heal.abstract
The aim of the current dissertation is the analysis of the Energy Efficiency Management (EEM) in hotel segment in Greece through the answering of a series of research questions and the presentation of a case study regarding a 5-star hotel in Halkidiki, Northern Greece. The goals and objectives of the hotel management, through the implementation of an Energy Management System (EMS), are presented. Moreover, two different approaches for the implementation of the EMS are described through the literature review, where the first accepts the importance and benefits of EMS and the other stands on the barriers that prevent its implementation. Regardless of the intention of hotel owners and managers to implement an EMS in order to increase the energy efficiency, there are a lot of cases that it is a mandatory for them to follow the European Union (EU) and Greek regulatory framework and finally install such a system. Furthermore, the three different layers of the EMS architecture are analyzed presenting also the respective benefits of the usage of each layer. A case study of a 5-star hotel in Halkidiki is used in order to demonstrate the benefits of the implementation of such a system. In addition to that, the data of a questionnaire, that the hotel management has developed, presented and this data in combination with the factors that affect the Return of Investment (ROI) has been taken into account so as a proper EMS to be designed and installed in order to maximize the energy efficiency and minimize the payback period. The Return of Investment (ROI), the Internal Rate of Return (IRR) and the Net Present Value (NPV) were calculated in order to prove the profitability and the attractiveness of the investment. The importance of EMS is not limited only to financial indicators but also to the marketing of the hotel since it is the key factor so as to be green and eco-friendly. Finally, the study includes recommendations regarding the next investments that should be implemented in order the management to increase further the energy efficiency and reduce the unnecessary costs as well as the respective conclusions that are very useful for all the hotel owners that are not obliged to implement such a system and they doubt whether they should do it or not.
