Energy Reduction in Hospitals

Hospitals are energy intense because of the nature of the services they provide around-the-clock. Newer hospitals can often use more energy than older ones, some of which can be attributed to higher environmental standards. Understanding how energy flows through a hospital is crucial in formulating strategies to reduce consumption. This seminar will review where energy is consumed, offer proven concepts for energy reduction, and highlight where one can go astray on the journey to energy efficiency. Technicians will receive a certificate of completion for this course.
