The consumption of energy in hotels accounts for between 3% and 6% of total operating costs, which is produced by gas, coal and petroleum products. Hence energy conservation can reduce running/operational cost in a huge way and also contribute to decreasing the CO2 emissions. Implementation of actions to reduce emissions and realize financial benefits will provide the hotels with increased revenue and a competitive advantage. One of the ways to reduce emission is by taking advantages of solar thermal concentrator for hotel energy consumed applications through various medium (Hot water & steam) such as:
- Solar water heating systems for bathing, washing, cleaning, and pre-boiler applications.
- Solar steam generating systems for cooking, laundry, and air conditioning.
Installing a solar energy system at hotels will not only reduce their operational costs, but also appeal to the conscious consumer of current market.
