According to figures from the Carbon Trust, lighting makes up 25% of the electricity use in a Hospitality business.
As well as converting your lighting to LED consider using motion sensors in low use areas such as corridors in hotel, cellars, store cupboards and toilets. A PIR (passive infrared) sensor turns lights on and off to ensure that the lighting is only on when someone is in that area.
Remember business can borrow from the success of Andy Murray and our other sports stars this year, they use something called “the aggregation of marginal gains”. This means that they are looking at ways of making tiny improvements to everything they do rather than trying to find one huge gain.
Any small gain you make on any of your costs, goes straight on to your bottom line.
