Issued in: 

The primary objectives of this document are to help public and private sector planners, developers and designers, as well as the management and operating staff, in the tourism sector to conceptualize and recommend options for energy systems, design and management, that minimize the consumption of scarce energy resources and reduce the energy system’s environmental impacts. However, the intent of this guide is not to steer the developer to a specific design or technology options, but rather to provide an understanding of the overall significance of the planning, design and management decisions.
