Entic, a provider of enterprise solutions for reducing utility waste and increasing net operating income, said it has established a track record of making building analytics operational at both the portfolio and the property level. These efforts have been particularly successful at Hilton, a global hospitality company, which has witnessed a 10 percent utility reduction across the portfolio of properties where it has deployed Entic. Hilton is leveraging its partnership with Entic to help achieve its “Travel with Purpose” commitment to cut the brand’s environmental footprint in half by 2030.

Based on early successes using building analytics, Hilton said it undertook a portfolio-wide approach and has begun a scaled rollout of the Entic technology.

With a portfolio of 14 world-class brands comprising of more than 5,300 properties, and a company-wide commitment to sustainability, Hilton is poised to redefine responsible travel and tourism, according to Entic.

“Hilton has used Entic’s analytics platform since 2014 to advance our sustainability initiatives,” said Randy Gaines, Senior Vice President Operations & New Project Development, Hilton. “The platform has helped us consistently witness energy, carbon and cost savings across our portfolio.”

According to the company, success is tied to teamwork: At the building level, Entic’s platform collects accurate, real-time data and delivers powerful analytics, identifying inefficiencies that are wasting energy. Entic’s tools provide optimal visibility beyond what existing building management systems (BMS) are able to achieve. Hilton’s operators then actively and continually leverage Entic’s analytics to ensure properties are operating at peak performance, without negatively impacting guest comfort. 

This initiative aligns with Hilton’s strategic dedication to reduce environmental impact by driving efficiencies, providing value for both owners and local communities. Entic’s solution has been deployed across various geographies and property sizes within the Hilton portfolio, and continues to provide a strong return on investment.
