Boston Medical Center, a 496-bed academic medical center located in Boston’s historic South End, is using Veolia’s sustainable “Green Steam” to meet its thermal energy needs, while avoiding an estimated 8,500 tons of carbon emissions annually. As a testament to the medical center’s focus on exceptional patient care and environmental sustainability, BMC recently entered into a 20-year thermal energy agreement with Veolia.

As the largest 24-hour Level I trauma center in New England, Boston Medical Center (BMC) provides emergency, primary care and specialty services to all age groups, from infants and children to adults. For over a quarter century, Veolia has served BMC with steam to meet the majority of the hospital’s heating, hot water, humidification, sterilization and process needs. With Veolia’s acquisition of Kendall Cogeneration Station and the installation of an additional steam pipeline connecting Cambridge and Boston, steam supplied to BMC consists of recycled “Green Steam” that is produced as a byproduct of electricity generation.

“As a medical campus treating a diverse range of healthcare needs, it’s absolutely vital for Boston Medical Center to maintain continuous and consistent heating, sterilization and comfort levels,” said Bob Biggio, the hospital’s Vice President of Facilities and Support Services. “After careful analysis of all of our potential options, it became clear that with Veolia’s recent investments to create a more sustainable district energy system, executing a new “Green Steam” contract with Veolia would best support our sustainability goal of a 50 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020.”

As part of this ongoing partnership, Veolia will also support BMC’s thermal energy requirements for the hospital’s multi-year campus redesign. In order to consolidate its services, increase campus efficiencies, reduce operating costs and further lower its carbon footprint, BMC is currently advancing a $300 million redesign of 500,000 square feet of clinical and office space. As the hospital’s energy partner, Veolia will provide cogenerated “Green Steam” and metering installations in support of the development, while ensuring continuity of steam service for the existing hospital space.

“We are excited to continue this sustainable partnership with Boston Medical Center a national healthcare leader in providing urgent and clinical care,” said John Gibson, president and COO of Veolia North America’s Municipal & Commercial business. “By taking advantage of Veolia’s integrated ‘Green Steam’ network to meet its current and future thermal energy needs, the medical center is demonstrating its environmental leadership.”

“Green Steam,” or thermal energy, is produced using advanced Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technology at Kendall Cogeneration Station the primary generating facility of Veolia’s Boston-Cambridge district energy system. By recapturing thermal energy that would otherwise be wasted, Veolia’s highly efficient CHP operations are significantly reducing the region’s overall carbon footprint. As one of Veolia’s largest customers in Boston, BMC’s use of “Green Steam” avoids an estimated 8,500 tons of carbon emissions annually the equivalent of removing 1,700 cars from the road. To further advance the hospital’s sustainability goals, Veolia’s energy consulting business is also providing utility data management and billing services using EMsys, Veolia’s real-time energy data monitoring software. By closely monitoring its energy use, BMC is better able to understand utility costs across its campus and advance efficiency improvements to reduce energy use.
