Electricity security in hospitals

Hospitals, clinics and healthcare centres: a vitally important sector. Energy demands for the secure and uninterrupted supply of electricity.

Electricity is essential for hospitals, clinics, healthcare establishments and care homes to function, and they have demands in addition to the elementary needs for electricity (lighting, HVAC, telephones, information systems, etc.). In a hospital, a power cut can incur serious risks to the well-being and safety of the patients, but also of the professionals who work there.

Hospitals and healthcare centres demand an uninterrupted supply of electricity. Even a very short failure of the electricity supply systems can impact the activities of operating theatres, laboratories and hospital wards. This is a critical sector, where the supply of electricity is vitally important.

Regulations require healthcare establishments to have a secure, standalone and storable source of backup electricity in order to prevent any incidents and to guarantee the faultless continuity of the electricity supply. This source must guarantee that the medical systems and the hospital’s equipment can operate normally during short power cuts, and must enable operations to continue in the event of a longer and more serious failure.

Thanks to our expertise in energy engineering and to our backup electricity systems for hospitals and healthcare centres, you can benefit from solutions specifically adapted to your healthcare establishment in order to secure a continuous supply of electricity for your medical equipment.

Backup gensets for hospitals and healthcare centres

The power of the gensets installed varies significantly, according to the quantity of energy required. You must have backup gensets that meet the energy demands of your hospital equipment and infrastructures in order to guarantee the continuity of activity of your hospital or healthcare centre, while also optimising your costs.

Our experts offer the best equipment in our broad range of diesel and biodiesel gensets that are best adapted to hospitals.

UPS backup power supplies for hospitals

You must have a guarantee that the equipment that performs vital functions operates properly, and without any interruptions of the power supply, 24 hours a day, so that your hospital or healthcare centre is able to provide quality care. Even the shortest micro-power cut, during which your hospital equipment is unavailable, a voltage dip or a variation of the frequency of the electricity network that affects electronic equipment, can put the lives of your patients in danger. Therefore, it is imperative to maintain an uninterrupted, quality supply of electricity in your establishment, even when the public grid fails.

Our UPS dedicated to hospitals guarantee the continuity of the electric current as soon as a break in the current is detected.

In combination with our backup gensets, our uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) can perfectly cover the tens of seconds that are necessary to start up the gensets. An Eneria expert can act as your single point of contact for the successful integration of these two systems.

Gas gensets

We offer a broad range of gas or biogas-fuelled gensets to meet your needs for a continuous or backup power supply.
An energy supply solution that is perfectly suited to hospitals and healthcare centres.

It is important to remember that even short power cuts can have serious consequences in a hospital. Hospitals, clinics and care homes need electricity in order to function on a daily basis, to cope with emergencies at night and to power the numerous electrical devices used to administer care to patients or to keep them alive (monitors, breathing apparatus, etc.).

Our cogeneration or trigeneration gensets are the optimal means of providing protection against outages or failures of the electricity network, while also producing heat and/or cold. They ensure that patient care can continue to be administered in complete safety.


Our electricity storage batteries can be used to store the surplus energy produced by your systems, and to use this surplus energy when your demand for electricity exceeds your production. They are the ideal solution to overcome the intermittent nature of certain renewable energies and to optimise the management of your energy mix.

Do you want to harness the potential of renewable energies to fully or partially power your hospital or healthcare centre?
We have the solutions.


We offer biodiesel-fuelled gensets that can effectively help you to reduce your environmental impact.

Photovoltaic solar panels

Our solar panels are a source of renewable energy that supplement your main energy source and allow you to make good use of your available spaces to produce green energy.
You can install our solar panels on your roofs, or our photovoltaic canopies in your car parks.

Biomass boilers

Biomass enables you to reduce your dependency on fossil energies. It also uses local resources.

Thermal solar panels

Thermal solar panels produce water at temperatures of up to 180°C that can be used for your hospital, even in overcast weather.

Hydrogen genset

The hydrogen genset solution: zero emissions guaranteed. The GEH2® only discharges water. Totally silent and odour-free.

Hydrogen-powered fuel cells produce the electricity you need for both a continuous power supply and a backup energy source.

When combined with our other sources of renewable energies, this technology offers a multitude of possibilities to reduce the environmental impact of your hospital.
