New Hospital Energy Performance Service Helps Hospitals Cut Energy Costs by 25% or More
Date:5/5/2009

NEEDHAM, Mass., May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- A new Hospital Energy Performance Service can help hospitals to improve both building systems performance and energy efficiency by 25% or more -- with much of the savings linked to low-cost modifications. The service is available from Environmental Health & Engineering, Inc. (EH&E), a leading Massachusetts-based environmental and engineering consulting firm.

"Healthcare facilities are heavy energy users and are continually being modified to meet new requirements for equipment and services. Building environmental systems often become out-of-tune as a result. The emphasis in these facilities is placed on maintaining the environment, and optimal system efficiency is seldom addressed," said Michael Della Barba, Director of Commissioning, EH&E.

"We're not approaching this as an expensive equipment replacement program, or a short-sighted energy reduction effort that negatively impacts the environment. We understand critical building systems, and simply make them work as they were intended -- energy efficiency (and in most cases, energy savings) is the natural result," says Della Barba.

Phase I focuses on creating an optimal operating strategy, identifying systems to be optimized, and finding immediate, no-cost and low-cost actions to undertake to improve performance. Phase II includes developing recommendations and prioritizations, based on ROI, for more complex initiatives as well as capital improvements.

"Optimizing the performance of a hospital's building systems can greatly reduce the amount of energy consumed, the maintenance required and the associated costs, and increase the life of system assets," Della Barba said. "The positive impact of increasing a hospital's energy efficiency generates an immediate, direct payback in terms of bottom line budgetary savings -- as well as the hospital's overall quality of care for its patients, and the comfort and safety of the operational environment for its professional caretakers."
