The first quarter of 2017 has been a good one for EEG, with new contract wins both at home in Lebanon, and abroad.
EEG has been awarded the contract to undertake the energy audit of The Grand Serail in Lebanon. The historic Grand Serail, or Government Palace, is the headquarters of the Prime Minister of Lebanon. EEG will be undertaking an Investment Grade Energy Audit, designed to help the property optimise its overall utilities budget by investigating all energy and water processes and end uses. EEG will also undertake a gap analysis and road map towards a Green Building Certification.
Also in Beirut, following a walk-through energy audit of Le Gray Hotel, EEG has signed an agreement to undertake a complete lighting retrofit of the property. The total annual energy savings are projected to top 460,000 Kwh annually.
In Bahrain, EEG will continue its work with Four Seasons Bahrain Bay Hotel. EEG carried out an energy audit of the property at the end of 2016, and has been awarded the contract to undertake a second field mission focused on assisting the engineering department in the implementation of all the identified Low Cost/No Cost Energy Efficiency Measures. Substantial energy and cost reductions are projected to be met during the course of 2017 with these no cost initiatives.
Finally, in France, EEG will undertake an energy audit update for the Four Seasons George V Hotel Paris. The initial energy audit was completed in 2012, with a number of recommended efficiency measures. In the last 5 years the property has upgraded much of its equipment and infrastructure, and has expanded its outlets. It is also currently undergoing a major SPA expansion and upgrade which will impact on its utilities operations and budgets. EEG’s role will be to undertake an energy audit update which takes into account these changes, and will focus on building a new road map for total utilities optimisation.
