Wyndham Destinations: Energy performance

Energy Performance
Cumulative (vs. Baseline)16%
Annual (2017)3%

Better Buildings Challenge Partners strive to decrease portfolio-wide source energy use intensity (EUI) and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline. Wyndham Destinations portfolio consists of more than 60 buildings and 7 million square feet. Since 2008, Wyndham has improved energy performance by 16%.  Energy savings have been achieved by implementing lighting retrofits initially from incandescent to CFL and now from CFL to LED across properties. There have also been HVAC upgrades, sensor control installations, and strict energy awareness programs focused on operations and maintenance as well as low-cost opportunities.


Looking at the percent improvement in energy performance across all facilities can provide insight into how an organization is saving energy. Wyndham has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 10% at more than 50% of its properties. There are six properties that have experienced an increase in Source EUI.  These properties have been targeted for future energy efficiency improvements.


Property-level energy performance metrics, including EUI and percent improvement to date, are critical to track progress over time and identify opportunities for additional energy savings. Wyndham's portfolio consists of properties with a wide range of baseline EUI values, most of which are from 100 to 300 kBtu/sq. ft. The majority of properties have shown energy improvement since 2008. The properties located near or below the 0% axis may present good opportunities for further savings.
