To achieve eco-friendly hospitals it is necessary to empirically verify the effect of meteorological factors on the power consumption of the hospital. Using daily meteorological big data from 2009 to 2013, we studied the weather conditions impact to power consumption and analyzed the patterns of power consumption of two hospitals. R analysis revealed that temperature among the meteorological factors had the greatest impact on the hospital power consumption, and was a significant factor regardless of hospital size. The pattern of hospital power consumption differed considerably depending on the hospital size. The larger hospital had a linear pattern of power consumption and the smaller hospital had a quadratic nonlinear pattern. A typical pattern of increasing power consumption during a hot summer and a cold winter was evident for both hospitals. The results of this study suggest that a hospital`s functional specificity and meteorological factors should be considered to improve energy savings and eco-friendly building.
