Helping McLaren Health Care Earn ASHE Energy to Care Award
We are thrilled to win ASHE Energy to Care Awards for our Bay Region and Special Care facilities. Not only are the awards great recognition for the team and all its hard work and dedication over the past couple of years, but it also helps validate our sustainability strategy, investments, and direction. McLaren Health Care remains committed to reducing our carbon footprint and though we have made tremendous strides over a short period of time, we are eager to achieve even greater levels of energy efficiency because we understand the devastating impact inefficient energy use has on society and the planet as a whole.

The Road to Energy Efficiency
In 2016, McLaren partnered with Resolute Building Intelligence to improve energy efficiency across its network of hospitals. McLaren implemented Resolute’s cloud-based solution across the portfolio to leverage the solution’s powerful fault detection capabilities and advanced analytics to rapidly find and fix equipment and operational issues. The solution is also used to collect, trend, and analyze electric, natural gas, and domestic water utility data along with real-time BAS data critical in developing and implementing data-driven strategies that enhance facility operations and reduce energy consumption and costs.
Through their partnership with Resolute and its comprehensive energy management solution, McLaren’s facility team has significantly improved energy efficiency across the entire portfolio, with over $4.5 million in combined utility savings since 2016. Additionally, Resolute helped McLaren achieve $475,000 in utility rebate incentives for the first six months of the project and over $950,000 in rebates to date.

Energy to Care
Energy to care is a free energy benchmarking and awards program for healthcare facility management professionals who want to provide value back to their organizations through energy savings. It allows users to compare their energy reduction efforts to those of similar nearby facilities and challenge each other to greater achievements. By achieving greater energy savings, hospitals can free up resources to support the organization’s mission of providing patients with the best care.
