Overview of Case Study
Searching for hidden treasure is fun, and you don’t need a shovel or metal detector to do it! In the past year, four hospitals have participated in ENERGY STAR Treasure Hunts, events that uncover energy-saving opportunities throughout a facility.
The most recent event was held at Northwest Hospital & Medical Center in Seattle in July. The hunt was part of an overall energy training session held after the ASHE Annual Meeting.
“ENERGY STAR Treasure Hunts are a great way for hospitals to uncover money-saving
opportunities,” according to Justin Carron, global segment director for Eaton, which
sponsored the Treasure Hunt training session. “And they help develop an overall culture of
energy conservation in the facility.”
