Abstract :

NEOM, a ?£370 billion Megacity in Saudi Arabia is planned to be constructed in the border between this country and Egypt, to host a large population. This Mega-city is going to be built to embrace new technologies and lifestyle for the young population of this country. One of the main aims of proposing this green city is to fully supply its energy from the renewable sources such as solar power. Therefore, recently the 200 GW solar power plant has been signed off for supplying the energy requirements for the country. But one of the main users of the electrical energy is the hospitals, for which these solar plants need to have sustainable supply of electricity. The main purpose of this research is to analyse the technical possibilities of using fully green technologies for a conceptual hospital framework. In order to achieve this framework, different disciplines including the power supply, waste disposal and energy wastage are going to be evaluated for the purpose of constructing a conceptual sustainable hospital in the new city of NEOM by considering its geographical location, climate conditions, transport facilities and the demand analyses based on the population demographic data. In this study, a combination of three renewable energy sources; solar, biomass, and wind turbine energy are evaluated by using the HOMER PRO software, to fully supply the required power of this modern city.
