  • Published: July 21, 2020
  • Webinar Duration: 45 Minutes

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 healthcare 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 healthcare systems can prepare themselves for resiliency under pandemic situations. Attendees will learn:

  • Successful energy procurement strategies
  • Pros and cons of various onsite energy generation technologies
  • Energy cost reduction strategies
  • How to mitigate revenue loss from canceled procedures

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