The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with The Organization of American States and the Inter-American and Caribbean Network of Small Hotels (INCAPH), is organizing a webinar on energy management for small hotels. The purpose of the webinar is to promote affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy usage among small and medium-sized hotels in the Americas.
There is increasing concern regarding how electricity is generated, delivered and consumed, especially among small and medium-sized hotels. The role of energy efficiency and energy generation is unleashing the potential for and promise of a better, cleaner, more reliable and affordable energy future.
The webinar will feature three presentations—one on the Chilean Ministry of Energy’s experience with improving energy efficiency associated with the implementation of Chile's national energy policy. The presentation will include an overview of the savings options through energy audits to identify opportunities and process improvements with good energy use.
The second presentation will focus on venture capital funds to support energy efficiency and renewable energy projects for small and medium-sized companies.
The third presentation will highlight the Nearly Zero Emissions Hotels (NEZEH) project. It will describe the project, which was developed out of the European directive on the construction of buildings of almost zero energy consumption for new buildings. NEZEH aims to design and refurbish hotels in order to convert them into low-emission buildings, and the presentation will share the measures taken and the project’s main results.
The presentations will be followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
