Action Plan for Stopping Energy Waste in Hotels

Action Plan for Stopping Energy Waste in Hotels

Energy waste is a very costly problem for hotels everywhere. These costs directly affect everyone by reducing profits and the ability to make business improvements.

Informed employees can play an important role in tracking down and stopping energy waste. Management's role is to empower its people by giving them information and processes in which they can participate. It is around this philosophy that awarenessIDEAS built its Hotel Employee Awareness Energy Conservation Program.

From creating awareness, developing interest, promoting motivation by demonstrating benefits, moving people to action, to giving recognition when deserved, we can be your partner in energy conservation.

For thirty years, our people have been helping clients design energy awareness and process materials that track and reinforce good energy habits. AwarenessIDEAS programs have been successfully used in hotels for many years. We customize ideas and products to fit your needs. Here are some suggestions that are easily transferrable to your organization.

HOTEL ENERGY ACTION PLAN

Set a standard for energy usage that everyone can agree upon. One standard awarenessIDEAS recommends is: "All Processes shall conform to the energy expectations and requirements designed into the system and only in the amount of energy usage necessary to do the job. Just enough is enough energy." Get that message across using every avenue of communications open to you.

  • Create Energy Teams to coordinate activities throughout your hotel.
  • Dress your Energy Teams in wearables that give them recognition and identity. We can easily add your hotel logo to any of these wearables.
  • Let us create banners and posters with your Energy Vision or Message. These can hang in your facility lounge, your hallways or any where else that a message of energy conservation would be beneficial.
  • Have a suggestion contest that lasts 30 days, once every 6 months. Have appropriate inexpensive Awareness for thoughtful ideas. Youíll be pleased by the great ideas your hotel employees will have on conservation.
  • Use our write-on/wipe-off charts designed to monitor your specific areas. Youíll be able to monitor energy usage for everything from hotel rooms to maintenance.
  • Encourage area groups to chart energy maintenance or possibility of non-conformances on specific processes. We can make the charts to fit every group in your hotel.
  • Use our energy information boards to hold posters and hotel energy information inserts.
  • Tag all energy non-conformances, giving each one a priority rating. This will guide your hotelís energy teams to perform maintenance as needed.
  • Use our leak tag information boards and accompany them with reinforced banners and posters.
  • Encourage all employees to Adopt-A-Door and if appropriate....close it when unnecessarily open.
  • Pass out our Energy Tip Booklets to all your employees families. Encourage each family to find ways of reducing energy waste in their homes. Use family success stories in each issue of your organizations newsletter. This is a powerful way to keep your people talking about energy conservation and their participation.
  • Use energy posters to spotlight specific kinds of energy waste in your hotel and its cost.  Identifying individual problem areas in your hotel will lead to specific success stories.
  • Have a contest each month that relates to that months energy poster. A contest keeps the poster message alive. People talk about the problem and therefore pay more attention to solving it.
  • Have a contest that encourages each work area to improve its energy conservation efforts. Give recognition for continuous achievement by departments and by individual energy champions.
  • Use inexpensive Awareness for playing an active role in using "Just enough energy."  The smallest handouts and corporate gifts can leave lasting impressions to both your hotel employees and hotel guests
  • Give rewards and recognition to department managers and the maintenance teams staying on top of reducing energy non-conformances in your hotel.
