News: Powerstar cuts Whitbread’s energy consumption


Rotherham-based EMSc has successfully installed 25 of the company's market leading voltage optimisation products, Powerstar, for Whitbread, the market-leading businesses in budget hotels, restaurants and coffee shops.

The products have been installed in a number of different Whitbread hotels and restaurants across the country. The locations were chosen for their different energy consumption and profiles.

Templeborough-based EMS worked closely with Whitbread not only to understand the company's energy and carbon reduction strategy, but also the specific requirements of each individual location. The tailored products will provide Whitbread with a zero maintenance solution and a payback period that is second to none.

The savings from the Powerstar systems supported the company in reducing its direct electricity consumption and associated CO2 emissions.

Early results from the hotels and restaurants have proved impressive, with a number of large hotel installations outperforming the guaranteed minimum levels of cost savings set by EMS - energy savings were estimated to be as high as 18% a year.

Chris George, head of Energy and Environment at Whitbread Hotels and Restaurants said: "We're serious about sustainability at Whitbread because we know it's the right thing to do for the planet and it's what our customers and our teams want.

"Smart investment in new technologies is a key part of our "Good Together", strategy. It helps us to reduce the amount of energy we consume, cut carbon emissions and conserve natural resources to make sure we are doing more for less.

"We found Powerstar to be both professional and proactive in their awareness of the installation requirements during business operational hours, which ensured minimum disturbance for our guests."

Alex Mardapittas, managing director EMSc added: "We are very much looking forward to developing a long term relationship with Whitbread."

EMS recently announced another successful 12 months trading, with turnover increasing by 50%, to £12.4m. During the course of the last twelve months the company also doubled its workforce, to 70 people and has moved into new premises to accommodate the growth it has been experiencing.
