3 A Message from the Executive Vice-President and Chief Administrative Officer I am proud to present St. Michael s Hospital s Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan. This plan brings together the best ideas on how to position St. Michael s Hospital to meet the challenge of conserving energy while managing its demand over the next five years. Building on the success of St. Michael s Hospital s Greening Strategy, this plan will ensure St. Michael s Hospital formally addresses energy and environmental issues while continuing to seek new opportunities to decrease energy consumption. St. Michael s Hospital will continue to support existing energy conservation strategies and over the next five years will focus efforts on obtaining energy savings within four targeted areas: procurement, infrastructure renewal, St. Michael s Hospital 3.0, and utilities monitoring and tracking. Specific measures are outlined in this plan and will act as enablers to ensure energy savings objectives are met. Although this plan looks to the future of St. Michael s Hospital, past successes should not go unnoticed. Within the past decade, St. Michael s Hospital successfully completed major energy conservation and demand management projects. These experiences allowed St. Michael s Hospital to identify additional energy conservation and demand management opportunities. The St. Michael s Hospital Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan will allow the hospital to apply this knowledge as we continue to be a leader in energy conservation and demand management, while maintaining our vision: creating a healthier world, through our culture of caring and discovery. Vas Georgiou Executive Vice-President Chief Administrative Officer St. Michael s Hospital 3 P a g e

4 Introduction St. Michael s Hospital (SMH) is a Catholic teaching and research hospital founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1892 to care for the sick and poor of Toronto's inner city. SMH, known as Toronto s Urban Angel, is renowned for providing exceptional patient care. As downtown Toronto s adult trauma centre, SMH is a hub for neurosurgery, complex cardiac and cardiovascular care, diabetes and osteoporosis care, minimally invasive surgery and Inner City health care of the homeless and disadvantaged. Fully affiliated with the University of Toronto, SMH provides outstanding medical education to health-care professionals in more than 23 academic disciplines. Home to the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute, made up of the Keenan Research Centre and the Li Ka Shing International Healthcare Education Centre, the hospital is among the first in the world to bring together researchers, educators and clinicians to take best practices and research discoveries to patient bedside faster. Our Vision Creating a healthier world, through our culture of caring and discovery. Our Values Human Dignity Excellence Compassion Social Responsibility Community of Service Pride of Achievement Over the past decade, SMH has formally addressed energy and environmental issues through the development of the Greening Strategy. St. Michael s Greening Strategy is committed to reducing the hospital s ecological footprint and includes three-pillars: Environmental Awareness, Waste Diversion and Energy Conservation. The SMH Energy Conservation and Demand Management (CDM) plan directly aligns with the Greening Strategy and will enable the hospital to achieve the mission of the Greening Strategy. Furthermore, the Energy CDM plan will contribute to the success of SMH s quality improvement initiative SOAPEE, Safety, Outcomes, Access, Patient, Equity and Efficiency. Greening Strategy Mission Statement St. Michael s Hospital will, through its environmental stewardship practices, become a green leader among its peers by reducing its impact on the environment through the promotion and establishment of green-friendly practices within the organization. Completed Energy Conservation Projects and Established Strategies SMH has undertaken several energy conservation projects. As part of SMH s Greening Strategy, SMH decreased its water consumption and improved its recycling programs. Examples include reconfiguration of the MRI cooling system to reuse water to cool MRI machines and the launch 4 P a g e

5 of a battery recycling program. (More details of past greening initiatives can be found in Appendix A). SMH has also completed major energy conservation projects at the 30 Bond Street - Main Hospital Campus and 61 Queen Street East SMH Family Practice Unit resulting in an 18% and 19% reduction of total utility costs respectively. All of SMH s renovation projects aim to implement best practice energy efficiencies and waste reduction. Examples include installation of motion sensor lighting and purchasing of Energy Star appliances. Lastly, SMH s Infrastructure Renewal Program evaluates all projects for greening opportunities while ensuring continued renewal of the hospital s Infrastructure. All of these efforts have resulted in numerous awards and recognitions. For example, SMH was internationally recognized as a healthcare organization and awarded the 2010 British Medical Journal award for our outstanding and effective commitment to the greater good of society. (A full list of awards can be found in Appendix C.) Greening Strategy Launched in 2008, the Greening Strategy aims to increase awareness of our environmental impact, establish costs savings through energy efficiency and better manage the disposal of waste in a socially responsible manner. The Greening Strategy is fuelled by employees of their own accord; SMH employees have submitted ideas on how to green their work environment. Successful projects include the SMH Recycling Program and participation in Toronto s Water Saver Program which included initiatives such as the launch of a battery recycling program and installing low flow toilets. Descriptions of the projects and a list of past greening initiatives can be found in Appendix A. 30 Bond Street Main Hospital Campus In 2004 SMH reviewed systems responsible for major portions of energy consumption. Eight areas were identified as opportunities to reduce energy consumption by eliminating or reducing steam and implementing single closed loop chilled water systems. The eight identified measures were successfully implemented resulting in an 18% reduction of annual utility costs. Details on the measures can be found in Appendix A. 61 Queen Street East SMH Family Practice Unit In 2010 SMH implemented an energy efficiency retrofit project for the 61 Queen Street East building with a planned savings of approximately 13% of annual utility costs. The Measurement and Verification reconciliation report for the period of January 2011 to December 2011 showed that the energy efficiency retrofit project exceeded the savings target and resulted in approximately 19% reduction of annual utility costs. Details on the measures can be found in Appendix A. 5 P a g e

6 Renovation Projects Past and future renovations within SMH are performed in accordance with the three pillars of the Greening Strategy. When possible, renovation projects will implement best practice energy efficiencies and waste reduction practices. This may include but is not limited to the use of Energy Star appliances, HVAC systems upgrades, installation of energy saving devices such as LED light fixtures, motion sensor light switches, standardization of finishes to minimize material waste, reuse of materials such as doors, locks, light fixtures, windows, and furniture and proper recycling and disposal of construction materials. Infrastructure Renewal Program The SMH Infrastructure program initiative is to renew infrastructure in order to improve the quality, functionality and efficiency of the hospital s operations. The Infrastructure program also includes audits and condition assessments to help aid in the prioritization of projects. A recent addition to the program is the review of each initiative for greening opportunities. This is done in collaboration with Healthcare Energy Leaders Ontario (HELO), an initiative to provide resources directly to hospitals to reduce operating costs, improve operational efficiencies, realize opportunities for capital renewal, and enhance overall environment of care. Systems included in the review include, but are not limited to, roofing, windows, conveying systems, plumbing, HVAC, mechanical and electrical equipment and fire protection systems. The success of these strategies and projects has positioned SMH as a leader in energy conservation among Figure 1: Energy Use Intensity per Square Foot of Selected Hospitals our peers across Ontario. As shown in Figure 1, SMH ranks third among the top twelve largest hospitals 1 with regards to energy use intensity. Conversely, Figure 2 further supports SMH s leadership in energy conservation. A comparison of SMH to smaller hospitals in the province shows SMH uses 1 Hospitals were only ranked if they operated 168hrs/week; facilities were used for hospital purposes; Acute/Chronic hospital; size of the hospital is greater than 500,000 square feet. 6 P a g e

7 relatively low amounts of energy per square foot 2. A comparison of SMH s steam and electrical consumption s present state to the past five years can be found in Appendix B. Planned Energy Conservation Projects and Strategies SMH plans to continue supporting established strategies for Infrastructure Renewal, Renovation projects and Greening initiatives as part of our organizational commitment to energy conservation in day-today operations and planning. As part of the SMH Energy CDM plan the following new initiatives will be undertaken. St. Michael s 3.0 Over the next 6 years, SMH is embarking on a Figure 2: SMH Energy Intensity per Square Foot Compared to its Peers series of projects to transform patient care at the hospital. St. Michael s 3.0 includes the construction of a new 17- storey patient care tower (PCT), a renovated Emergency Department, significant upgrades to improve the existing campus, and a re-constructed Shuter wing. St. Michael s 3.0 enables SMH to implement new energy efficient measures. At a minimum, the new PCT will achieve LEED Silver certification and reduce total electricity and natural gas consumption by approximately 24% 3. Infrastructure Renewal SMH will ensure all infrastructure renewal projects are evaluated for greening opportunities. This will include application for incentives as well as evaluating business cases for increased capital investment in order to achieve energy savings. 2 Data retrieved from the 2011 Broader Public Sector energy consumption data - Ministry of Energy. 3 Energy consumption and savings predictions are based on assumptions about occupancy, operations and weather as compared to a referenced model. 7 P a g e

8 Infrastructure Renewal Greening Procurement SMH will develop and implement policies to ensure procurement of capital equipment, supplies and services will be evaluated for greening opportunities. Specifically, SMH will manage its supply chain and improve its product lifecycle management to reduce its carbon footprint while ensuring the interests of the SMH Energy CDM plan are maintained. LKSKI Energy Measures SMH will pursue the retro commissioning of the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute building which opened in After 2 years of operation several energy saving opportunities have been identified through Energy Audits. Energy conservation measures that will be implemented as part of the project include retro commissioning of building systems and lighting and ventilation retrofits. Utilities Review Program SMH s Utility Review Program will monitor and track utility consumption based on monthly steam and electricity data. The utility consumption will be analyzed on an annual basis by the SMH Engineering Department. Quarterly reports will be created and include information on the energy consumed and the associated costs for the given time period, and year-to-date. Comparisons will also be made not only to energy baselines that have been established internally, but also to comparisons to previous period. Plan Measures Table 1 outlines the measures that have been developed for each of the planned strategies. Estimated costs savings cannot be determined at this time as the details and scope of each measure has not been determined. When feasible, SMH will update this plan with total estimated costs savings.

The Utilities Review Program will also consist of quarterly reports. 11 P a g e

12 Monitoring and Evaluation SMH will utilize the Utilities Review Program to monitor energy consumption and evaluate the success of this plan. Annual results will be compared to our peers and benchmarked against the 2011 benchmarked energy consumption data that was created by the Ministry of Energy. Furthermore, SMH will continue to compare annual utilities consumption to previous year s data. Measures and timelines may be adjusted depending on the results of these evaluations. This includes the addition of new measures where possible. Conclusion and Next Steps The success of past energy conservation projects and greening initiatives has positioned SMH as a leader in energy conservation amongst its peers across Ontario. The SMH Energy CDM plan outlines measures within four areas; procurement, infrastructure renewal, St. Michael s Hospital 3.0, and utilities monitoring and tracking The next steps in implementing this Energy CDM plan is to engage all appropriate stakeholders to ensure the measures outlined in Table 1 are successfully executed. SMH s Energy CDM plan, in collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of Energy, will further strengthen SMH s commitments to reduce its ecological footprint. As SMH continues to be a leader in health care innovation, this plan will also enable SMH to be a leader in energy conservation and demand management. 12 P a g e
