In 2012, ASHRAE and DOE released the Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) for Large Hospitals, which gives recommendations for saving energy in large hospitals. This session will show how health care PDC professionals can use this guide. Using a combination of lecture and case study, the presenters will show participants how to apply the AEDG in the design, construction, and maintenance of new facilities and in existing facilities, helping them respond to rising costs and meet their sustainability needs. This session will enable attendees to:
Compare facilities that follow AEDG for Large Hospitals to those that comply with ASHRAE 90.1-2004.
List the key recommendations of the AEDG for Large Hospitals.
Identify which recommendations are most practical for saving energy in existing facilities.
Discover how a greenfield hospital achieved LEED silver status by incorporating many of the recommendations included in the AEDG for Large Hospitals.
