Montreal, Quebec, Canada Hospital built in 1934
The JGH was founded in 1934 and is located in the Côte-des-neiges neighbourhood in Montreal. The building comprises ten wing hosting different disciplines such as cancerology, radiology, psychiatry, etc. Every year, the JGH cures over 300 000 patients, 67 000 emergencies, and the McGill University teaching team also receives 23 000 patients.
Energy Efficiency Measures
Connection of the two main chilled water networks
Connection of some independent networks to the merged network
Modification of the networks configuration
Modification of the main chilled water networks pumping system
Modification of the Pavilion E cooling tower networks pumping system
Identified measures should result in energy savings representing about CAN $85 000 of the hospital total yearly energy bills. Regarding CO2 emissions, as savings were mainly achieved through hydro-electricity consumption reduction and that hydro-electricity is already a clean energy and a low carbon producer, CO2 emissions reduction is not very significant.
