Saving Energy with Windsor Regional Hospital and Union Gas

Windsor Regional Hospital participates in the 360 Sustainable Energy Planning Program

Burlington, Ontario, Mar. 29, 2010: Over the past several years, Windsor Regional Hospital has committed to incorporating energy management into their daily activities. Due to their ongoing commitment, they were the first recipients of EnWin Utilities' Green Star Award for recognition of their contribution to helping the environment. This was accomplished by implementing an energy management strategy that addressed not only their energy consumption but also their impact on the environment.

The focus was on objectives that would help the hospital reduce its operating costs without compromising patient care. Being a 24/7 facility with unpredictable occupancy rates, priority is given to patients and not adjusting patient care around energy consumption.

To ensure that all areas of energy management were being covered and that there would be systems in place to encourage continuous improvements over time, Windsor Regional Hospital participated in 360 Energy's Sustainable Energy Planning Program.  The program helped to confirm and benchmark their progress based on other hospitals throughout the U.K. and North America. Completed objectives included the installation of a reverse osmosis water treatment system, occupancy light sensors, and a condensate recovery system.  These initiatives resulted in an ongoing annual reduction of over 600 KW of electricity, 2.2 million liters of water and 98,000 m3 of natural gas.  After going through the program, Windsor Regional Hospital also developed a plan to ensure that energy saving initiatives continued over time.

As part of the public service market, hospitals have always functioned with limited funding. With energy costs rising and budget allotments shrinking, the need for an effective and sustainable energy management program is vital.
