Clarion Hotel

The Clarion Hotel used EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics™ (formerly Wattics) to analyze the operational hours of air handling units to determine the optimal unit time schedules and reduced energy use by almost 30%.

The Background

The Clarion Hotel Sligo (now Clayton Hotel Sligo) is a 4-star hotel located within walking distance from the bustling town of Sligo, Ireland. With rooms to suit every guests need, the hotel has 74 superior bedrooms and 89 suites which provide relaxing and welcoming accommodations. The hotel also offers excellent leisure and conference facilities catering to up to 600 delegates.

In today’s competitive hospitality sector, hotels are increasingly ‘green aware’ and challenged by rising energy costs. Hotel owners and operators recognize that reducing their carbon footprint resonates with customers and reduces energy spend, which can greatly improve investment in facilities that can enhance their guest experience.

Controlling and reducing energy consumption has become essential for many hotel maintenance and facility managers.

The Answer

EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics provided an energy management solution within the hotel’s main electricity distribution center which connected to electricity circuits feeding all major electricity distribution boards and Motor Control Centers. The solution allowed electricity consumption monitoring for all the main areas throughout the hotel, including the Bedrooms, Restaurant Kitchen, Leisure Centre, and HVAC equipment. The Local Area Network within the hotel was utilized to send the monitored energy data from two meters to the online Wattics Dashboard.

The EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics solution enabled the facility manager to quickly identify significant energy consumers within the hotel and view energy use online for different areas in real-time.

The facility manager also used the unique ‘Events Tracker’ feature in the EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics dashboard to track the cost-benefit of saving actions for a Motor Control Centre powering HVAC equipment.

The Results

Utilizing the on-site building management system, the hotel facility manager could analyze the operational hours of air handling units, determine the optimal unit time schedules to closely match the building operation, and use the EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics dashboard to check the new energy use under the optimal time schedules.

The Clarion Hotel reduced the energy use of its air handling units by almost 30%, and dashboard was utilized to assess the before-and-after picture of this energy conservation measure.

Other Benefits

  • Real-time visibility on energy use, through automatic text or email alerts.
  • Enter any measured value to create Energy Performance Indicators to track hotel performance.
  • Identification of wastage and energy-saving opportunities through tailored reports, including the EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics WISE Report or “Wastage Identification Saving Energy” Report.
