Energy Efficiency

New York-Presbyterian Hospital Partners with NYSERDA (PDF)
NYSERDA has provided more than $1.9 million in program incentives to the New York-Presbyterian Hospital for energy-efficiency studies, energy-rate analysis, and the implementation of energy-efficiency measures between 2009 and 2010. These projects resulted in over $4 million and 50 million kWh annual savings from the New York-Presbyterian Hospital partnership with NYSERDA.

Water

Massachusetts Water Resources Authority- Hospitals- Case Studies
The MWRA's Industrial, Commercial and Institutional (ICI) Water Management Program was developed to help businesses, industries and institutions improve their water efficiency. Since its formation in 1989, the ICI program has helped various companies in the MWRA service area reduce their water consumption, thereby reducing operational costs. Through the development of Water Efficiency Measures (WEMs) all facilities have the potential to evaluate opportunities for water savings without adversely affecting operations. Water saving measures need not be expensive nor complex to be effective. The program has aided hospitals ranging from 130 bed capacity to over 500 beds, with annual water consumption from 15 million gallons to 145 million gallons. Each hospital study conducted has shown at least one area of each facility where significant reductions in water usage can be achieved.
