Environmental Attitudes and Energy Initiatives within the Greek Hotel Sector
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes the Greek hoteliers’ attitudes about energy initiatives and their implementation to their facilities. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the interaction between the users’ behaviour and the way energy is consumed in Greek hotels in a long-term period. This paper is part of a wider research project that explores the energy consumption in several Greek hotels. Through interviews with open-ended questions, their responses reveal their opinions and the level of information they have on the existing legislation-Greek and European- on energy use in buildings. Further than that, two scenarios are developed, using the Long Range Energy Alternative Planning software (LEAP). Each one of them exhibits different findings proposing significant but easy to apply alterations to hotels. The first one is the Business as Usual scenario, and it is developed based on the current trends in energy use in hotels. The second is the Policy scenario which is developed based on the existing legislative framework, Greek and EU.
