City Inn applies t-mac to reducing electricity use

City Inn’s flagship hotel in Westminster, London, is working to reduce its electricity consumption with the installation of a monitoring system from t-mac Technologies. City Inn has begun a pilot programme to identify the effect on electricity usage of changing staff operating procedures and adding a new level of sophistication to the hotel’s building-management system.

The effects will be tracked using the t-mac system. The results will be used to improve efficiency and save money across the entire City Inn group.

11 areas have been identified for sub-metering. They range from the plant room to external lighting.

The City Inn team can log into t-mac’s dedicated web site to check electricity consumption in each area of the hotel and make changes accordingly. The t-mac system logs every change so the effect can be measured.

David Orr, chief executive and co-founder of City Inn, explains, ‘We have built and designed every one of our hotels with the environment in mind, but improvements can always be made, and t-mac has revealed many opportunities to become more energy efficient in our electricity usage. T-mac has greatly simplified the daunting task of making sense of a 24/7 business’s electricity consumption. Not only are we progressing towards our environmental goals, we are saving money, too.’
