Coming off of HITEC Minneapolis, where we unveiled our CIRQ+ 2.0 with advanced occupancy sensors, multimodal HD touch, proprietary voice, and mobile app interfaces, we showcased our commitment to changing the energy usage paradigm by providing an Energy Calculator Tool for properties to quickly calculate the potential wasted energy hours being funneled into their guestrooms 365 days-a-year.
Over the 3 day event, we met with properties totaling over 280,000 rooms, that used our Energy Hour Calculator to grasp the impact of not having an energy management strategy on in their property.
Incredibly, using the number of rooms in each hotel and our model, we showed that these properties collectively waste 1.2 billion hours of energy in their rooms over a year!
Hotels are among the top power draws on the electric grid using unlimited energy based on an almost 100-year-old practice of heating and cooling empty rooms 40-60% of the time in hopes of garnering a good review. This outdated practice of going after the low hanging fruit for profit has to change. This is the 21 century. Let’s start operating like it is.
CIRQ+ offers an autonomous energy management system that allows hoteliers to adjust temperatures, lighting and environmental settings when rooms are unoccupied, and return them to the guests’ last settings upon their return.
Unlike other systems in the market that are cobbled together to claim energy management, CIRQ+ is the only one to offer a complete solution. Hotels can reduce energy consumption from 22 to 50 percent (depending on the property and location) and reduce property operating costs gain more control of their bottom line.
Reach out to us today to learn how a simple measure and an attainable technology platform / strategy can finally help your property break out of this century old energy practice and set you on the path for saving natural resources and promoting a green strategy that will capture the attention of individual and business of travelers from around the world!
