What are the primary determinants of energy use in hospitals, and what current and innovative strategies can be implemented to minimize energy use? Mohit Mehta, Director of Sustainable Design at M-E Engineers, Inc., will talk  about how healthcare facilities use energy, and what these energy intensive facilities can do to keep up with the requirements of the widely accepted Architecture 2030 Challenge.  Energy interactions between building subsystems, such as envelope, lighting and HVAC, will be covered, addressing whole-building energy use reduction.  Mohit will share useful information on where the healthcare industry is headed, in terms of sustainability, and how to achieve reasonable energy use index (EUI) goals/targets for healthcare facilities.

This month's program will be held on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 from 4:30pm -6:30pm at the offices of Cannon Design, 1901 Avenue of the Stars, Suite 175, Los Angeles CA 90067

Participants will earn 1 CEU/HSW Hour for attending this seminar.
 
Learning objectives:
 
1. How and where hospitals use energy?
2. What are the primary determinants of hospital energy use?
3. What are the strategies for reducing energy use?
4. How these reduction targets align with Architecture 2030 Challenge and the AIA 2030 Commitment.
