Transforming Existing Hotels to Net Zero Carbon

This white paper, produced in collaboration with Arup, Gleeds and IHG, tackles the operational net zero carbon challenge for existing hotels, using a real-life case study to demonstrate the impact of each stage in the journey. It sets out a high-level framework, prioritising different interventions throughout the lifecycle with the goal of achieving net zero carbon in an existing hotel by 2050 in order to meet new regulatory requirements.

For our study, the focus is on reducing operational energy to achieve net zero carbon. We also consider the embodied carbon impact of interventions, and how that compares to building new. In the paper, we consider three main objectives:

– Achieving net zero carbon emissions in operation.
– Delivering occupant comfort.
– Balancing operational savings with the costs of interventions
