Be recognized for your efforts through an Energy to Care or Energy Champion Award!
NOTE: Access to ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager is currently unavailable due to the U.S. government shutdown. This has affected the ability to update current energy data through Portfolio Manager and any push/pull integrations with Building OS. Access to the Energy to Care Dashboards through Lucid Building OS are still available, however the energy data available is not current. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please contact the Energy to Care helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Due to the unavailability of Portfolio Manager, Energy to Care Awards and Energy Champion Awards applications will not be made available until approximately 2 weeks following the re-instatement of ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. Please check back regularly as application due dates may be affected.
Energy to Care Award
The Energy to Care Awards honor health care facilities that reduce energy consumption by 10 percent in a single year or by 15 percent over two years. The program also recognizes previous award winners that reduce energy consumption by 5 percent.
The energy use reduction percentage is calculated by comparing energy use in the baseline year to the performance year. Energy use is defined as weather normalized source EUI in units of kBtus/sf/yr. This data can be found by pulling a report from your Energy Star Portfolio Manager account. The award requires that an ASHE member conduct a peer review on the application and data submitted. Please ask the ASHE member to verify the peer review is complete by emailing email@example.com and providing property name, verification date, and member name and membership number.
Energy Champion Award
The Energy Champion Award is given out once per year to honor a single facility (acute care hospital or medical office building as defined by Energy Star) that has demonstrated outstanding leadership in energy efficiency. Hospitals and medical office buildings participating in Energy to Care that have an ASHE member on staff are eligible for this prestigious award. The award requires that a Professional Engineer (PE) peer review the application and data submitted. Please ask the Professional Engineer to verify the peer review is complete by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and providing property name, verification date, and Professional Engineer name.
***Note: Facilities must have submitted an application and completed the three-step process to participate in Energy to Care to be considered for an award. See get started page for details. ***
