Abstract

This article discusses the economic and environmental feasibility of applying renewable energy technology (RET) to a new hotel building in Amsterdam using the simulation software HOMER. The study shows that applying PV including a surface up to 750m² can be both economical and environmentally feasible and that achieving a Renewable Fraction (RF) of above 75% at the hotel building in Amsterdam goes along with an increasing life cycle cost (LCC). Besides PV, other renewable energy technologies as micro wind-turbine and CHP are investigated.
