During the energy evaluation of Creta Maris Beach Resort, we combined various parameters to achieve a final result as objective as possible. In the charts below, the measurements start from April to September, while the occupancy, weather conditions and other factors are considered as stable operating conditions.
Based on the Greek relevant legislation and statistics, there are three categories of hotels, based on the average energy consumption (gas consumption in liters per guest and energy consumption in kWh per night):
- A hotel is considered an energy “diamond” for average consumption of up to 0.30 liters of gas per guest and up to 16 kWh of average electricity consumption per guest.
- Very good to excellent for average energy consumption of up to 0.70 liters of gas per guest and 24 kWh of average electricity consumption per guest.
- From 0.70 liters to 0.90 liters of average gas per guest and 25 - 30 kWh of average electricity consumption per guest, the hotel is considered energy-intensive and requires energy saving interventions.
Creta Maris Beach Resort energy consumption, is 1.08 liters of average gas consumption per guest and 36 kWh of average electricity consumption per guest for the year 2017.
It is important to mention that this consumption is higher than usual, as exceptionally, and in contrast to previous years, the resort was fully operational during February and November (the previous years’ measurements started from April) due to conferences that were held on its premises. Additionally, it is worth mentioning that for the needs of the particular conferences the full operation of the resort was requested, which, in relation to the low number of guests and the low temperatures, resulted in the increase of the average annual energy consumption. Finally, it is also important to note that hadn’t the two conferences been held, the prices would have been as follows: 0.32 liters of average gas consumption per guest and 19 kWh of average electricity consumption per guest for the year 2017.
