2016 ASHE Energy and Water Survey
ASHE is asking all health care facilities to complete its 2016 Energy and Water Survey, which will help update ENERGY STAR scoring models in addition to identifying energy and water use trends. The data will be anonymously shared with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency with the goals of:
- Updating the ENERGY STAR 1-100 score models for both General Medical & Surgical Hospitals and Medical Office Buildings
- Expanding to new ENERGY STAR 1-100 score models for other health care space types
- Evaluating the potential to develop a 1-100 score for water efficiency
Earn CEUs (contact hours) by submitting completed surveys.
ASHE will provide 0.2 CEUs (2 contact hours) per complete survey to go toward renewal of your CHFM, CHC, or any other certification. Participants can earn up to 1.0 CEU (10 contact hours) max per person. Those who already completed the survey will receive confirmation in their inbox.
All health care organizations are encouraged to participate. A large response rate is critical because large amounts of data is needed to update the ENERGY STAR scoring models. To help encourage participation, ASHE will randomly select one survey participant from each ASHE region to win a $250 Amazon gift card.*
The deadline to complete your submission is April 28, 2017.
The success of this effort will largely depend on the response rate, so please set aside time to complete this important survey. If you currently use Portfolio Manager, you will be able to share your Portfolio Manager data with ASHE, which allows you to skip sections of the survey. You will still need to provide additional operational characteristics about your facility.

Submit your completed survey to ASHEenergy@aha.org.
ASHE held a webinar in September to explain the survey and answer frequently asked questions. A recording of that webinar is available on demand below.
ASHE also held a webinar for chapter leaders on February 8, 2017. View the recording of that webinar below.
