These tools allow users to easily perform complex or repetitive calculations associated with the energy system design process.

Even the design of a small energy system for a remote health-care facility requires specialized design tools. System designs need to refer to an energy audit to know how much load the energy system is expected to service. A system optimization tool, such as HOMER’s, is also useful in sizing different energy system components (PV arrays, batteries, generators, etc.) in relation to each other. Optimum component sizing will depend on their prices in relation to each other, which varies in different locations. The links below provide more information on how program and facility managers can use these tools to understand the engineering that goes into designing and procuring a new health-care facility energy system.
