Corporate Energy Strategies
As healthcare systems continue to merge and expand, the ability to systematically assess energy, sustainability, and environmental stewardship across facilities grows more difficult. With an ever-changing energy landscape impacted by regulatory, legislative, geopolitical, and technological factors, staying proactive becomes daunting. Ensuring that facilities are sharing best practices is challenging enough; but add to the mix the need to eliminate disjointed efforts by aggregating where applicable, and the requirement for a formal Corporate Energy Strategy (CES) becomes obvious.
A Few Things to Consider:
- Has the C-Suite/Executive Suite realized the need for system-wide energy management and environmental stewardship?
- Who is the organization’s internal energy champion driving progress?
- Are facilities communicating to share best practices?
- Are energy procurement contracts aggregated (where advantageous) and coterminous with the same favorable terms and conditions?
- Have you set and/or hit your carbon reduction and sustainability goals?
- Has your healthcare system assessed a portfolio-approach to onsite generation projects such as solar, battery storage, cogeneration, and fuel cells?
- Is your healthcare system benchmarking its annual energy use and cost? Have short- and long-term reduction targets been set?
- What current and upcoming regulatory mandates may impact energy at your facilities?
