Saving Energy at Intercontinental Hotel Sydney
Intercontinental Hotel Sydney is saving energy through a number of energy saving trials and initiatives. Assistant chief engineer, Matthew Willox, won Facility Management’s enLighten giveaway in the Dec-Jan 13 edition, is running a trial of enLighten’s 10 chip ceiling mount standard Chamaeleon lights in back-of-house service corridors and staff locker room areas. These areas are currently lit by single 36 W fluorescent tube lighting – compared to the Chamaeleon’s average consumption of 9.2 W (based on 70 percent standby usage and 30 percent occupancy).
