Note that figures above include costs based on use of natural gas, propane, and fuel oil (light and heavy), and exclude any costs that may be attributable to electricity generation and district heating. Analysis excludes transportation fuel cost effects.
  2. The above table provides cost estimates at the hospital organization level, which can include more than one location or site.
  3. Hospital names were provided by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC).
  4. There was no reported energy use and greenhouse gas emissions for the University of Ottawa Heart Institute (Ottawa), which is located within the Ottawa Hospital. It is assumed that both organizations reported combined energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.
  5. Natural gas consumption for West Nipissing General Hospital (Sturgeon Falls) and Norfolk General Hospital (Simcoe) based on the 2015 natural gas usage as the reported natural gas use for these hospitals in 2016 was zero.
  6. Note that some hospitals e.g., the Hospital for Sick Children (Toronto) and Markham-Stouffville Hospital (Markham) use relatively low volume of natural gas but high volume of district heating and electricity according to the 2016 data.
