GGHH has recently launched the brand new Energy Guidance Document for its members. This helps hospital staff make the necessary changes to reduce their energy consumption and energy-related fossil fuel emissions by identifying specific actions that healthcare facilities can take. The full document is only available for GGHH members. You can also browse through a number of energy-related success stories for inspiration on the GGHH website.
If you are looking for further inspiration from Europe, there are several on-going and completed European projects that can provide information, evidence and guidance on this subject:
- Intelligent Energy Europe
- European Health Property Network (EuHPN)
- Re-Co Project
