Case Study

Energy efficient hotel in Turkey

Ilayda Hotel is located in Kusadasi, the South-West Turkey, one of the most popular touristic destinations in the country.

The company decided to renovate the hotel to reduce the energy bill and improve the quality of energy supply. 
The investment focused on the most energy intensive systems of the hotel: lighting, heating, cooling and ventilation systems.
Ilayda Hotel applied for the TurSEFF financing and benefitted from the online Technology Selector, where they could select the pre-approved high performance technologies leading to energy savings. In particular, the company purchased variable refrigerant flow system, heat pumps, LED lighting and solar water heaters.
The investment of €285,163 allowed the hotel to decrease its energy costs by around €60,000 per year. It means the investment will be paid off from energy savings in less than 5 years. With expected lifetime of new equipment, the savings will continue for many more years adding to the company’s income. On the other hand, the company will feel the benefits immediately in the first monthly energy bill. Not to forget the reliability of supply and improved comfort for guests, which will surely attract more clients and increase the hotel's revenues.
In addition, the project resulted in the CO2 emissions savings of 65 per cent, making its input to mitigation of negative effect of human activity on climate.
This way, the hotel improved its financial standing and competitiveness at the market, while demonstrating the best practices of energy efficency investments in buidlings for others to follow the example.
