Energy Impact Calculator

As pressure for institutional transparency increases, “brown” energy may well be seen as carrying significant health costs and risks. By comparison, energy efficiency and clean energy have advantages with respect to health, regulatory compliance, reliability, community benefits, reputation, fiduciary responsibility, liability, and climate change.

What are your facility’s energy health impacts and costs? What can you do to improve them?

Based on US EPA analysis of health impacts of power plant emissions of sulphur dioxide, nitrous oxide and mercury, the Healthcare Energy Impact Calculator (EIC) estimates premature deaths, chronic bronchitis, asthma attacks, emergency room visits and more, by kilowatt hour per year. The EIC displays the projected number of incidents, estimates of medical treatment costs, their external societal costs, and the likely emissions permit costs for the green house gas carbon dioxide.
