Healthcare facilities play a pivotal role in ensuring patients receive reliable care, much like emergency rooms prepare for critical situations. Just as the ER needs to be ready for emergencies, hospital facilities and engineering staff must have energy emergency preparedness plans and contingencies in place to ensure uninterrupted power supply. In a world where power disruptions can be caused by storms or grid overload, having an action plan to keep the lights on is imperative.
Tailored Energy Solutions:
Every healthcare facility is unique in its energy usage patterns, and at Freedom Energy Logistics, we understand that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to energy management. Our mission is to identify the programs and services that best suit your specific needs and goals. We recognize three main priorities in energy management: energy efficiency, energy procurement, and renewables.
If you’re considering energy efficiency efforts, we recommend starting with an energy audit conducted by a licensed contractor. This audit can pinpoint areas of inefficiency, allowing you to establish a budget, develop a strategy, and create a timeline for energy-saving projects. Even small upgrades to lighting or HVAC systems can yield long-term energy savings and provide an immediate return on investment.
Strategic Energy Management:
Developing an energy management strategy with your team, aligned with your goals, budget, and timeline, is crucial for success. When it comes to energy procurement, we assess the cost of the commodity you’re paying for. Are you using the local utility, default rates, or a third-party supplier? We analyze contracts, products, prices, and terms to recommend the most beneficial options based on current market conditions and your objectives.
Do you have sustainability goals? Exploring green energy options, such as community solar or physical solar installations if space permits, is a great starting point. For more advanced sustainability solutions, we can discuss options like battery storage, fuel cells, or co-generation based on your budget and needs.
Creating a Resilient Future:
Whether you’re embarking on your energy efficiency and sustainability journey or seeking advanced technologies, Freedom Energy Logistics can help tailor an energy management strategy to your specific requirements. The overarching goal is to reduce energy consumption and pave the way for a more resilient and sustainable future.
