The Victorian Hotel Katherine, in Lowestoft has been able to install double glazed windows with the help of a BEE Busines Energy Efficiency grant.
The ten bedroom hotel has modern facilities whilst maintaining the character of its Victoria heritage.
It has recently been awarded grant funding from the Business Energy Efficiency (BEE) Anglia project for the installation of double-glazed windows.
Following an independent energy audit, Hotel Katherine successfully applied for a grant of £5,600. The energy savings gained by implementing this project will amount to 4 tonnes of CO2e per year, plus cost savings of £750.
This will support future growth within the business, while working to protect the environment.
