Central Vermont Medical Center (CVMC) is making significant progress to reducing its energy consumption. Across the hospital, energy consumption has been reduced without sacrificing patient or employee comfort, thanks to the installation of a unique heat recovery system and ongoing improvements to the building automation control system.
Overall, the success at CVMC is due to the commitment of hospital executives, department staff, and partners Liebert Engineering Inc., Efficiency Vermont, and Control Technologies. Liebert Engineering is a Vermont-based firm that audited the hospital and designed its new system. Efficiency Vermont is a ratepayer-funded energy efficiency utility that provides technical assistance, rebates, and other financial incentives to help Vermont businesses and homes reduce their energy costs with energy-efficient equipment, lighting, and approaches to construction and major renovation. Control Technologies is a systems integrator located in Williston, Vt., that provides a digital web-based building automation controls system.
