Microgrid Strategies for Hospitals and Health Care Organizations
Strategies to Continue Operating During Power Disruptions and Improve Air Quality

Thursday, August 20
1 - 2 p.m. Eastern; noon - 1 p.m. Central; 10 - 11 a.m. Pacific 

The nature of today’s hospitals — 24-hour services provided by teams of specialized professionals, supported by an expanding use of technology — creates an extraordinary demand for energy.

Now, as the health care field is tackling the most challenging pandemic of our lifetime, resiliency in healthcare energy systems is getting even more critical. Hurricanes, storms and wildfires are unavoidable, but when coupled with viral threats such as COVID-19, reliance on the central grid alone is no longer an option.

This webinar will consider a strategic focus on how health care systems can prepare themselves for resiliency under pandemic situations. Our speakers will address energy procurement strategies, onsite energy generation technology, how to reduce energy costs,  mitigate revenue loss from canceled procedures, and doing all this while deploying clean energy solutions that improve air quality by eliminating smog-forming pollution and particulate matter.

Join our team of experts as they explore the complex, sector-wide challenges health care systems face as a result of its new-reality, ever-changing landscape and how those challenges elevate the importance of choice when it comes to power.

Attendees Will Learn:

  • How to reduce energy costs and mitigate revenue loss from canceled procedures.
  • How to create energy security during pandemics, natural disasters and planned and unplanned outages.
  • How to implement sustainable energy sources, without emitting NOx, Sox and particulate matter and improving local air quality for sensitive patient populations.
