Hyatt wins the AEE’s Western Europe Region Energy Project of the Year Award for 2018 by using IoT technology and intelligent energy saving methodology provided by Quimera Energy Efficiency
Quimera Energy Efficiency (QEE) is celebrating the success of winning one of the AEE Awards 2018 by presenting the Monitor & Save project in collaboration with Andaz London Liverpool Street hotel.
Winning the AEE award represents a big contribution towards sustainability goals of Andaz London Liverpool Street and is a big milestone for Quimera Energy Efficiency in terms of recognition of all efforts and quality of the project.
The innovative approach of the Monitor & Save project provides intelligent monitoring-based commissioning service with no investment required from the client to fully optimize the facility. The in-built intelligent solution based on the IoT technology is costumed to every building’s needs and is provided under performance based scheme resulting in continuous and autonomous commissioning.
In the case of the Andaz London Liverpool Street hotel, the project kicked off in 2016 and within a year 21% of electricity and 27,1% of gas consumption was saved. This translates in 500.000kg of CO2 emissions saved to enhance the sustainability of our environment. This was achieved using the methodology of Monitor & Save, including the Bopstem technology provided by Wisestate, which is a ground-breaking IoT solution for HVAC control and automation without suffering guest comfort.
