ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION MANAGEMENT
Credence continuously monitors its electricity consumption of the individual hotels and properties and reviews opportunities for energy savings. Initiatives such as the use of low energy lamps in all internal and external lighting, using room key activation cards for switching all room power, and the optimization of swimming pool temperature control have all been implemented to save energy. Natural sunlight has replaced energy-intensive dryers in the laundry in order to line-dry all possible linens. It has also adopted a strict maintenance strategy to ensure optimal use of plants and machinery.
Credence have partnered up with EACOM EDAW and the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems, two of the world’s leading environmental & energy advisory firms, to improve its development’s energy consumption and efficiencies and in exploring different sustainability solutions and practices.
Credence is currently planning to implement 3 environmental projects, including the replacement of bottled gas with city gas for kitchen use, replacing oil fired hot water with solar hot water, and using energy-efficient boilers. Credence is also implementing solutions to recover energy from the main ventilation systems, insulating hot and chilled water pipes, and a series of ongoing upgrades to the infrastructure with more energy efficient alternatives.
