Five-star property Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek has reduced its water-heating costs and carbon foot-print, officials announced.

Water-heating costs were down by 78% and officials attributed the reduction to their renewable water heating system — the Thermodynamic Solar System.

The system combines the technologies of heat pumps and solar thermal collectors.

While the heat pump produces renewable energy, it is vulnerable to corrosion, dust and cannot cope with temperatures above 46° Celsius. The solar collectors operate only during daylight, suffer from overheating in summer and require constant cleaning.

The new system uses the heat pump principle with an additional solar panel, getting past the limitations of both technologies and generates constant heat to produce hot water at a higher performance.

Speaking about the achievement, Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek’s director of engineering, Gopakumar Menon said: “With “climate change” continuing to be a hot global topic, businesses everywhere are taking further actions in practicing corporate social responsibility. As a department head, I have an opportunity to make a big difference by continuously finding measures to help reduce the hotel’s carbon footprint even further in the years to come.”
