Abstract [en]

This research focused the CO2 emission and energy consumption pattern of Sri Lanka’s Hotel sector in both present and 2020 scenarios. It was proven from the literature survey that there was no study carried out to assess the current and future CO2 emission in Sri Lankan Hotel sector which is the government main focused area to develop within next 10 years of time. Also there is a long conversation in tourism sector from last few years and understood the importance of Sustainability of tourism business and identified the Green concept, Low carbon emission and less environmental impact are the key attributes to concern for the business sustainability.

It was identified the CO2 emission in 2020 is 404,234 tonnes against the 121,458 tonnes of 2010 which is a huge impact to the environment because of expected growth of tourism sector. Also it was identified the CO2 emission per room in 2020 is 61.26 kg against the same 61.85 kg in 2010. This was slight change compared to the emission per room in 2010 but it will not considerably reduce the impact to the expected environmental pollution. The main energy consumption is from 5-star hotel category, which was contributed to 47% of total energy consumption even though this sector has contributed only 24% of total room capacity of the country in the present scenario of 2010, which was forecasted and identified the contribution to the total CO2 emission is 49.2% in 2020. This analyzing and modeling was done by using LEAP (Long Range Energy Alternative Planning System).
