EPA Updates Energy Star to Support Greater Energy Efficiency in Hospitals
Energy Star's Portfolio Manager, an online energy measurement and tracking tool, will now include the updated hospital methodology. The updated Energy Star national energy performance scale methodology for hospitals now includes data inputs for the number of MRI machines and personnel and adjustments to weather normalization to reflect the amount of energy used to cool the building. Additionally, the methodology's 5 million square foot size cap was removed, allowing larger hospitals to take advantage of the online tool.
