled Ventilation in Healthcare Settings) and applied exemplary at the University Hospital RWTH Aachen and Helsinki University Hospital. The project, which is sponsored by the BMWi, is scheduled for 3 years and is conducted in cooperation with the Turku University of Applied Science from Finland.
