There is a direct relationship between comfort levels of patrons and hotel and resort running cost. This translates into energy consumption accounting for up to 6% of total running costs of these establishments. Furthermore, the bulk of used energy is produced by gas, coal and petroleum products, which contribute to increased CO2 emissions.
A bevy of quick fixes exist, which include adjusting laundry temperatures, covering heated water masses after hours, reducing hallway and back office energy consumption and staggering meal preparation times. These efforts are labor intensive, often do not yield consistent, measurable results and may have a negative effect on quality of service delivery.
