Two of Ecosystem’s NYC-based engineers are going to be speaking at the World Energy Engineering Congress (WEEC) in Atlanta this September. The largest energy conference and technology expo in the US for business, industrial, and institutional energy users, WEEC brings together experts focused on energy efficiency, optimization, and sustainability.
Hospital building managers face multiple challenges and priorities: aging equipment, older buildings, patient comfort requirements, and strict hospital standards. Not only do hospitals run 24/7, but demand is growing due to an aging population. A hospital’s operational challenges are interrelated, and solutions to overcome them should be comprehensive: one project, several benefits.
The County of Bruce has selected Ecosystem as the winning bidder to provide integrated energy performance contracting (IEPC) services in four of the County’s buildings. The $3.4 million project will generate guaranteed annual energy savings of $273,288 and is expected to receive $251,800 in incentives. The four buildings, covering an area of 278,500 square feet, are:
- The Administration Building at 30 Park St., Walkerton, ON
- Brucelea Haven Long Term Care Home at 41 McGivern St., Walkerton, ON
- Gateway Haven Long Term Care Home at 671 Frank St., Wiarton, ON
- The Museum & Cultural Centre at 33 Victoria St. N., Southhampton, ON
April 22, 2016 – Durham Region – A new 1.6MW combined heat and power (CHP) plant at Lakeridge Health Oshawa will power 42% of Lakeridge Health Oshawa’s electrical needs.
The CHP plant is fueled by natural gas for a cleaner, more efficient production of electricity. Heat from the process also heats the hospital.
“Today is an important day — for our patients and for the environment,” said Tom McHugh, Lakeridge Health Interim President and CEO. “The power we generate will take the equivalent of almost 1,200 homes off the grid and the money saved will be put back into direct patient care.”
