Drawing from its two decades of energy auditing large Hotel properties across 27 countries, EEG has developed HEP, a unique portal for Hospitality Groups .
HEP was built bottom to top with their operation in mind and focuses on four main axis:
HEP makes usage of the existing infrastructure and practices of Hotels. In addition, an optional IoT Connector enabling Gateways to gather real-time and historical data from any metering device or equipment of a property can be integrated to HEP.
HEP is a SaaS which means it can be accessed from any browser, anytime.
Hotel properties have gigantic utilities and operations-related data which need to be democratized for an in-depth analysis, assessment, and understanding. As data analytics is essential in driving utilities and sustainability management, Hotels need to have an easy to access comprehensive data with an intuitive and scalable reporting system that could turn all data into insights.
With HEP, users can:
Spend more time Analyzing, Less Processing: Productivity and Time efficiency are all about spending more time analyzing data and less time processing it. Once the system is set up, raw daily and monthly data can be seamlessly uploaded using special Excel connectors that would connect to any existing Excel sheets used by any given Hotel. Climatic data are automatically updated daily (CDD & HDD).
Enjoy a comprehensive Report Module: Drilling on all the raw data from a macro or granular ways, HEP turns Big Data into intuitive charts and reports which include the following:
More than 10 reports covering a Hotel's Total Utilities analysis including configurable charts and formatted reports. Reports include additional sustainability indicators such as Carbon Footprint and Waste segregation.
To drill down on any specific Hotel utility (Electricity, Water, LPG,…) via more than 70 configurable reports. These include reports per guest nights, room nights, built-up areas, or v/s budget. They also include comparative analysis with previous year along with climatic data (HDD and CDD) .
The Hospitality Group Report module in HEP includes more than 15 reports allowing full comparative analysis of any given Hotels and on any utility parameters. Reports can be segregated by region or type of hotel.
Daily data analysis allowing the visibility of a Month to Date view (daily and accumulated figures) for all key Hotel's utilities parameters and KPIs compared with the same period of the previous year and with the equivalent number of days of the budget. Daily comparative charts are available for all utilities with correlation with climatic conditions and occupancy.
Granular analysis for an unlimited number of submeters for any utility with comparative analysis of each meter for the same daily period of the previous year, or as a stacked type including multiple combined meters. The analysis includes daily Climatic conditions and occupancy variations for both years.
The perfect tool to track energy efficiency projects' performances on an 'apple to apple' basis versus a baseline year. The module provides the regression model (regression equation) according to the chosen baseline year and then tracks the actual v/s predicted utility consumption for the forthcoming period. Regression analysis can be done for any utility service of a Hotel.
HEP includes an automatic mechanism sending alerts and reports to subscribed users on configurable parameters such as (but not limited to):
Data Analytics is incomplete if it isn't also correlated to implemented Efficiency Measures. On the other hand, there is always a difficulty for Hospitality Groups to align all properties on efficiency and sustainability projects, or in fact to track the various actions taken. This is why HEP includes a set of features that will help each property as well as the regional or group management to drive efficiency projects forward. These are:
It is a technical library/catalog that is expandable and covers all key categories such as HVAC, Steam & Hot Water Systems, and operations. Every category is developed through a set of subcategories and all the related Efficiency Actions. Properties can then browse the catalog, pick any valid action, and add it to their 'Action Plan'. Alternatively, users can add new Efficiency Measures to the catalog which will be also shared with the other users/properties on the portal.
This is the 'Project Management' module of HEP providing full visibility across each Hotel as well as regional and group management. It clearly indicates 'who is doing what' along with the key parameters of each Efficiency/Sustainability Measure and the possibility to have comments and files attached to each. From a Regional or Group Management perspectives, EMAs can be tracked across individual properties, regions, and categories.
The Energy Audit Centre is a repository module where Energy Audit Report files are stored as well as individual assets lists that will help full access to these crucial documents across a Hotel and a Hospitality Group.
HEP’s Discussion board is meant to enhance the cooperation between all engineering departments of a Hospitality Group and push the overall cooperation and dynamism into higher levels. Combined with the HEP overall features, it turns every property from a virtual 'island' to a cluster of sites and users with an enhanced team spirit and efficiencies across the board.
Forums include subtopics related to the key technical operation of a Hotel property such as HVAC, Energy procurement or just assistance as seen in the below snapshot.
From local hardware to cloud interface. HEP’s optional IoT module revolves around Gateways that communicate with multiple devices, equipment and protocols. The potential metering solution enables remote real-time measurement and data acquisition from different types of meters (eg: energy, gas, water, sewage, air quality) through an IoT Connector or through standard Ethernet or GPRS communication interface.
The configuration is flexible as it can virtually enable measuring and/or connecting to any type of device or equipment bringing further depth to HEP..
