Description of the project
Content (100 words)
Hotel Energy Solutions brings together key organisations in the fields of tourism and energy technologies. The hotel industry is among the
most energy-intensive sectors of the tourism industry, while being an important source of employment. Europe has approximately 5.45 million
hotel rooms of which SMEs account around 90%. Hotel Energy solutions focuses on action to foster energy efficiency and the rational use of
energy resources in the accomodation sector.

The Hotel Energy Solutions Project will undertake three key functions:
Develop a toolkit and supporting materials to assist SME hotels to plan for and invest in energy efficiency (EE) and renewable
energy (RE) technologies.
Test the toolkit in hotels – and use the lessons learned to improve the tools.
Disseminate and promote the toolkit to hotels – highlighting practical solutions for increased use of energy efficiency (EE) and
renewable energy (RE) technologies in SME hotels across the European Union, alongside tools enabling SME hotels to benchmark
their energy performance and prioritize the most cost effective investments for improving their energy performance.
Objectives& Measurable Goals
Assess current practices and needs for EE and the use of RE
Identify key EE and RE technologies, equipment, manufacturers and suppliers in order to facilitate the integration of EET and RET in
the European hotel sector
Sensitize EE/RE manufacturers and suppliers of the opportunities of SMEs hotels
Develop a toolkit on EE and RE to provide the most adapted, practical and cost-effective solutions that will improve SMEs hotel
Increase energy efficiency of 100 pilot hotels in 4 destination type, while running pilot projects to test the toolkit and materials
Promote and disseminate widely HES outputs
Key Outcomes (with indicators)
Development of an online energy toolkit that enables SME hotels to assess their current energy use and carbon footprint.
in four pilot destinations with at least 100 SME hotels trained in the use of the toolkit prior to its formal launch to
the European tourism community.
