Current scenario • Use of CNG instead of LPG: leads to reduction of pollution, Recycled Wood/Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF): saves trees • Solar Panel for hot water: alternative, renewable energy. Wind power: alternative, renewable energy. Being implemented in a phased manner at hotels in Chennai followed by Aurangabad and Pune. • Auto Time Management (for lighting, air-conditioning and ventilation fans) through timers and motion sensors: helps conserve energy The above points prove that the hotel is already implementing a lot of energy efficient practices. But since we have adopted the INCREMENTAL approach, we had suggested the below points: • Use low-energy lighting. Replace tungsten GLS lamps and T12 fluorescent tubes with much more energy efficient items such as T5 tubes or compact fluorescent or LED lamps. These could help to reduce the electricity you consume for lighting by up to 80%. • Implement a building management system (BEMS). These systems control and monitor heating, ventilation and air conditioning, and can reduce total energy costs by 10% or
