Recorded On: 06/25/2015
This session has been approved for 1.0 AIA credit
Leverage your facility investments by developing a comprehensive energy management plan for your hospital or medical center. Reducing energy usage reduces a hospital's operational costs and carbon footprint. EPA research indicates that hospitals that implement energy conservation measures outperform competing hospitals by as much as 10% in net operating income. By adopting a comprehensive energy management plan, rather than a piecemeal approach, healthcare organizations can ensure that their investments in this area offer the best return on investment.
- Review 13 steps of a comprehensive energy management plan for a healthcare facility.
- Understand the high potential return on investment related to reducing healthcare facility energy costs.
- Learn about benchmarking options and appropriate responses to findings, including retro-commissioning and retrofits.
- Analyze financing options and local grant/rebate opportunities to pay for studies and upgrades.
