The Targeting 100! Research program, with its goal of reducing energy use by 60 percent from typical operational examples to less than 100 KBtu/sq. ft./year, lays the groundwork for achieving exceptionally energy-efficient hospitals. Detailed energy and cost models show it is possible to meet the 2030 Challenge across the United States with very little incremental cost increase. Strategies for achieving this goal include improving interior environmental quality, setting energy use goals and using energy benchmarking to track progress, and developing integrated teams and strategies. The presenters will use case studies to discuss how to adopt these strategies and introduce a digital tool developed for implementing Targeting 100! This session will enable attendees to:
Describe energy performance metrics for hospitals and major opportunities to increase energy efficiency in six climate regions in the United States.
Identify specific energy end use patterns in an operational hospital.
Discuss strategies that reduce a hospital-s overall energy load to meet significant energy efficiency goals, such as the 2030 Challenge.
Explain how case study projects implemented deep energy efficiency strategies.
