Waterton Park Hotel in the United Kingdom is an accommodation eco certified by Green Tourism. The team of the hotel is always seeking for new ways to improve the hotel’s efficiency and green credentials, not only to reduce ongoing running costs but also to lower their carbon footprint. They have installed a renewable energy heating system to use the latent heat within the lake to produce hot water and heating. This was first used to heat the swimming pool and after that the showers in the hotel. Waterton Park Hotel installed a few other renewable energy systems and at this point they no longer have to rely on deliveries of costly heating oil!
