And don’t forget the ecotourism bonus
As many hotels, resorts and restaurants are discovering, ecotourism and green tourism is far from a fad, with increasing evidence to suggest that the public prefer spending their money where they know they aren’t contributing to climate change.
With many prestigious and diverse clients, IU Energy has years of expertise in this sector. In particular, this experience includes enabling green leisure and tourism businesses.
Energy saving in leisure and hospitality is an imperative and the opportunity for renewable, self-generated energy and energy efficient technology is significant. Moreover, it is applicable across many functions and services. For this reason, the return on investment is particularly good for those investing in environmentally friendly tourism.
What are your options for ecotourism?
In the first place, embracing ‘green’ is as simple as buying a green electricity tariff. Make sure your customers know about it when you do!
For another easy win, add battery storage to store off-peak electricity for use at peak demand times. If you’re more ambitious and not only want to use a green tariff, but also add to your profit potential, there are multiple options.
In general, if you’re an out of town business, the potential for green energy self-generation is usually greater. All the following are possibilities.
- Green electricity and gas tariffs
- Fixed term green energy deals
- Solar PV
- Battery Storage
- Power Purchase Agreements
- Solar Thermal
- Air Source Heat Pumps
- Ground Source Heat Pumps
- Biomass boilers
- Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
- Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations
Of course, award-winning IU Energy has demonstrable capability with all these technologies.
Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs)
if you’re a big enough electricity user and have roof-space or spare land, we may also be able to help you with a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). Essentially this means Solar PV installation with little or no upfront costs, and years of cheap, 100% renewable electricity. How’s that as an option for a green hotel?

“IU Energy were awarded the contract based on their consulting capability and technical ability to design and implement a turnkey solution, which was crucial due to the restricted timescale. Their work is really paying off and will continue to do so for years to come.”

The Thurlestone Hotel
“Just renewed our energy contracts through IU Energy again. Excellent, personal service throughout the term of our last contract and no-one we got quotes from could beat them on price again this time around. Highly recommended.”
