The services sector within which is also the Health Sector is a sector with particular importance given that the majority of consumers in this sector are public services consumers. Under Directive 2006/32/EC this sector should play promoter role of developments in terms of improving energy efficiency. Given the fact that many projects in the field of energy efficiency mainly funded by donors aimed the Public Health sector because beside achieving energy savings there should also be reached the comfort level within the building as most of the Health care buildings in Kosova lack the basic comfort level regarding internal temperature, air flow and lighting. Most of the Hospitals and Family Health care Centers are built between 1970-1990 therefore they present low thermal insulation properties as the building codes at that time had little or no consideration for thermal transmittance. Hospital buildings are in general not provided with outside walls insulation while windows are mostly wooden double pane window or with aluminum frame. Central heating system is the most used heating alternative. This paper aims to define energy consumption in these buildings and to analyze actual projects regarding implementation of energy efficiency measures and application of the renewable energy resources. The work will be based on the findings of relevant studies and energy audits for energy consumption for heating, cooling, cooking, water, sanitation, electrical equipment and economic feasibility of efficiency measures being taken during renovations of buildings. The paper will also give recommendations on what should be done to lower energy intensity of this buildings.
