The Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa (FMR) is a 176-guest room hotel located on Kuredhigadu (Faruna) Island, North Male Atoll, the Republic of Maldives.
The major source of primary energy is diesel and a small portion of solar energy is also used mainly for hot water generation. Due to the high cost of providing energy on the island, CCC was retained to conduct a detailed energy audit as part of the hotel's energy reduction strategy.
The CCC Team carried out a detailed energy audit of the hotel operations, and presented a comprehensive report detailing the hotel’s energy balance, highlighting key areas of inefficiency and also provided suggested solutions for energy reduction measures. The report also evaluated the hotel’s energy consumption pattern, its energy management / accounting practices, the daily load profile and provided a detailed list of opportunities for Energy Performance Indicator improvement.
In addition, the team carried out a comprehensive carbon footprint of the operation of the hotel and identified several options for reduction in emissions as well as carrying out a complete water audit of the premises.
The team established a clear energy baseline and identified clear cases of high-energy usage
Clear recommendations were made on potential energy reduction measures including switching specific air conditioning systems to recommended model that were more efficient, including Heat Pump technology-based AC systems, to a VRV system with one compressor unit and the use of an absorption chiller
A complete Greenhouse Gas assessment was carried encompassing Scope 1, 2 & 3 Emissions. The highest emission sources were identified and linked to energy reduction measures
A comprehensive water audit was carried out, with a calculation of the cost of water being done at the same time. The potential of saving over 25,000 liters of water each day were identified and evaluated
