In this thesis we have successfully proved that there is a huge potential of energy savings in the Palestinian hospitals sector (10-25%) by implementing some energy conservation measures (no and low cost investment) on the most energy consumption equipment such as boilers, oxygen generation units, air conditioning, lighting systems, solar water heaters and others. The efficient use of energy and energy management in Palestinian hospitals is not in a better condition than most developing countries. Thus we tried to establish a pace toward the efficient use of energy and energy management in hospitals through conducting several energy audits in some different hospitals where lighting, air-conditioning, oxygen generation units, power factor or other service levels can be reduced without detriment to comfort or health care. We have achieved average total savings of 17% for hospitals, and 14%, 43% and 17% for cooling and heating, oxygen generation units, power factor correction and 5% for lighting systems, respectively
