Banner Health – Saves energy!

By |Published On: 2019-06-12|

Working with energy efficiency saves energy and money something that is proven over and over again!

It doesn’t matter what business you are working within, wasting energy is always bad and the focus on energy efficiency is increasing. Banner Health is based in Phoenix, Arizona, and operates 28 hospitals and several specialized facilities across 6 states. They decided to work company wide to decrease energy consumption and improve reliability.

2010 Banner Health and the energy cunsutlants at ETC Group started the work together, and ETC started to implement retro recommissioning (ReCx) projects including ClimaCheck analysis for multiple facilities, achieving significant energy savings. The first pilot resulted in $449,000 in lower energy costs, and energy savings of 4.7 million kwh.

The work has been ongoing since then and the result from Phase 1 can be seen here:

VALUE DELIVERED (Phase I, 10 buildings)
– $3.8M annual savings
– 14M kwh annual energy savings
– 88K dth annual energy savings
– Exceeded estimates by ~$1M

Phase 2 and Phase 3 includes another 15 buildings. To make this savings ETC is using different tools and ClimaCheck is used to analyse and optimise chiller performance.

If you want to know more about this project there is a webinar you can attend, the 19 of June. That features April Guymon and Shawn Mathiesen of Banner Health. If you did not have the chance to attend to the webinar email us and we can share it with you.
