|EE Visionary Awards Luncheon: Awarding the most energy-efficient campuses|
|Wednesday, May 11 : 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm|
|The 2016 EE Visionary Award recipients are three campuses, that while diverse in geographic location and purpose, are parallel in their steadfast commitment to energy efficiency. Please join us while we celebrate the following winners of the 2016 EE Visionary Awards:
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.
