LEED Report: Hospitality Efficiency Growing

LEED energy manageThe U.S. Green Building Council’s “LEED in Motion: Hospitality” report found that more than 109 million square feet of hotel space is LEED-certified, according to the organization.

More than 1,400 hotels, which represent 638.7 million square feet, participate in the LEED program. The release cites a McGraw Hill Construction study that found than green construction in the hospitality segment increased by half between 2011 and 2013. It now accounts for 25 percent of new hospital construction.

The release points out that the hospitality sector is one in which close control of operations and environmental factors – including use of energy and other resources – are especially important because of the 24/7 nature of operations.

In October, Leviton introduced the Omnistat 3 Hospitality Thermostat, which is aimed increasing energy efficiency in hotel guest rooms.
