Over the past 12 months, we have worked closely with a wide range of hotels across the country and in Ireland to ensure they are saving energy, saving water, cutting bills and cutting carbon footprint.

Every business in the hospitality sector can benefit and our clients include B&Bs, guesthouses and independent hotels, as well as the big hotel brands.

The hotel energy savings and water savings are substantial, delivering hundreds of thousands of pounds in reduced utility bills. Reduced energy and water use is also very important in helping hotel groups meet their carbon reduction commitments.

And the great thing is that the products and solutions we provide have no negative impact on guest satisfaction – and the return on investment is very quick. The hotel then goes on saving year after year.

How do hotels of all sizes, B&Bs and guesthouses save energy and save water, cut bills and cut carbon?

Expert advice, planning and project management for larger-scale works are crucial. We ensure all energy saving and water saving projects go to plan and maximise savings through our Field Services Team. We manage the big-project process from end-to-end, from surveys to planning, installation and monitoring.

We work with hotels in three key areas:

  • Lighting
  • Water
  • Heating

Each of these areas are ripe for change through LED lighting retrofits and smart lighting controls, installation of eco showers, eco taps and tap aerators, and intelligent heat pump controls.
LED lighting cuts bills

We fully managed a lighting retrofit across the Park Inn and Radisson Blu hotels in the UK and Ireland, with savings of £250K a year by installing LED tubes, panels and exterior lighting.

The LED retrofit is also helping the hotels meet Carlson Rezidor group’s environmental commitment through its global Think Planet initiative.

Water efficiency saves £100K

Puma Hotels Collection saved £100K in eight months on a spend of £65K by replacing existing shower heads with EcoSmart shower heads and by installing low cost tap aerators.

Our UK Field Services team managed the water-saving strategy from end-to-end, from surveys to planning, installation and monitoring. Here’s the full case study.

The hotel group is going to make further massive savings in energy consumption with rapid return on investment across their UK properties with our lighting and heating solutions.

After the first stage, Paul Nisbett, Puma Hotels’ Collection Financial and Commercial Director, advised: “The most satisfying part of our sustainability partnership with SaveMoneyCutCarbon is the fact that after we recoup our investment, we will continue to save money month on month.”

And Martin Kinnaird, Puma Hotels’ Collection’s Group Technical Services Manager said: “The fact that SaveMoneyCutCarbon not only fulfilled their commitment to delivering the end-to-end solution we required but also went further by sourcing bespoke fittings for some our hotels was very impressive. We will continue to work with them in other sustainability projects over the next year.”

Mike Jourdain, Head of Property and Development for Puma Hotels’ Collection, comments: “I had heard of SaveMoneyCutCarbon’s excellent reputation for going the extra mile in delivering end-to-end solutions through their Field Services team, which is why I chose them to partner with us on this complex project. The savings delivered have exceeded our expectations and SaveMoneyCutCarbon not only met our exacting deadlines but also used their knowledge and experience to ensure that the whole process ran smoothly.”

Smart controls cut bills

Radisson Blu Hotel Cardiff wanted to find the best HVAC management solution and one that had no adverse impact on guest satisfaction.

Heating, cooling and ventilation (HVAC) is the biggest energy drain in any commercial building but especially in the 24/7 operations of the hotel environment.

The hotel saved up to 45% energy by installing our GEM wireless system to control heating, ventilation and air conditioning when guests leave the room.

Jens Hallman, Radisson Blu Cardiff general manager says: “We are not energy experts, so it was essential to recruit expertise for this. One of the advantages of this solution is that does not require any guest involvement and is completely automatic.”

Martin Perkins, Radisson Blu Cardiff financial controller advises: “The project is a no-brainer – we need to save on consumption to help protect the bottom line against the ever-increasing energy prices and new levies being introduced. To do this with minimum guest disturbance and to have a payback which owners cannot argue with is fantastic and it means this project ticks all boxes.”

These hotels have added value by cutting consumption, cutting bills and cutting carbon – and they highlight how every property can build growth through energy and water efficiencies this year.

The SaveMoneyCutCarbon solution brings together best products, knowledge and expertise to deliver measurable results and rapid return on investment.
