Embarking further into our mission to create a green and more efficient approach to the way we travel. The recent installation of a combined heat and power (CHP) unit will run the baseline energy (electric and heat) demand using the natural gas supplied to site, supplying energy to our much loved 100-year-old house.
This is technology will allow us produce and provide enough energy to supply the hotel and will also reduce our carbon footprint by 25%, saving 60 tonnes of co2 per year from going into the atmosphere.
Despite natural gas being a fossil fuel, it has a much lower carbon footprint than electricity and road delivered fuels such as oil and LPG, as it is burnt at source using increasingly efficient boilers and takes very little energy to refine from extraction.
By generating electricity on site we will continue to provide a cosy, luxurious yet efficient setting for our guests now and into the future. All the while continuing in our approach in creating a sustainable travel experience.
