Every year the prestigious Association of Energy Engineers Conference honors the important achievements being made in energy by individuals and organizations that have demonstrated notable contributions to the profession through individual accomplishments, noteworthy projects, or outstanding corporate energy programs.

This year the annual AAE conference took place in Washington, DC, on September 24, where Pedro Ferreira, engineer at Corinthia Hotel Lisbon, accepted the Award on behalf of the Hotel.

Reuben Mifsud, General Manager of the Corinthia Hotel Lisbon, said, “It is an honor for us to be selected by such a distinguished panel of judges to be named Western Europe Region Energy Project of the Year for 2013. This award is the result of a revolutionary energy concept implemented in the Hotel five years ago, in which we have always believed in, and at this point has become a reality. This project combines our commitment to reduce our CO2 footprint with our goal to achieve energy efficiency.” During the first half of 2013, Corinthia Lisbon reduced 25% of its energy consumption, which corresponds to 600.000 kWh and 290 tons of CO2.

The Corinthia Hotel Lisbon Energy Efficient Hotel project was implemented in partnership with Galp Soluções de Energia and Instituto de Soldadura e Qualidade (ISQ) that developed innovative energy solutions to meet the hotel needs. The water reservoirs, the heat exchangers and the energy management system were designed according to the hotel energy profile.
