1.1 Background of Study
Medical clinics consume a lot of energy due to how they are run and the many individuals that utilization them. They are open 24 hours per day; a huge number of workers, patients, and guests possess the structures day to day. Thusly, refined ventilation and cooling (HVAC) frameworks control the temperatures and wind current in the medical clinic wards to keep up with cooling.
In Nigeria, successful medical care conveyance administration is a vital and a beneficial social help. Proficient medical care administration conveyance is vigorously subject to solid and sufficient power supply, However the energy interest of these offices are barely met by the public power supply. Accordingly, most medical care offices are intensely subject to counterfeit and elective method for power supply like diesel and petroleum generators.
A variable which puts a weight on its day to day functional expenses (Nwanya, Sam-Amobi, and Ekechukwu, 2016).
The issue of energy proficiency is a call for worry on the planet in general most particularly in institutional structures like Hospitals. While the structure area is answerable for around 40 % of energy use. As per Shchuchenko, Lie and Thorgeirharsem, (2013) Hospitals address 6 % of the absolute energy utilization in the public structure area and are one of the most energy concentrated building classifications. They further think that; a clinic utilizes 2.5 times more energy than a comparable estimated place of business.
