Inntelect Energy: Combined Heating & Power for Hotels
Become Your Own Utility Company
Hoteliers can achieve independence by using microturbines with Combined Heating & Power (CHP) to generate power at a fraction of the cost compared to utilities. They are compact, taking up space equivalent to a parking space, and operate quietly enough that guests won't even notice.
Combined Heating & Power simultaneously produces heat alongside electricity and directs it into the boiler, reducing the need for additional fuel. This approach minimizes waste, lowers the carbon footprint, and achieves efficiency levels of 80% (or more).
A Green Solution for Every Flag
Inntelect collaborates with top microturbine experts, renowned for decades of innovation and global experience in power generation from various fuels, typically achieving a remarkable 50% or greater reduction in carbon emissions.
Inntelect's energy solutions surpass the Scope 2 carbon reduction goals of Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt and IHG, as well as other major brands. We can guarantee your portfolio meets brand standards and sets a best practice example for others to follow.
Energy When You Need It Most
NO MORE BLACKOUTS
An aging infrastructure and climate change lead to outages and revenue loss for hotels. Microturbines with CHP offer greater reliability than the grid and are a wise choice, especially during extreme weather-related blackouts in peak demand seasons.
Microturbines with CHP provide hotels with resilience during natural disasters. For instance, Margaritaville Resort in St. Thomas maintained power with CHP during Hurricane Irma, ensuring guests could still enjoy a Cheeseburger in Paradise.
Strategic Business Scenarios
A 150-room select service hotel can cut energy costs by 58%, slash carbon emissions by half, boost EBITDA by 2.7 percentage points, and yield an investment return with a Net Present Value of $2.9 million and an Internal Rate of Return of 102%.
A 475-room full service hotel reduces energy costs by $469k, boosts EBITDA by 2.5 points, and yields an investment return with a Net Present Value of $8.2 million and an Internal Rate of Return of 46%, while cutting carbon emissions by 55%.
