Brisbane’s Manly Hotel was able to save 873,188 MJ of energy (a $20,000 saving for the  business) by focusing on energy efficiency. This case study highlights where savings were made: most came through the installation of energy-efficient equipment, including power factor correction equipment; upgrades to air conditioners and televisions and replacing halogen globes with LEDs.  The business also reduced hot water temperatures by 10 degrees Celsius.
