Lowestoft Based Hotel Katherine awarded grant for Energy Efficiency
Hotel Katherine is a 10-bedroom hotel located in Lowestoft. The hotel has modern facilities whilst maintaining the character of its Victoria heritage. They have recently been awarded grant funding from the Business Energy Efficiency (BEE) Anglia project for the installation of double-glazed windows.
Following an independent energy audit, Hotel Katherine successfully applied for a grant of £5,600. The energy savings gained by implementing this project will amount to 4 tonnes of CO2e per year, plus cost savings of £750. This will support future growth within their business, while working to protect our environment in line with their environmental policy.
“We are very pleased to have received the funding which has helped us to reduce our carbon footprint and provide a better guest experience. It has allowed us to further invest in other energy saving projects such as efficient lighting and heating systems. We thank the BEEA team for guiding us on where we can work towards creating a greener business”
Darren Clement, Proprietor
“I am delighted that we have been able to support Hotel Katherine to enhance their sustainability – both economically and environmentally. The independent audit has given them the assurance that these savings will be achieved.”
Cllr. Richard Rout, Cabinet Member for Environment and Public Protection, Suffolk County Council
