Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) has revealed that more than 90% of the hot water at its 408 bedroom Aloft Hotel will be supplied through energy harnessed from solar panels. Aloft Hotel will become the first hotel in Abu Dhabi to make use of solar energy.

560 solar panels, covering a total area of 2,300 square metres have been installed on the roof of ADNEC Car Park A. These panels heat water for the hotel’s 408 bedrooms, 2 production kitchens, food & beverage outlets, hotel offices and the swimming pool saving an estimated 870 mega watt hours of electricity every year by making use of the infra-red component of sun light to generate energy. The solar panels were manufactured in Germany by WOLF GmbH, a renowned leader in the solar power sector.

Commenting on the project, His Excellency Ali Bin Harmal, Managing Director of ADNEC said, “In line the Abu Dhabi government’s 2030 vision for sustainable economic development, we are following the environmental objectives of the emirate by diversifying our power requirements away from traditional sources of energy. As the world’s most modern exhibition centre, we have a responsibility to lead from the front and this initiative, combined with other power saving programmes underway at ADNEC re-enforces our position as the Middle East’s leading venue.”

Last month, ADNEC introduced a major recycling programme to support the emirate’s recycling agenda. Recycling stations were installed throughout the venue; one month into the programme ADNEC was able to recycle almost 5,000 kilograms of paper, carton, magazine, plastic and aluminum can waste.

As a Vision of W Hotels, Aloft is shaking up the lodging industry with urban-influenced design, accessible technology, style and a social atmosphere. Aloft offers a total sensory experience, with guest rooms featuring loft-like nine-foot ceilings and oversized windows to create a bright, airy environment. The centerpiece of the guest room is the ultra-comfortable signature bed, and large stylish bathrooms complement the guest experience with roomy walk-in showers and amenities created by bliss® spa. Each guest loft is also a combination high-tech office and entertainment center, featuring wireless internet access and a one-stop connectivity solution for multiple electronic gadgetry such as PDAs, cell phones, mp3 players and laptops - all linked to a 42” flat panel LCD ready television for optimal sound and viewing.
