Cliste Hospitality and SSE Airtricity power towards net zero with 100% green gas partnership
Five hotel sites will be supplied with 100% green gas supplies under the partnership
SSE Airtricity is delighted to announce that it has signed a three-year partnership with Cliste Hospitality to provide energy solutions through its 100% green gas supplies. Through this partnership, Cliste Hospitality will become the first hotel group in Ireland to contract a green gas product that will enable the group to transition to net zero emissions.
The partnership between SSE Airtricity and Cliste Hospitality includes five hotel properties – Radisson Blu Hotels in Cork, Limerick and Athlone, the Kilkenny Hibernian Hotel, and the Tullamore Court Hotel – that will receive green gas from 2023 and will be supplied with a total of 36.8GWh of energy. It is expected that this partnership will lead to a reduction of 7,532 tonnes of CO2 per annum for the five Cliste Hospitality properties, which will support the hospitality groups green ambitions.
The collaboration with SSE Airtricity will provide the necessary energy supplies to the hotel group while also enabling Cliste Hospitality to transition to green energy solutions and become more sustainable in its operations.
Klair Neenan, Managing Director of SSE Airtricity said: “SSE Airtricity is delighted to partner with Cliste Hospitality and assist with the target of net zero emissions.
