Energy to Care Empowers Hospitals to Put Resources Back into Patient Care.
The Energy Efficiency Commitment (E2C) program has been renamed as Energy to Care and expands upon previous efforts to improve energy efficiency in the health care field.
Energy to Care is a free energy benchmarking and awards program for health care facility management professionals who want to provide value back to their organizations through energy savings. It gives users the opportunity to compare their energy reduction efforts to those of similar nearby facilities and to challenge each other to greater achievements. By achieving greater energy savings, hospitals can free up resources to support the organization’s mission of providing patients with the best care. The Energy to Care program also includes Awards that recognize hospitals for their energy efficiency achievements.
The first step toward becoming more efficient is benchmarking your facilities’ energy use. You can’t manage what you don’t measure!
The next step to becoming more efficient is to take on projects that will help your facilities save energy and resources. Visit the Sustainability Roadmap for tools to implement energy-saving solutions specifically tailored to health care facilities.
Both Energy to Care and the Sustainability Roadmap are backed by the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE), a personal membership group of the American Hospital Association, a trusted nonprofit resource that exists to support the health care facility management profession and optimize the health care physical environment.
