The EPMA Committee is a great venue for becoming more engaged with green building community and forming meaningful connections with colleagues across the industry. Our monthly meetings are open to anyone interested in becoming more involved.
Hospitals and research institutions are some of the most energy and waste intensive built environments, with unique challenges in improving their energy efficiency. This problem is especially important when considering Boston’s unique makeup, where hospitals consist of 10% of the largest buildings in the city and create 25% of GhGs. What barriers do these spaces need to overcome, and what does a ‘green’ Hospital look like? Nathan Kingery-Gallagher, former researcher at MGH and HMS, introduces the problems these buildings face and his recommendations on how to address them.
Nathan Kingery-Gallagher has spent over five years in research at Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School before beginning his career as a sustainability professional. He is looking to change the way medical and biotech institutions use energy by founding Wicked Green Research, Sustainability Solutions in Healthcare.
Please reach out to our committee chairs or attend an upcoming meeting if you have a great idea for an EP event that you would like see come to life, or if you are just interested in becoming more involved!
