Energy concepts and environment protection, who takes must give as well
For the environment
A fairly long time we invest in sustainability of the Kurfürsten Resort. With the huge expansion of the hotel we searched for the latest technologies to conserve the natural resources. Last we renewed the thermal power station(BHKW). Currently we operate 4 BHKWs with an overall performance of 65 KW. These BHKWs are spread over the hotel complex. To reach the maximum performance we needed to connect each electric and thermal energy. The connection was needed to receive the modulating power distribution. Through the buffer storage in the thermal section and the energy input resources are used efficiently.
Not only to reach environmentally friendly use of energy was our motivation but also looking for a perfect partner who campaigns for environmentalism.
We found what we searched for with VIABONO, an organisation which is specialised in the hotel and restaurant industry.
In Viabono we found a partner who frequently provides us at the same time new input and controls the standard of each participating partner. Every partner is trained and tested about environmentally friendly actions.
Environment protection can be quite easy. Here are some examples which can help to provide CO2 emissions.
- Regional mineral water
- Mostly use products from the region
- Reduce the consumption of water modulated by accomodations
- Use bio-products to reduce pollutant emissions
- Waste management programs from waste separation to recycling
- Reducing brochure distribution alike reducing print run replaced by e-mail distribution instead of printed paper
- and many more
