Montefiore Medical Center: Energy performance

Energy Performance
Cumulative (vs. Baseline)7%
Annual (2018)1%

Better Buildings Challenge Partners strive to decrease portfolio-wide source energy use intensity (EUI) and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline. Montefiore's portfolio consists of more than 12 properties and `5 million square feet. Montefiore has improved energy performance by 7% from a 2013 baseline, making progress towards a goal of 20% by 2023.  Energy savings have been achieved by implementing a campus-wide window replacement at our Wakefield campus, as well as a chiller replacement. LED lighting upgrades are ongoing across all campuses, as is education on behavioral changes through presentations at leadership meetings and staff meetings.


Looking at the percent improvement in energy performance across all properties can provide insight into how an organization is saving energy. Montefiore has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 15% at 3 of its properties. There are 3 properties that have experienced an increase in Source EUI.  These properties have been targeted for future energy efficiency improvements.


Property-level energy performance metrics, including EUI and percent improvement to date, are critical to track progress over time and identify opportunities for additional energy savings. Montefiore's portfolio consists of properties with a wide range of baseline EUI values, most of which are from 100 to 1,000 kBtu/sq. ft. The majority of properties have shown energy improvement since 2013. The properties located near or below the 0% axis may present good opportunities for further savings.
