Intelli-Hood Case Study – Barcelo Sants Hotel


Author: Allison Sternad –

CONTEXT

As a part of a kitchen renovation project, Intelli-Hood demand control kitchen ventilation was installed in March of 2017 to save energy and reduce operational costs. The hotel was originally constructed in 1992. The following are operating conditions of the site:

• Total motor power: 17.5 horsepower

• Daily operating hours: 20

• Days per week: 7

• Weeks per year: 52

• Cost per kilowatt hour: .11 €

RESULTS

The system is performing optimally and is projected to deliver return on investment in under a year.

Below is a sample graph of the varying exhaust fan speed for one day at the hotel:
