In a new collaborative exercise to reduce businesses’ energy expenditures, Hilton Worldwide took part in a Better Buildings Challenge SWAP to share ideas and experience with US grocery store Whole Foods Market.
The Better Buildings Challenge SWAP is an initiative of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) which invited energy management teams at Hilton and Whole Foods Market facilities in San Francisco to tour each other’s businesses and exchange energy savings ideas. Better Buildings Challenge Director Maria Vargas said the programme was designed to see “leading organisations work together to find solutions and identify opportunities to save energy.”
Each team successfully found innovative ways to save energy in the Hilton San Francisco Union Square, a 1.8 million sq. foot hotel and Whole Foods Ocean Avenue, a 25,600 sq. foot grocery store. The results can be seen in a series of short films at http://betterbuildingssolutioncenter.energy.gov/swap.
