Meliá Orlando Suite Hotel at Celebration Implements

Eco Hotel Energy Efficiency Retrofits

Family-Friendly Orlando Hotel Aims to Reduce Energy Costs and Water Usage

Orlando, FL (May 30, 2017) – In an effort to meet corporate sustainability goals, Meliá Orlando Suite Hotel at Celebration, conveniently situated minutes away from Walt Disney World Parks, Sea World along with Universal Studios Orlando, has implemented multiple “green” technologies that reduce energy and water usage to help protect our fragile environment.  With the help of energy efficiency consulting services from Gone Green Earth, Meliá Orlando has recently implemented the following green technologies:

  • Energy Management System (EMS) – monitors, controls and maximizes the efficiency of all air conditioning (AC) systems for the hotel hallways, guest registration welcome lobby, administrative offices, mechanical rooms and the restaurant, 360 American Bistro & Bar.  The system includes automatic thermostat set-backs for low traffic hours to further reduce energy usage.
  • Heat recovery water heating solution – takes the wasted heat from the air conditioning (AC) refrigerant line to produce free hot water whenever the AC system is running, which reduces energy usage. 
  • Water conservation “Smart” valves – installed right after both the main water line and the irrigation meters, this unique solution reduces water usage and costs without lowering hotel room water pressure (i.e. affecting the guest experience).  The irrigation line water valve has already reduced water usage by 24%.
  • Recommissioning of all AC systems – this comprehensive annual maintenance program on all AC equipment ensures they are running at peak efficiency to reduce unnecessary wasted energy.
  • Electric vehicle charging stations – several charging stations were installed last year to support energy and environmentally friendly electric vehicles.
  • LED lighting – LEDs are replacing incandescent and fluorescent lamps throughout the entire property to reduce energy costs.
  • Frylow™ cooking oil and energy reduction solution – this unique solution doubles the lifespan of fryer cooking oil, reducing oil usage and disposal by 50%.  It also reduces overall fryer energy costs by working at lower cooking temperatures. Most importantly, this technology reduces oil absorption by 47%, creating healthier and better tasting food for our guests.

The implementation of these practices will allow Meliá Orlando to become more environmentally friendly and sustainable. Many more energy retrofits are being planned so the hotel can continue working toward a zero energy footprint.
