Born in 1852, the Lariboisière AP-HP Hospital, located along the Boulevard de la Chapelle in Paris is a major hospital part of the AP-HP North University Hospital Group. With its 976 beds, the Lariboisière site is composed of numerous specialised departments (ENT, neurology, ophthalmology) including a maternity department. An extension project is scheduled for completion as of 2026.
This ISO 50 001 certification is dedicated to the management of energy, network maintenance and technical infrastructure with the aim of continuously improving the installations and systems. In addition to potential energy savings, this certification makes it possible to integrate the energy factor into equipments usage and services purchase and into construction or refurbishing works.
It applies to all hospitals and services or functional departments, as energy consumption is an expense to reduce and carbon emissions a challenge that any organization has to take into account.
This approach is aligned with the AP-HP University Hospital Group's requirements. The group wants to be at the forefront of the issues related to the energy transition. Indeed, the annual energy consumption of Lariboisière and the hospital sites is high.
In 2020, Lariboisière's consumption amounted to almost 28,000,000 kilowatt hours, equivalent to the energy consumption of 2,593 two-person households living in 50 m².
