Energy to Care Treasure Hunt

What is the Event?

The Energy Treasure Hunt is a 1 to 3 day event hosted by ASHE and based on the ENERGY STAR Treasure Hunt Program. The program is designed to engage attendees in identifying low-cost energy savings opportunities from behavioral, operational, and maintenance actions.  Since its rollout, the Energy Treasure Hunt has been a success in helping hospitals become more efficient, thus conserving more resources for patient care. The program has helped some hospitals find over $200,000 in energy savings! These incredible case studies have solidified that this program is wildly effective for hospitals striving to reduce costs and inspire behavior change for building a culture of efficiency. The hope of the program is that attendees will learn how to apply what they’ve learned on the hunt back at their own facilities, inspiring a ripple effect of culture change and resource conservation.
