Mr. Toussaint is spearheading the implementation and improvement of numerous energy efficiency and operational processes, aimed at ensuring that the Public Health Care System achieves its Mayoral mandate to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 80% by 2050. In September 2017, at the World Energy Engineering Congress in Atlanta, Mr. Toussaint was awarded the Association of Energy Engineer’s (AEE) Region I Energy Manager of the Year for 2017.
Under Mr. Toussaint’s leadership, NYC Health + Hospitals reported a reduction in energy consumption of more than 10 percent system-wide in FY 2016. Price reductions in the cost of fuel and decreased usage combined to produce $21 million in savings for the organization. An important benefit to the reduction in energy consumption is an accompanying decrease in greenhouse gas emissions.
