Smart Energy Management Solutions Can Help Reduce Energy Costs.

Energy costs are constantly increasing, and the hospitality industry in India has been consistently adopting energy management solutions in varying degrees.

Interestingly however, most of these solutions have been passive, like a key card solution that helps a hotel save energy in a room that is occupied. But what about a room that is unoccupied? It is here that energy continues to needlessly drain, adding to your monthly bills.

Energy is the biggest operating cost in a hotel after staff, and can be as high as 25%. In such a scenario, where a hotel needs to balance its guest comfort versus energy costs, could the answer lie in a smart energy management solution that has a real-time occupancy system?

To answer this question, IDS NEXT studied the benefits of a smart energy management solution, Energex. This is a decade old company based in Canada, with a large presence in North America.

Some of their clients include Sheraton Hotels and Resorts, The Fairmount, BestWestern and others. Energex Solution is available in India since early 2012, through a partnership with IDS NEXT.
