Steps for hospitals to achieve Energy Star status
Hospitals can follow five steps to become U.S. EPA Energy Star rated.
For hospitals considering how to become Energy Star-rated , the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
has a technical five-stage approach.
The steps, which mirror those for other commercial
buildings, should be performed chronologically to maximize energy savings, said
Clark Reed, director, Healthcare Facilities Division, Energy Star.
The first three steps are about reducing heat gain
in the building, Reed said. After a building minimizes its heat gain, it can
then most efficiently address the cooling process.
In general, each of the five stages has an
incrementally higher investment level, he said.
