Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre Implements Sustainable Hospitality Initiatives

NHCC has consistently placed a strong emphasis on sustainable initiatives as a core value in providing an exceptional hospitality experience for guests.


The hotel has taken a pioneering step by becoming the first to introduce O by Aria LifeWater, a cutting-edge technology that produces water from air and uses remineralization to create pure drinking water, which is bottled in glass.


In an effort to minimize its carbon footprint and enhance efficiency, NHCC has implemented a dual solar power and water heating system, which is the first and only one of its kind in India.


This innovative system can heat up to 4,000 liters of water per day and generate 9 kilowatts of electricity per day, resulting in a considerable reduction in electricity consumption.


"The use of innovative technology to generate water from air will significantly reduce the dependence on groundwater and contribute significantly to the conservation of the environment. We will continue to adopt newer technologies and strive to provide positive hospitality." said Mr. Rubin Cherian, General Manager Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre


NHCC has established a strategic partnership with Orbisk, a company that assists commercial kitchens in reducing food waste and improving their food management practices.


Orbisk utilizes advanced technology to detect and identify the types of food that are being wasted, and then provides guidance to hotel staff on how to improve food consumption practices.


Using its advanced technology, NHCC has taken steps to offset the consumption of a significant amount of groundwater by providing O by Aria LifeWater to the hotel's rooms, restaurants, and coffee shops.


This will result in a yearly offset of approximately 900,000 liters of groundwater. Additionally, the hotel's dual solar system is capable of producing 136 units of electricity per day, which is equivalent to 48,960 kWh of energy per year, enough to heat 4,000 liters of water.


By implementing these measures, the hotel has reduced its carbon dioxide emissions by 34.6 metric tonnes. Furthermore, over the 25-year lifespan of the solar power system, approximately 1,224,000 kWh of energy will be generated, leading to a significant reduction in energy consumption.
