Carrier: How to Reduce Energy Consumption in Hotels

Carrier: How to Reduce Energy Consumption in Hotels

(Issue of a magazine 2/2017, page 114)

In this article we continue to share details of Carrier program “Energy Saving in Hotels”, started in a series of previous publications of Green Buildings magazine. The purpose of this program is to increase the energy efficiency of cooling centers and reduce energy consumption, taking into account the actual loads, climatic and working conditions of hotel buildings operation. Now we will talk about the automation and dispatching UTC CCS WebCTRL system, which allows you to easily manage the building’s engineering systems, including refrigeration center equipment via using the Plant System Manager program.

The world-major capitals, cities of the future, respectable offices and apartments are tightly associated in our mind with modern wonders of the world – skyscrapers. Glass skyscraper with panoramic windows flooded with light is a completely new concept of construction, forming specific subvariety of engineering tasks. When meeting these challenges, architects and design engineers face a number of problems starting with a foundation (the world-tallest skyscraper Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE, weighs over 10 thousand tons) and ending with telecommunications inside the building (maximum signal transmission distance is only 20m for traditional copper communication lines and 300m for optical lines, while super high skyscrapers are much taller). That is why high-rise buildings are distinguished by a wide range of the most advanced materials and design peculiarities.

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced that it has jointly developed what is believed to be the world’s first system that analyzes data from surveillance cameras for high-accuracy real-time estimation and prediction of crowd congestion on pathways to and from event sites, working in collaboration with the Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology of Tokyo University (RCAST). As a solution for effectively managing crowd congestion based on highly accurate prediction, it is hoped that the technology will contribute to increased visitor safety and security at events.

In the previous issue of Green Building magazine we started a story of the program launched by Carrier – “Energy efficiency in hotels”, aimed to improve energy efficiency Refrigerant centers and reduction of energy costs, taking into account the actual load, climatic and operating conditions of exploitation of hotel buildings. In this article we will focus on the complex of measures to achieve the efficient operation of cooling center in accordance with the actual load on the cooling system of the hotel.

Globally, buildings account for 40% of total energy consumption, significantly higher than energy used for transportation or industry. Within buildings, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) takes up the largest slice of the energy consumption. This proportion is approximately 40% in the US and is expected to be much higher in the warmer and more humid tropical weather of South East Asia.

When the Great East Japan Earthquake struck on March 11, 2011, large tremors were felt in Tokyo as well. Many people were alarmed by the shaking and had difficulty returning home, and then were forced to save power due to the nuclear power plant accident that followed. These incidents made us acutely aware of the importance of energy and the preciousness of human life. Based on the lessons learned through this experience, Co-op Kyosai Plaza was designed to be a pioneering office building that incorporates many countermeasures and functions.

To combat climate change, the Hong Kong Government has proposed a voluntary target to reduce our city-wide carbon intensity of 50% to 60% by 2020 as compared with 2005 level. Hong Kong’s buildings account for 90% of electricity consumption. Buildings are both a challenge and an opportunity for reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
