Dallas Market Hall, Dallas TX – October 11, 2017 – Session 7 – Children’s Health, located in Dallas, is a leading healthcare system focused on the healthiness of children. Recently, Children’s began to acquire renewable energy as a portion of their overall electricity supply at all of their facilities in North Texas. At this time, as ranked by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Children’s is the largest purchaser of renewable energy of any pediatrician hospital in the United States. The speaker(s) will describe how renewable energy, as a key part of their overall energy management strategy, was identified and competitively sourced, leading to one of the largest acquisitions of renewable energy by a healthcare institution. This includes renewable energy alternatives assessed (e.g. solar, wind, fuel cell, landfill gas), sourcing, economics, and structuring of the transaction. Finally, the speakers will discuss the environmental impact of the renewable energy acquisition along with comparative rankings as published by the EPA.
