Holiday Inn: High Wycombe

This Holiday Inn which is ideally situated at J4 of the M40 has joined The Energy Revolution™ with an installation of a G-GEN™ combined power and heat engine.

In doing so, the hotel is reducing its carbon emissions, energy costs and dependency on the National Grid which will provide more stability against energy markets that are influenced by global, political and socio-economic factors.

The hotel is utilising a G-GEN™ 50 engine to generate their electricity on-site and capitalise from the heat that is released from this generation process. The engine has generated 152,466 kWh’s of electricity & 282,820kWt’s of heat in a five-month period. Additionally, the hotel will benefit from a reduction in its carbon emission by up to to 66 tonnes per year.

The G-GEN™ was installed with a 3,000-litre buffer vessel allowing the heat to be connected to the hotel’s hot water and heating systems. Because the hotel was particularly busy during the installation period, some work on the gas supply was carried out at night to minimise any disruption to the hotel and the comfort of its guest’s.

The G-GEN™ 50 was built in the factory and test run, before being disassembled, delivered and re-built on-site in the hotel’s compact plant room. By utilising the innovative G-FUND™ finance mechanism, the hotel can benefit immediately from the great savings in energy costs, safe in the knowledge they have done their bit to fulfil their green responsibility and support the fight against climate change.
