All Electric Hosptial Guide

DEA members have been working to ensure that new hospital capital projects across Australia will be all-electric (no gas infrastructure for new hospitals or capital work upgrades).

We have developed the all electric hospital guide: Building the next hospital to be net zero carbon emissions (all-electric) which outlines practical steps for health professionals to advocate for all electric new hospital builds to ensure we protect and promote the health of our patients.

The Victorian Government has recently announced that all new homes public buildings and hospitals (from January 2024) will be all-electric in design. This is a fantastic forward step for decarbonising Australia’s energy needs. More information on the announcement here:

Below is a list of the all-electric hospitals planned to be built in Australia.
