Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital

700-bed teaching hospital and Level 1 trauma center

Mission: Provide quality patient care as efficiently as possible

This hospital could not control utility rates, but it realized it could control its energy use. Trane identified and implemented over 25 energy conservation measures (ECMs) to reduce energy use and carbon footprint, lower costs for patients and provide a positive ROI. The ECMs delivered $275,000 in energy cost savings during the first year, and continue to deliver savings today. What's more, CO2 has been reduced by more than 2,200 tons and carbon emissions have declined by nearly 550,000 kg CO2/Kwh.
