This Application Note aims at describing the use of energy and the potential energy savings in the hotel sector, on the basis of theory and practical case studies. Hotels and restaurants represent some 9% of total energy consumption in the utility buildings sector. Utility buildings are offices, shops, hotels, restaurants, educational establishments and care institutions.
Before going into detail on the energy consumption of a hotel, one needs to have a view on the utility sector, the part hotels play in the sector, the number of hotels in Europe and the different types of hotels. This is the first part of the Application Note, followed by a description of the main energy uses and some case studies on energy efficiency improvements.
