The International Federation of Healthcare Engineering, with support from the Association of Medical Facility Professionals and Mazzetti, has launched the Global Healthcare Energy Awards. The awards aim to encourage healthcare facilities around the world to commit to a reduction in energy use that will ultimately lessen the entire global health system’s intensive carbon footprint, all through a simple energy-tracking process.
Any healthcare facility with a 5% or greater energy reduction, measured from 2019 as the energy usage baseline and 2021 as the performance year, will be eligible for recognition as a Global Healthcare Energy Winner. “Best in Country” winners and the “Best in World” winner will be recognized during IFHE’s Annual Congress Sept. 15-22, 2022, in Toronto, Canada.
The nomination process is simple. Upon creating a free account at https://energyapp.mazzetti.com/IFHE, healthcare facility management professionals can enter monthly energy data either manually, by uploading a spreadsheet or by connecting through the Energy Star Portfolio Manager. Once data is uploaded, organizations can easily track their performance online or through a mobile app and instantly become eligible to earn recognition through IFHE for energy improvements.
