Enzo Payonga, Operational Offer Manager, EcoBuilding Division, Schneider Electric Philippines said: “Guest rooms are unoccupied 70% of the time, yet account for up to 80% in hotel energy consumption. Through the Integrated Hotel Solutions and Guest Room Management Solutions, Schneider Electric simplifies complexity with a single integrated platform that ensures hotels are connected, sustainable, comfortable, efficient, and safe, even granting them up to 44% in energy savings. By letting them have full control of their room’s functionalities, hotels are providing their guests with the best personalized hotel room experience using the latest technological innovations without having to worry about excessive energy use."
