The Hilton Hotel is in the heart of Canary Wharf, London where it predominately serves the business traveller. The hotel was built in 2006 and has 282 guest rooms. The hotel benefits from meeting spaces that can accommodate up to 400 people and over 15,000 sqft of flexible space for many types of events. In addition it also has a number of dining facilities, bars, fitness suite, sauna and steam room. The hotel has an Automated Logic BeMS, 3 Chillers, 15 AHU’s, 5 Boilers and intelligent room controls.
The hotel has always been one of the best performers in the Hilton Group from an energy efficiency perspective, which has been down to a combination of the building infrastructure and the Chief Engineer that has been responsible for operating all technical services at the hotel since it opened. With the hotel already being energy efficient making further savings was going to be challenging. The Hilton Group considered if we could make savings at this hotel, we are likely to make savings at most of the Hilton Hotels.
The objective was to make energy savings through optimisation of the existing assets and systems already in place. The BeMS was reviewed, a list of energy conservation measures was developed and agreed with the hotel. An action plan was put in place to implement changes over a number of weeks/months, working with the technical services team. A controller was installed to collect the historical data from the Automated Logic BeMS systems that could be pushed to the Optimised Analytics platform. The Analytics and aM&T platforms were configured and our Optimised Bureau team utilised the insights to make informed decisions about further optimisation strategies, whilst maintaining the energy conservation measures.
Analytics and Optimisation
The combination of technology (Optimised Analytics / aM&T) and expertise (Optimised Bureau) provides the winning combination to ensure energy saving measures are not only identified, but acted upon. The Optimised Analytics import around 500 points from the BeMS every 15 mins and it is this data that feeds the analytical rules that help us ensure that the hotel remains optimised.
The Optimised aM&T platform focuses on the metering, analysing data that allows continuous performance monitoring of energy consumption. As issues are identified our skilled BeMS engineers remotely connect to the hotel and make changes accordingly, while keeping the technical services team aware at all times.
Working closely with the technical services team has enabled us to achieve 3.5% kWh reduction in the first year that was inline with originally projected forecast. Over the next 2 years the goal is to increase the savings by a further 1% per annum with additional energy conservation measures generated from the Analytical data.
If you are to create better returns from your property portfolio, then minimising operational costs is essential. Expert building and utilities management can help you do that, yet cost efficiencies need to be balanced against the need to provide a quality space and environment to tenants that ensures you meet your responsibilities, while creating high occupancy, as well as cost-efficiency. At Optimised Buildings we have pulled together best of breed technologies and services to bring many aspects of managing energy for real estate owners and operators under a single umbrella which we strongly believe will help you on your journey.
