Did Your Energy Efficiency Project Get Lost in Translation? Financial Speak for Facility Managers

Last Updated: 06-20-2020

Do you have energy efficiency projects that have been postponed or rejected due to capital budget limitations, other projects with better returns, or lack of expertise? Yet, from your perspective the project should be a “no brainer” due to the immediate positive cash flows generated by the energy savings. Understanding your organization’s decision-making process, being able to effectively speak to the benefit of improved cash flow, and improving your financial literacy can greatly increase your probability of receiving approval for a project. The self-funding aspect of energy efficiency is often under-appreciated by senior management, and you want to be able to clearly address any questions, concerns, and benefits.

ENERGY STAR score for hospitals (general medical and surgical) (Canada)

Last Updated: 08-27-2020

The ENERGY STAR Score for Hospitals in Canada applies to general medical hospitals, including critical access hospitals and children’s hospitals. The objective of the ENERGY STAR score is to fairly assess how a property’s energy use measures up against similar properties considering the climate, weather, and business activities. A statistical analysis of the peer building population is performed to identify the aspects of property activity that are significant drivers of energy use and to normalize for those same factors. The result of this analysis is an equation that predicts the energy use of a property, based on its business activities. This prediction is compared to the property’s actual energy use to yield a 1 – 100 percentile ranking in relation to the national population of properties.
