Hotel Bredeney: Nine sensors for more transparency

An 18 x 7 metre pool with counter-current system, air-conditioned fitness room, steam sauna and numerous offers for families, business travellers or weekly excursionists: The Hotel Bredeney in Essen is the perfect place for a relaxing stay in the Ruhr area. At the same time, many energy guzzlers are hiding there.

In order to show energy saving possibilities and to save actively, the management of the hotel decided for the process and energy monitoring system bit.B. Thus, for example, the standby times of various devices can be reduced and unnecessary energy consumption avoided.

First turn the small adjusting screws, then change the big picture - that is the motto in the case of Hotel Bredeney. For example, if bit.B determines that the sauna is always unattended at certain times, it can also be switched off during this period, explains Michael Krystof, bit.B. project manager. The countercurrent system of the pool does not have to be in operation around the clock if the hotel guests do not use it.

Member of the Management Board of Hotel Bredeney
»The transparency we have gained over our consumption has made it possible for us to detect weak points in the first place.«

But to achieve this, the savings potential in the company must first be uncovered. After just one day, software and hardware were installed and ready for use - since then nine sensors have been collecting readings from a refrigerating machine, all kitchens and the electricity meter.

The energy monitoring system creates transparency: All data is processed quickly, easily and comprehensibly and can be called up by the user at any time. That's convincing.

With bit.B we can observe everything ourselves and compile the necessary information, says Taina Notbohm, member of the management of the four-star hotel. To what extent new investments pay off, the management can now weigh up exactly with the data of bit.B.

Working with bit.B usually pays for itself within one year. But energy management is a continuous process, valid connections can often only be established after a long time.
