The Canarian Health Service has invested almost a million Euros in a project to supply Lanzarote’s Dr Jose Molina Orosa Hospital with geothermal energy.
The pioneering project will be executed over the next 18 months, with 70% of the money coming from the EU’s Next Generation fund. It is expected that 500kW of energy will be provided, which will be used for air conditioning, heating and hot water production in the hospital.
The consumption of around 2.7 million kWh a year are forecast to be saved by the project – an annual financial saving of around €729,000.
The project exploits Lanzarote’s natural geothermal activity, and is the first time geothermal energy will be used in the Canarian Health Service.
