To reduce energy consumption at targeted and selected hotels by the application of tried and tested technologies

  • Boiler optimisation installed at 3 additional hotels and the energy strategy developed and agreed.
  • Orders have been placed for further Biomass boiler installation.

Improve targeting and monitoring software to relate consumption to weather conditions and occupancy

  • Developed and in place with access for hotels.

Introduce targeting and monitoring of kitchen energy consumption at selected hotels initially and then roll out across the group

  • Appropriate system developed and trailed and in the meantime energy awareness training was conducted with all chefs attending a workshop.


2015 Objectives

  • Ensure that QHotel standards of targeting and monitoring of energy use are implemented across all the recently acquired hotels and include all hotels in the group to the energy league table
  • Introduce energy guidelines to all recently acquired hotels
  • Implement the kitchen energy reduction system into three hotels
  • Hold energy consumption to fall at targeted hotels energy use vs sleepers
  • Implement the energy reduction strategy to as many hotels as budget will allow CHP further boiler controllers, solar panels and biomass boilers
