February 9, 2011 - 1:00 pm - February 9, 2011 - 1:00 pm -- Eastern Standard Time


EPA’s voluntary ENERGY STAR program helps organizations implement successful energy management strategies by offering tools to benchmark energy performance, campaigns to engage employees, best practices, and national recognition for top performance. An exciting year lies ahead for healthcare facilities participating in the ENERGY STAR program – new ratings for senior care communities, updates for hospitals and MOBs, new energy saving campaigns for employees, and more. Learn what’s in store for 2011.


  • Learn about the new benchmark for Senior Care communities, to be launched in EPA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager this Spring, as well as EPA’s work with the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) to update the benchmark for hospitals.
  • Policy Trends – More and more state and local governments are leveraging ENERGY STAR in benchmarking and disclosure initiatives. We’ll share the latest, and how you can learn more.
  • Who Wants to Be the Next Biggest Loser? – Find out who won EPA’s first ever National Building Competition and how all 14 buildings fared, including the Solon Family Health Center of the Cleveland Clinic. What does it take to enter in 2011?
  • Recognition Opportunities – Rewarding success is key to motivating continuous improvement. From the ENERGY STAR label to ASHE’s Energy Efficiency Commitment Initiative and ASHE’s newest campaign – “The Next 100” campaign to drive healthcare buildings towards superior energy performance – we’ll overview how you can get recognized for improvements and top performance.
  • Employee Engagement – Earth Day is right around the corner. We’ll share the Earth Day communications materials and ideas EPA has developed for 2011, as well as campaign and competition frameworks to help you engage your employees and community to make a difference this Earth Day.
