Quimera Energy and Suma Capital expand its operations within the global hospitality sector
Quimera Energy and Suma Capital announce a major step forward in their strategy to reduce energy consumption.
Quimera ESCO has signed new contracts with 3 of the leading global hotel chains initiating projects in Germany, Greece and Spain that will deploy its proven innovative energy efficiency methodology to substantially reduce energy consumption at their properties.
In March 2016, Suma Capital Energy Efficiency Fund, and the energy division of Quimera Group, Quimera Energy, created a joint venture that operates under the name Quimera ESCO. This joint venture’s aim is to improve energy efficiency and minimize energy consumption for the hospitality sector so lowering its emissions.
The first energy services contract signed by the new company, Quimera ESCO, was with one of London´s landmark hotels, Andaz Liverpool Street Hotel by Hyatt. As a result, Quimera ESCO has been able to deliver energy savings in excess of a 20% at this property. This has also been achieved without any investment required from the Hotel. Following the delivery of these impressive savings at their London property, Hyatt Hotels Corporation has recently expanded the scope of this agreement signing a new contract with Quimera ESCO to implement the energy optimization project for Hyatt Berlin with the objective of extending the collaboration across their properties in Europe.
In addition to the Hyatt contracts, a further two leading global hotel brands have also selected Quimera´s approach to energy efficiency and cost reduction for their properties. This has resulted in Quimera ESCO, starting new pilot projects in Athens and the Canary Islands , aiming to expand our collaboration with these two groups across their portfolio of properties globally.
This demonstrates that, Quimera ESCO, with the support of Suma Capital continues to consolidate it’s position as a global leader and preferred partner of the world´s most renowned hotel groups enabling them to achieve energy optimization and cost reduction at no cost to themselves based on the proven “no savings-no fee” business model. Suma Capital intends to continue accompanying Quimera ESCO in its global expansion as it has been doing over the past year, with a focus on growing Quimera ESCO’s operations in Europe.
