Hospitals and healthcare facilities are major users of energy and water resources. Though energy costs represent a significant percentage of operational costs, regulatory requirements such as airflow management standards, critical patient needs, and staffing requirements make it difficult for hospital executives to implement energy upgrades in these facilities. Willdan Energy Solutions has extensive experience developing flexible, lasting frameworks that offer long-term energy programs for hospitals and healthcare buildings without major operational disruptions or costs.
