SSE Airtricity has announced that it has signed a three-year partnership with Cliste Hospitality to provide energy solutions through its 100% green gas supplies.
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.
