Hospitals require significant amounts of energy to run their operations. By implementing energy conservation measures and energy saving technologies, hospitals can reduce their energy use, save money, and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. This webinar will highlight examples of energy saving innovations provided in the GGHH guidance document on energy available to members.


Energy-CoverGoals of the webinar:

  • Identify 3 opportunities to save energy and money in hospital operations
  • Discuss return on investment for capital expenses
  • Explain the energy saving benefits of combined heat and power (co-generation)
