2015 Winner of the Kilowatt Cup - Baptist Health Headquarters
The 2015 Kilowatt Cup was awarded to Baptist Health for their work to lower energy use at their headquarters on Eastpoint Parkway. Building managers of the Baptist Health Headquarters office building began targeting operational efficiency in mid-2015. In that time, the leadership implemented a comprehensive program to monitor its energy usage index and cost per square foot. Over 5000 data points are collected every 15 minutes and analyzed using advanced algorithms to identify areas of poor performance and/or risk. This continuous commissioning and improvement program has helped reduce the facility's energy consumption in half in the second part of 2015 – all while improving the environmental conditions considerably. Through these efforts, in seven months, Baptist Health saved close to $40,000. The LEA congratulates and thanks Baptist Health and its facility managers for their leadership.
