Executive Summary
India is rapidly becoming a preferred destination for tourism, both International as well as
Domestic, with an annual growth of about 15%. The hospitality sector is a major consumer
of energy in different forms for various end-uses. There is significant scope for direct energy
saving as well as complementing its energy supply through the installation of Solar Water
Heating Systems and other Renewable Energy Technologies (RETs). Towards this, the
Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has launched a unique initiative, titled
“Campaign on Solar Water Heating and other Renewable Energy Technologies in the
Hospitality Sector” under UNDP-GEF‟s National programme on Solar Water Heating
Systems (SWHS). The main objective of the project is to promote and accelerate the
application of Solar Water Heating and other RETs by developing and implementing a
nationwide campaign for the hospitality sector covering the hotel and catering industry. As
a part of this project five workshops and conference were organized to fine tune and
disseminate the tools developed for this project. This document summarizes the discussion
and interaction with the participants in these events.

Introduction
Prior studies commissioned by Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) have
identified several sectors with untapped potential for solar water heating, one of the major
sector identified is the hospitality sector. India is rapidly becoming a preferred destination
for tourism, both International as well as Domestic, with an annual growth of about 15%.
The hospitality sector is a major consumer of energy in different forms for various end-uses.
There is significant scope for direct energy saving as well as energy generation through the
installation of solar water heating and other renewable energy technologies (RETs). These
technologies can meet the energy requirements for cooking, air heating, drying, water
heating, steam and electricity production. They can not only bring about savings but also
substitute conventional electricity or fossil fuels resulting in a cleaner environment.
Promotion of renewable energy systems in the hospitality sector serves twin purposes, not
only does it helps address the issues of cleaner energy use but also helps to advertise these
systems widely through the hotel guests. The demand for hot water in hotels is high
throughout the year, this makes solar water heating more economical in this sector as
compared to those sectors where hot water may only be required seasonally. Accordingly, a
project for a “Campaign on Solar Water Heating and other Renewable Energy Technologies
in the Hospitality Sector” was designed by MNRE with assistance of UNDP-GEF under its
National programme on Solar Water Heating Systems. This project was jointly carried out
by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and Federation of Hotels and Restaurants
Associations of India (FHRAI) on behalf of MNRE, Government of India.
The main objective of the project is to promote and accelerate the application of Solar Water
Heating and other RETs by developing and implementing a nationwide campaign for the
hospitality sector covering the hotel and catering industry. The main technologies identified
for the hospitality sector are solar water heating; solar photovoltaics; biogas generation;
solar thermal concentrators; and solar passive architecture/green building design. TERI had
been interacting with hotels and restaurants across the country so as to understand their
energy requirements. Based on the findings of this study, several tools, checklists and
technology manuals were prepared to help the hospitality sector find the cost and size of
relevant renewable energy systems. To discuss these project outputs with the prospective
users, TERI organized three regional awareness workshops in Pune, Bengaluru and Kolkata
during June-July, 2011 and finally a national conference in October, 2011. The aim of these
workshops/conferences was:
•   To create an awareness about applications of renewables and energy conservation
    measures in the hospitality sector
•   To demonstrate the tools that have been developed to help the sector in identifying
    potential of such interventions in their establishments
•   To brief the participants on the relevant policies and programmes of MNRE
In all these workshops, participants were very interactive and were keen to study the
feasibility of using Solar Water Heaters and bio-waste to energy technologies at their
facilities. Constraints for installations and site integrations were enthusiastically discussed
between the participants and industry representatives.

Hospitality Sector

Synopsis
Indian scenario
India is rapidly becoming a preferred destination for tourism, both International as well as
Domestic, with an annual growth of about 15%. The hospitality sector is a major consumer
of energy in different forms for various end-uses. There is significant scope for direct energy
saving as well as energy generation through the installation of Solar Water Heating and
other Renewable Energy Technologies (RETs). For instance, appropriate solar thermal
systems can be installed for heating water for various requirements in the rooms, and
kitchen, etc. or for providing steam at higher temperatures for various applications. Solar
photovoltaic systems and devices - such as street lights, garden lights, corridor lights, bill
boards, or rooftop systems meeting captive power requirements - can be installed in hotels.
On the other hand, through use of bio – methanation or biogas plants not only food leftovers
and kitchen wastes, including fruit and vegetable wastes are disposed off in an
environmentally sound fashion but the biogas produced from these plants can be used as an
energy resource. Besides these, green/ energy efficient building designs can be introduced
based on solar passive concepts and techniques, resulting in considerable savings in energy
consumption in buildings, particularly from the large air-conditioning loads in hotels. Thus,
such interventions can not only bring about savings but also substitute conventional
electricity or fossil fuels resulting in a cleaner environment, making the hotels and
restaurants `green‟ in true sense.
The Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India has announced
“Guidelines for off-grid and decentralized solar applications” under the Jawaharlal Nehru
National Solar Mission (JNNSM) which provide attractive financial incentives for the
promotion of various types of solar energy systems, including in the hospitality sector.
Other programmes of MNRE have similar schemes for other renewables and measures
related to building energy efficiency.

Trends observed in hospitality sector
A study of energy profile in the hospitality sector was conducted during the project. Extent
and application of renewable energy technologies and energy conservation measures were
studied. Following are the few major findings of the study.
    Electricity is the most common source of energy, followed by diesel and LPG.
    Hot water demand is directly proportional to the star category type i.e. it increases with
    increasing star rating.
    34% of the hotels surveyed had solar water heating systems installed
    Flat Plate Collector (FPC) has been found to be more common than Evacuated Tube
    Collector (ETC) type solar water heating systems. Majority of the hotels have installed
    capacity in the range 1,000 LPD – 10,000 LPD (Litres per Day).
    86% of the respondents are willing to take up renewable energy technologies and other
    energy conservation measures to reduce their energy bills.
    Lack of space has been cited as the most common constraint for installing renewable
    energy systems.

Conclusion and recommendation
Study revealed that there is a substantial scope of implementation of solar water heating
systems and other renewable energy technologies in hospitality sector. There is a significant
level of awareness in the hotel industry of renewable energy technology. Many of these have
also installed one or more RETs or adopted energy conservation measures to reduce their
electricity consumption. Many hotels have installed solar water heating systems without
availing capital subsidies. However, some constraints hold back the intrusion of RETs in this
sector. Space constraint and high capital cost have been cited as the main reasons.
This partly tapped sector can be made aware about renewable energy technologies and its
benefits through creating awareness among them not only about technology and associated
benefits but also about the incentives offered by government to adopt these technologies;
this can boost the interest of hoteliers towards adoption. An effort was made during the
course of this project to educate hotels about these technologies, and the participating hotels
were fairly receptive to installing and using these systems. With the dissemination of the
tools developed, this gap can be filled in. Additionally MNRE should look into simplifying
the disbursement of capital subsidy, especially to attract smaller hotel.

National Conference, New Delhi
21 October 2011

Inaugural session
The conference began with the welcome address by Mr Amit Kumar
(Director, Energy Environment Technology Development, TERI).
Highlighting the information related to energy consumption and
opportunities that exist in energy conservation in Hospitality sector, he
explained the role of renewable energy to offset energy consumption –
SWH, bio-methanation etc. in hospitality Sector. He emphasized on the
impact that a hotel will leave as a “green hotel” and the viability of
using renewable energy to cater to their energy demands. . He also
appreciated the support and co-ordination being provided by FHRAI
which helped TERI during the survey. In the end, he briefed about
three regional workshops that TERI had conducted in different cities
viz. Kolkata, Bangalore, and Pune to educate the hospitality industry
regarding the positive impacts of SWHS.


                                Mr M.D. Kapoor, Secretary General, FHRAI, gave brief
                                introduction about FHRAI which has over 3700 members, 3rd
                                largest in world. He highlighted that many members of FHRAI do
                                make excuses on how to install SWHS in the already existing
                                hotels. He requested the hospitality industry to start adapting
                                itself to renewable as in near future it will be made mandatory. He
                                also focused the importance of profit with principles. Mr Kapoor
                                also shared his experience at recent member meeting that took
                                place in Bangkok –highlighting success stories of Chinese hotel
                                association on use of renewable energy in Chinese hotels. In the
                                end, he also offered space for regular articles on sustainability
                                which will now feature in FHRAI‟s magazine.


Dr A. K. Singhal, Director, MNRE, outlined the need to give thrust for
educating people, essentially the hospitality community about
benefits of renewable energy. He said that DG sets are popular in
hospitality sector because of limited electricity availability (around
10% deficit) and requested hospitality industry to adopt renewable
Energy, essentially solar in the hotels to reduce the usage of DG sets.
The most important way forward will be the use of energy
conservation measures followed by the use of renewable energy. He
also focused on the financial support being provided by the
Government of India, which is 30% of the capital cost as a subsidy to
encourage use of SWHS. Government is looking forward to ease out

the processes to avail subsidies. Rejecting the comments made by industry like
unavailability of roof or flat roof, commercial viability etc., Dr Singhal highlighted some case
studies of installations where there were many constraints, but with the use of technology
and creative solutions all of them could be addressed. He also urged for the requirement of
amendments in municipal bylaws so as to increase the penetration of SWH technologies. He
also showed various installations in hospitality industry where utilities are run on energy
provided through solar energy like cooling through solar energy, steam being used for
cooking and laundry, use of SPV for emergency lighting etc. He focused on the example of
ITC Maurya, where concentrating mechanism is used to produce steam, which is used in
various processes. This system is installed successfully on the roof of the hotel without
impeding the aesthetics of the building and its structure. He also advised using PV, and
SPV- wind hybrid system to produce electrical energy which can be used in many places,
and use of bio-degradable waste to produce fuel gases. He even encouraged focusing on
green architecture with the use of rating system like GRIHA and LEED for energy
conservation.
                                   Delivering the special address Dr S.N. Srinivas, Project Officer,
                                   UNDP India, detailed about SWH projects being done by GEF
                                   globally and in India. He pointed out that the current thrust
                                   countries where UNDP is active for developmental works are
                                   Lebanon, Tunisia, India and Mexico. Energy efficiency
                                   improvement project with BEE is in progress and the projects on
                                   concentrating technology are in pipeline. He even stressed on
                                   the lack of available technical expertise in Mexico and India and
                                   the lack of reliable assessments. Dr Srinivas especially
                                   illustrated the case of Lebanon where to increase the penetration
                                   of solar technologies attractive financial schemes like loans at
                                   0% interest rates with payback period of up to 5 years have been
                                   made available.


Mr Tarun Kapoor, Joint Secretory, MNRE, launched the Online
Tool for evaluating the basic cost & size of systems for various
renewable energy based technologies which can be installed in
the hotel premises; this tool has been developed by TERI. Post
launching, he also emphasised on the need for renewable energy
in hospitality sector and the need for commercialization and
sustainability of renewable energy. He gave an example of
Bangalore where their state nodal agency has showed many
successful operating SWH systems and also praised the
awareness amongst people regarding use of renewable energy.
He also highlighted the requirement of improvement in quality of
products based on renewable energy. Mr Kapoor also spoke on
requirement of proper assessment and research before installation
of SWH systems. He stated the equation of success i.e. publicity + quality + planning = more
business + sustainability.

                                 usage of online tool developed as a part of the project for carrying
                                 out the basic costing & system sizing calculations of various
                                 renewable energy based technologies which can be installed in
                                 the available area in the hotel premises. Mr Anand Upadhyay,
                                 Research Associate, TERI, discussed the application of this tool
                                 for renewable energy technologies covering solar water heating
                                 systems, solar thermal concentrators, solar PV systems and biogas
                                 plant. Dr Hina Zia, Fellow, TERI, elaborated on assessment of
                                 energy conservation measures covering usage of artificial
                                 lightening, replacement of normal AC‟s with BEE star rated AC‟s
                                 etc. and also laid emphasis on building designs for new hotels to
make maximum use of natural light, air and ventilation. The tool
gives a basic idea about the size, an approx. cost and payback
period of the system keeping in view the general subsidies of
MNRE that can be availed. The inputs to be provided are location
of the hotel, area available with the hotel for installing the system,
cost of electricity per unit etc. This online tool will help the
hospitality sector in understanding of the sizing of the Solar
Water Heating System, Solar PV system, Steam Generation &
Biogas applications.
The presentation was followed by open discussion where
participants gave their suggestions on improvisation of the online
tools.

                               of using concentrated solar thermal systems in their hotel. Scheffler
                               dishes which have been installed are used to generate steam and hot
                               water. They have installed 2 paraboloid dishes and 8 Scheffler
                               dishes. The system has been installed on the terrace of the building.
                               The steam produced by the system is used for hot water generation
                               and for laundry equipment. The total project cost for the whole
                               system was INR 165 lakh. Out of which INR 30 lakh was recovered
                               from the Government as subsidy making the net cost of the project
                               as INR 135 lakh. The total payback period reported by him was 12
                               years. He also discussed the installation and operational challenges
                               faced, major one being regular cleaning of mirrors.


Mr Sunil Relia from The Leela Group of Hotels focused his
presentation on the need of solar energy for sustainable development,
explaining instances from his own experience. He said that solar
thermal energy is the best way to use solar energy in everyday
applications. He also discussed the SWHS installed at their hotels in
Udaipur, Rajasthan & New Delhi. Around the year average solar
system energy generation of 96 collectors in Udaipur is 4,80,000
Kcals/day and of 32 collectors is 1,60,000 Kcals/day. He reported that
their savings have been more in case of Udaipur installation than in
New Delhi‟s site, however payback period is higher in case of Udaipur
than in Delhi primarily due to high cost of the system in Udaipur.
Reduction of cost over few years has substantially reduced the payback
period. Amongst the constraints faced by them in installing SWHS was space issue in major.
The systems have been working satisfactorily so far and occasional checks and tweaking is
required for better performance.


                            Mr Vikram Bahri of Green Leaf Hotel outlined their efforts to build a
                            sustainable hotel with focus on high quality of life and low
                            environmental footprint. He touched over various technological
                            innovations integrated into the SWHS such as use of solar thermal
                            collectors to produce hot water and also for space cooling; architectural
                            adaptations to minimize interior lighting and HVAC load. Mr Bahri
                            further explained the incorporation of
                            Government policies to further promote
                            the use of renewable energy in the
                            hospitality industry.




Mr N.C. Malhotra from Lemon Tree Hotel shared their
experiences of using Solar Water Heating systems in their hotels.
He said that they had designed the systems themselves and these

have been running efficiently in their hotels. The SWHS installed are giving them favourable
results in terms of hot water & monetary savings.

Session 2: Presentations by industries

                             Mr Puneet Sabharwal from Nogginhaus started with electricity
                             scenario in India. One among some of the key points he mentioned is
                             expectation of electricity price rise by 22% by next year. The focus of
                             his entire presentation was on utilization of solar energy to generate
                             electricity using solar PV technology under which he covered some
                             of the aspects such as; benefits of using solar energy for electricity
                             generation, working method of electrical power generation from
                             solar energy and its areas of application, solar devices and systems,
