On May 11, EE Global 2016 will kick off on a celebratory note with the EE Visionary Awards Luncheon, honoring energy-efficient campuses around the world. Read more about our 2016 EE Visionary award winners below:
Chang Gung Memorial Hospital: Taoyuan City, Taiwan
The new cancer treatment center in the Chang Gung Memorial Hospital boasts a LEED-HC Platinum certification, making it the first hospital in Asia to obtain these credentials. The cancer treatment building is 42% more energy efficient than standard buildings and was constructed in partnership with Siemens Taiwan.
Stanford University: Stanford, California
The Stanford Energy Systems Innovation (SESI) project is a multi-year, multi-phase project that is transforming the energy systems across the campus. As part of this project, Stanford completed a brand new, state-of-the-art Central Energy Facility in 2015. The SESI project will effectively transform the university energy supply from 100% fossil-fuel based combined heat and power system to a grid-sourced electricity system with more efficient electric heat recovery.
UN City: Copenhagen, Denmark
The 2000 UN Millennium Summit of World Leaders declaration highlighted the need for a more efficient and coherent United Nations. The result was UN City, a LEED certified campus housing all UN agencies. UN City was awarded the European Commission’s Green Building Award for New Buildings after cutting its predicted energy consumption by 55%, earning the most energy efficient rating according to the Danish building code.
