Cadbury House, one of the West Country’s leading four-star hotel and health club has reduced dramatically its reliance on the national grid for its electricity while improving its carbon footprint and cutting the amount of CO2 it produces.
It follows the installation of two state-of-the-art combined heat and power (CHP) units which now allow the venue to produce its own power.
The result has meant the hotel and house have reduced their grid dependency by 77%, while the health club has reduced its grid dependency by 70%.
Efficiently generating electricity and heat from a single gas fuel source has meant a reduction in CO2 by over 53,000 kgs in the first two months alone* – the equivalent of fully charging 6,910,240 smartphones!
Mehmet Kandemir, general manager at the award-winning venue said: "The figures quite clearly speak for themselves.
"At Cadbury House, we’re very conscious of the impact our business might have on the environment, so we’re always looking at ways in which we can improve this.
"Improvements in technology has made the installation of CHP units much more feasible, whereas in the past it would have perhaps been a little too cost-prohibitive. The new CHPs will help us further achieve our sustainability goals.
"Initiatives like these clearly demonstrate our commitment to sustainability, and continually challenging our carbon footprint is essential.
"It’s therefore great news that we have reduced our carbon footprint and our reliance on the national grid while making significant savings which will allow us to invest further into the business."
