Reducing Energy Consumption Sustainably

By undertaking an energy improvement project in four of its buildings, the Lanaudière Integrated Health and Social Services Centre in Quebec sought to reduce its energy consumption. Its management also wanted to their approach to energy reduction to focus on sustainable development and environmental stewardship.

To reduce the buildings’ energy consumption, it was necessary to reduce demand, reuse as much energy as possible, increase production efficiency, and limit heat loss. Several innovative measures – including aerothermal heat pumps, heat recovery from ventilation, and optimization of the steam network – will reduce energy consumption by 40%.

By minimizing its dependence on natural gas, the Centre will avoid 2,880 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year, the equivalent of taking 1,280 cars off the road. A personalized training program for operators, modern equipment, and a centralized building management system will ensure optimal operations and better comfort for occupants.
