Retro-Commissioning: Energy Savings Solutions for Healthcare
In today’s economy, keeping a hospital financially healthy without risking the environment of care is a daunting task. Administrators have traditionally looked to high-cost areas, such as staffing, services, and equipment budgets, to cut expenses. Unfortunately, these types of cost-cutting methods come with risks that could potentially affect patient care, safety, and satisfaction. At the same time, energy use and costs are rising dramatically, lowering hospital margins and consuming financial resources that could otherwise be reinvested to help hospital growth and support patient-centric projects. Directors of Healthcare Facilities, Maintenance and Operations are looking for an easier way to improve their hospital’s financial health — by increasing energy efficiency. Real, long-term savings can be found by integrating energy management and monitoring into hospital buildings. Energy saving solutions can be implemented through the process of building retro-commissioning. This course will introduce the concept of retro-commissioning in the healthcare field, and discuss the impact that retro-commissioning can have on energy efficiency for healthcare facilities.
Identify the value of retro-commissioning in healthcare facilities Explain the role retro-commissioning can play in achieving the energy efficiency goals of healthcare facilities Describe the energy savings benefits that retro-commissioning can provide
