Telkonet Inc., developer of the EcoSmart energy management platform incorporating patented Recovery Time technology, has announced that Marriott International, with over 3,700 properties in 74 countries, has selected Telkonet as an approved vendor in providing occupancy-based energy management technology throughout all of its hospitality brands worldwide.

"Currently, only about one-fifth of Marriott hotels have an energy management system, a situation that we are aggressively seeking to improve with partners such as Telkonet," says Terry C. Smith, vice president of engineering at Marriott International. “Our global sustainability goals include further reductions in energy and water consumption of 20 percent by 2020, and we believe that Telkonet is poised to help us meet and exceed these energy-reduction initiatives at any Marriott property.”

Telkonet says its technology platform also allows building owners to participate in demand response to balance electricity production and consumption down to the individual EcoSmart intelligent thermostats within each room. By shifting or reducing energy demands from those spaces that are unoccupied to those that are, the EcoSmart system maximizes a property's energy efficiency while eliminating unnecessary power consumption, Telkonet adds.
