Background

Located in the heart of Buenos Aires, the Sheraton Buenos

Aires Hotel & Convention Center is a landmark for

international travelers.

Its large meeting facilities and services ensure business

travelers and convention attendees have a pleasant

experience.

The 24-story hotel offers 742 tastefully decorated guest

rooms and spacious suites, including five executive floors

fully equipped for business travelers.

The solution

In order to reduce power consumption, different

technologies and products were analyzed. Philips MASTER

LEDspot MR16 10W lamps enabled us to directly replace

4060 lamps in corridors, rooms and common areas without

changing the existing system. This new technology not only

allowed us to achieve energy savings up to 80% at the same

light delivery, but also -because of its duration- allowed us to

increase 12.5 times the replacement period in comparison

to traditional lamps, which automatically translates into a

reduction of maintenance cost, this was an important point

to decide the change.

The challenge

Buenos Aires Sheraton Hotel & Convention Center works

hard on issues related to environmental care, with the

conservation of natural resources and ecology being one of

its main pillars.

Under a social awareness framework, an internal “Green

council” was created, whose goal is analyzing potential

situations that require the implementation of new

technologies that can be measured in terms of quality and

consumption.

We support sustainable development and share the idea of

a world for all focused on future generations.

Benefits

Although installation met the expected technical results, the

most surprising thing was the positive comments received. A

significant stimulus to pursue new challenges was generated.

We seek to optimize the use of this vital resource that

provides us general welfare while trying to achieve the

greatest possible awareness impact among our associates.

This change equates to a saving more than 948,000 kWh,

equivalent to 474 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emission

reduction. To neutralize this emission, 47 forest´s hectares

would be needed.
