Or how to reduce energy usage without compromising guest comfort.
Energy efficiency is now well understood as a sound business practice – after all, energy represents the single fastest-growing operating cost in the hospitality industry, accounting for between 3% and 6% of total running costs. There are also increasing benefits in hotels capitalizing on their efficiency efforts to build a reputation as a green hotel. But the challenge for hotels today is to reconcile commercial needs – such as creating ever more unique guest experiences – with environmental considerations.
Having advised some of the largest hospitality players in the world on where they are operating inefficiently or using more energy than necessary, Siemens has long been a trusted partner for boutique hotels and global chains and resorts alike in their sustainability efforts. We know where energy is used in hotels, and how it can be curbed. For example, optimized heating, ventilation and air-conditioning alone can lower energy consumption by more than 40% - without guest satisfaction suffering.
We also know that each hotel has varying sustainability goals, budgets, and resources. Most importantly, we know not just what makes a hotel green, but also how you can make a big difference with seemingly small incremental steps.
What makes us qualified to talk ”green” with you?
Quite simply, beyond an extensive know-how going from energy-efficient buildings technologies to green IT, we take sustainability seriously ourselves. Among the top ranking companies in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index over the past 11 years, we were named „best-in-class“ in our category in 2010.
So here are some of the solutions we offer to help you measure, control and optimize your energy consumption – solutions that will deliver immediate results, whether you are looking to upgrade or involved in a new project.
