This Application Note aims at describing the use of energy and the potential energy savings in the hotel sector, on the basis of theory and practical case studies. Hotels and restaurants represent some 9% of total energy consumption in the utility buildings sector. Utility buildings are offices, shops, hotels, restaurants, educational establishments and care institutions.

Before going into detail on the energy consumption of a hotel, one needs to have a view on the utility sector, the part hotels play in the sector, the number of hotels in Europe and the different types of hotels. This is the first part of the Application Note, followed by a description of the main energy uses and some case studies on energy efficiency improvements.

Hotels as part of the utility sector 
The hotel trade has gone through a serious evolution and expansion over therecent decades. Tourism is the most important industry in the world economy,both on the employment side as on the consumer side.

The grand total for the EU (of 27 countries) amounts up to some 201 168 hotelsand similar establishments (like motels, roadside inns, beach hotels, roomingand boarding houses, etc).In order to get an idea of the energy use in hotels as part of the utility sector, theexample is taken of the utility sector in Flanders. The breakdown for this sector isshown in Figure 1 below. Of course, Flanders is only a part of Belgium and asmall part of the EU, but the numbers are indicative for the rest.
