{Past Event} - 20% Energy Reduction by 2020 with Ascension Health System

March 27, 2013 - 2:00 pm - March 27, 2013 - 3:00 pm -- Eastern Standard Time

Topic

Ascension Health achieved reduced energy use 7.1 percent and demonstrated $18.8 million in cost avoidance from June 2008 to June 2012 across 30 million square feet in 75 hospitals in 21 states and Washington D.C. Needing a new goal, Ascension Health joined the Department of Energy Better Buildings Challenge and committed to 20 percent energy reduction by 2020.  We will present the strategies to achieve the ambitious energy reduction goal and review the funding methods used to pay for energy efficiency projects and the selection and implementation process used for the Preferred Energy Consulting Firm engagement.

Objectives

  • Learn how Ascension Health became a founding partner of the Department of Energy Better Buildings Challenge and set a big goal to reduce energy use across the entire system 20% by 2020.
  • Understand how Ascension Health’s Environmental Stewardship Program began, reduced energy use 7.1 percent and demonstrated $18.8 million in cost avoidance from June 2008 to June 2012.
  • Take home a list of low cost, no cost, “low hanging fruit” energy conservation methods in use at Ascension Health.
  • After completing the webinar, participants will understand the Ascension Health Facility Infrastructure Pool, which is a dedicated fund used for infrastructure projects with a focus on energy efficiency (chillers, boilers, building automation systems, backup generators, etc.).
