LISBON, Portugal--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The five-star Corinthia Hotel Lisbon was named winner of the Western Europe Region Energy Project of the Year for 2013, for its outstanding energy efficient hotel project.

This year the annual AAE conference took place in Washington, DC, on September 24, where Pedro Ferreira, engineer at Corinthia Hotel Lisbon, accepted the Award on behalf of the Hotel.
Reuben Mifsud, General Manager of the Corinthia Hotel Lisbon, said, “It is an honor for us to be selected by such a distinguished panel of judges to be named Western Europe Region Energy Project of the Year for 2013. This award is the result of a revolutionary energy concept implemented in the Hotel five years ago, in which we have always believed in, and at this point has become a reality. This project combines our commitment to reduce our CO2 footprint with our goal to achieve energy efficiency.” During the first half of 2013, Corinthia Lisbon reduced 25% of its energy consumption, which corresponds to 600.000 kWh and 290 tons of CO2.
