Reduce Utility Consumption Across Extensive Hospital Network

Industry: Healthcare/hospitals

Helping McLaren Health Care Reduce Utility Consumption By 8% - 18% Across Extensive Hospital Network


Challenge


The McLaren Health Care portfolio consists of 12 main hospitals, all vary in age, construction, function, maintenance required, and level of BAS control. All hospitals were operating independently with no corporate standards or specifications to guide them in the operation and maintenance of their assets. In addition, there was no portfolio-level visibility into the energy footprint of each facility, making energy efficiency and sustainability across the portfolio nearly impossible.


Solution


Implemented the Resolute solution across the portfolio (currently 11 hospitals with additional facilities coming online) to provide fault detection and advanced analytics, while collecting, trending and analyzing electric, natural gas and domestic water utility data--along with real-time BAS data--to obtain operational efficiencies and drive energy savings.


  • Integrated 21 disparate BAS systems across 11 sites into a single portfolio energy dashboard and analytics engine.


  • Installed building-level electric, natural gas, domestic water, cooling BTU, and electric sub-meters on HVAC equipment across 11 sites to establish an industry-accepted weather adjusted baseline by which savings can be accurately measured.


  • Identified dozens of ECM opportunities at each site, including: OR Airflow Optimization, Optimized Start/Stop, Discharge Air Temperature Resets and more.


  • Established real-time, monitoring-based commissioning for all existing and new construction projects.


  • Provided critical measurement and verification (M&V) data for corporate-wide LED lighting upgrade project.



"McLaren Health Care is committed to reducing our carbon footprint by decreasing our energy consumption. Implementing the Resolute software across 11-subsidiaries gave us the ability to review our utility use and, through their analytics, make informed decisions and decrease our utility use; these decisions have helped us to quickly achieve a 8% savings from our baseline with some facilities seeing 18% savings."
