ASHE is asking all healthcare facilities to complete its 2016 Energy and Water Survey, which will help update Energy Star scoring models, in addition to identifying energy and water use trends. The data will be anonymously shared with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency with the goals of:
- Updating the Energy Star 1-100 score models for both General Medical & Surgical Hospitals and Medical Office Buildings
- Expanding to new Energy Star 1-100 score models for other health care space types
- Evaluating the potential to develop a 1-100 score for water efficiency
All healthcare organizations are encouraged to participate. A large response rate is critical because a large amount of data is needed to update the Energy Star scoring models. To help encourage participation, ASHE will randomly select one survey participant from each ASHE region to win a $250 Amazon gift card.*
The deadline to complete submissions is Nov. 18.

The success of this effort will largely depend on the response rate, so ASHE encourages participants to set aside time to complete the survey.
ASHE held a webinar in September to explain the survey and answer frequently asked questions. A recording of that webinar is available here.
For questions and/or to submit completed surveys, contact ASHEenergy@aha.org.
