SEA REM Identifites Energy Savings Opportunities at Nation’s First Carbon-Neutral Hospital

The National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif., is getting a replacement hospital that will improve patient care and incorporate energy savings measures that will save millions of dollars in energy costs.

A Resource Efficiency Manager working under contract with the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, was part of the design
and energy planning team that helped identify seven major conservation measures that will decrease energy use by 33.2 percent. The design team, led by the Los Angeles and Sacramento districts, Corps of Engineers, included Huntsville Center’s Medical Center of Expertise and Mobile District as well, and earned an Honor Award for Conceptual Design from the 2012 Chief of Engineers Awards of Excellence Program.
