The contract brings EuroSite Power's total contract bookings to £53.5 (US$89.35) million and 3,088 kW electrical capacity.

Investments include The Royal Crescent Hotel in Bath, a portfolio of Hilton hotels, a portfolio of Thistle hotels, the Welcome Break in North London and the Menzies Hotel Group.

Lionel Benjamin, Director - Hotels for Topland Group said: "Keeping our operating costs under control is fundamental and as energy prices continue to rise we needed to find solutions that allow us to manage this risk. EuroSite Power's combination of zero upfront capital cost with discounted pay-as-you-go energy has proven the ideal solution."

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
