Few solutions have been offered to reduce energy consumption and energy costs in hospitals. Energy efficiency measures can reduce costs overall, without impinging on patient care. Through interviews and surveys, we determined that hospitals recognize energy efficiency as a way to reduce costs, but challenges exist that inhibit progress. Recommendations are made to facilities, assisting organizations, utility companies and policymakers. This report serves as a basis for further research on how hospitals may become sustainable on a national level.
