Challenge

A large healthcare company needed help to identify and demonstrate the benefits of a portfolio-wide sustainability program, so they reached out to JLL to develop a pilot.

Approach

Our energy auditors helped the client identify four campus buildings comprising 406,000 square feet of office, call center and data room space, and then perform ASHRAE Level II energy audits. The auditors were able to calculate a system-by-system breakdown of the client’s $1 million annual energy spend.

Using the results from the analysis, we developed a focused list of low low-and no no-cost energy conservation measures, as well as, identified more than 20 energy conservation opportunities (calculated to reduce energy consumption by over 18% per year) for capital investment. We also provided estimates for project costs, annual energy cost savings and ROI figures. The client used this data to build a business case and demonstrate the economic and environmental benefit of energy and sustainability initiatives.

Results

In the end, the client received the funding to audit the rest of their portfolio, resulting in annual cost savings of $162,000 with a payback period of less than three years and $44,000 in potential utility incentives.

Conclusion

Starting small and using a pilot can lead to big opportunities that create value for your organization.
