Increase Awareness of Energy Consumption Through Submetering

Submeters are a critical element for measuring energy consumption. The installation of submeters has been shown to foster energy savings simply through the awareness of energy consumption they provide, which promotes the conscientious use of energy and yields savings of up to 15%.

Identify Areas Where Energy Savings Can be Attained

Submeters provide key energy data that allows facility engineers and financial managers to identify areas within the hospital that are energy inefficient or that may need improvement. Areas that are often found to be inefficient are patient floors, operating rooms, emergency rooms, maternity departments and doctor’s offices. Energy efficient buildings can consume up to 85% less power, or three to seven times less, than the poorest performing buildings for the exact same use.

EIG’s submeters allow you to identify energy used by specific areas or departments. And EIG’s EnergyReporterPQA™ application allows you to bill departments directly for their energy use, and to create detailed usage reports for areas and time periods. The application’s Usage Dashboard lets you easily compare energy use and costs between departments and timeframes.

Implement Energy Reduction Programs and Monitor Progress

According to ENERGY STAR®, a U.S. government-backed energy savings program, U.S. Healthcare facilities spend over $6.5 billion on energy each year and that amount is expected to significantly rise to meet the increase in patients’ needs. U.S. Healthcare facilities, including hospitals, elder-care facilities, nursing homes and urgent care centers, are affected by rising energy costs.

No matter the size of the facility, the common element of successful energy management is a commitment starting with the support of senior administrators, e.g., the CEO, CFO and COO. Armed with the reporting and predictive analytics they get from EIG’s meters and energy management solutions, facility managers and engineering managers are able to gain the support of senior executives, and to make decisions that will realize energy savings for their healthcare facility.

Analyze Power Quality to Insure Reliable Power to Critical Areas

Critical healthcare areas, such as surgical facilities, nuclear medicine and emergency rooms, need to be certain that the power they are receiving is reliable. EIG meters measure, analyze, and report on the quality of the power being received from the utility. Using EIG’s CommunicatorPQA™ 5.0 application, you can view real time energy and power quality readings and create energy and power quality reports.

EIG meters show you areas of concern and give you the information you need to act quickly. Since reliable power is integral to any energy management solution, a power reliability program should also be implemented, to insure that the quality of the power and the reliability of the facility’s infrastructure are optimal. Energy management and energy reliability go hand in hand to insure smooth and efficient optimal operation of any hospital facility.
