Energy Roundup Tips
Carl Weinschenk, Energy Manager Today Hospitals are unique users of energy: They never close, use more energy-intensive equipment than other businesses and have demanding environmental requirements.
Cities across the nation continue to blaze a trail toward a more energy-efficient economy. We’re excited to announce that more than 7,000 buildings and plants earned EPA’s ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance in 2015 — that’s nearly 20 every day! Of the 7,000 buildings and plants, nearly half of them came from our 25 ENERGY STAR Top Cities.
