The tourism and leisure industry consumes significant amounts of energy through the operation of various facilities, transportation systems, and recreational activities.
This includes accommodation facilities, transportation, tourist attractions, and recreational activities. However, there is a growing focus on adopting energy-efficient technologies, using renewable energy sources, and promoting sustainable practices to minimise the industry’s environmental impact and create a more sustainable tourism experience.
Hotels, resorts, and other types of accommodation require significant energy for heating, cooling, lighting, and providing essential services to guests.
Many hotels and resorts are adopting renewable energy sources, such as solar panels or heat pump (geothermal) systems, to power their operations. Energy-efficient practices, such as using LED lighting, installing smart thermostats, and implementing energy management systems, can help reduce energy consumption in accommodation facilities.
