THE SEARCH FOR HIDDEN SAVINGS: 2018 ENERGY TREASURE HUNT
Monday, April 9, 2018
The ENERGY STAR Treasure Hunt was initially developed for the automobile industry; Toyota first helped pioneer the development of the program to learn of potential energy reductions in their facilities. The idea was to bring people from all areas of the company to participate in the program, hoping it would create a culture of efficiency and accountability. The program was so successful that the EPA began rolling it out in other fields, including health care.
How the Hunt is Changing Health Care
Since its rollout, the Energy Treasure Hunt has been a success in helping hospitals become more efficient, thus conserving more resources for patient care. The program has helped some hospitals find over $200,000 in energy savings! These incredible case studies have solidified that this program is wildly effective for hospitals striving to reduce costs and inspire behavior change for building a culture of efficiency.
How Can I Participate?
Directly following this year’s ASHE Annual Conference, Northwest Hospital and Medical Center will play host to its own Energy Treasure Hunt. Conference attendees are invited to extend their visit in Seattle and participate in the one-and-a-half day program, which is being sponsored by Eaton. While helping this hospital find potential savings, you will gain valuable experience and be able to apply the lessons learned to find hidden savings in your own health care facility!
- The event will be held July 18 and 19 at Northwest Hospital & Medical Center in Seattle, WA.
- The deadline to register is June 8, 2018. Attendees will have the option to sign up for the Energy Treasure Hunt as an add-on during the online Annual Conference registration process.
- In the weeks prior to the event, participants will be asked to participate in three, 1-hour webinars.
