Needle at Zero! Maniwaki Hospital’s Steam System Completely Eliminated

For the first time, a hospital in Quebec was able to completely forgo its costly steam system, a new achievement for Ecosystem’s engineers. When improving energy efficiency in health care environments, we always set our sights high when scaling down steam systems, though it’s rarely possible to reach this 100% ideal. At the hospital in Maniwaki, the circumstances were in our favor: the architecture, budget, and technical potential were all aligned to make this conversion possible.

With energy use anticipated to drop by 39%, this total steam-to-hot-water conversion and complementary energy efficiency measures are set to reduce the energy bill by 41% while significantly reducing the hospital’s ecological footprint.
