LPG for your hospitality business

The energy of choice for hotels, restaurants and catering

Versatile LPG gas is the preferred energy choice for off-grid hospitality businesses.

Gas for hospitality and catering

Reliable and cost-effective energy is a must for hospitality and catering businesses. From large-scale conference venues, hotels and restaurants to guesthouses and mobile caterers, hospitality businesses trust Calor to deliver energy solutions that are effective and efficient, reducing running costs and carbon emissions.

How gas fuels the hospitality sector

LPG heats hotels and spas

Give your hotel guests a warm welcome with LPG. In hotels, where good service and guest comfort are priorities, LPG’s high energy efficiency makes it a cost-effective choice. It heats large, open-plan lobbies, guest bedrooms and pools at Ireland’s leading hotels and resorts.

LPG the lifeline for restaurants and pubs

When it comes to cooking, LPG is the chef’s choice. Fuel your restaurant with LPG and chefs can quickly turnaround tasty meals on an instant, controllable flame. Whether your guests are regulars or about-to-become-regulars, LPG creates a cosy, welcoming environment for drinking and dining. 

LPG offers solutions for mobile caterers

Gas keeps your catering business on the road. If you’re in the mobile catering or street food vending business, a reliable, portable energy supply is a vital ingredient. Many of Ireland’s mobile catering and street food vendors rely on clean, convenient gas to generate electricity for lighting, fridges and microwaves without the noise, soot and smell of diesel generators.

LPG powers in-house laundry operations

With huge volumes handled daily, laundry operations must run like clockwork: after all, guest satisfaction is on the line. An efficient laundry operation is vital to hotels and restaurants. Gas-powered tumble-driers cut energy bills and maintenance costs while shrinking your carbon footprint.


See how the five-star, 187-bedroom Europe Hotel relies on LPG for space heating, to power its laundry and heat its four pools.

Why LPG is first choice for hospitality

Discover all the benefits of LPG for your hospitality business

Whether you run a hotel, restaurant, pub or catering business, the guest experience is paramount. Here’s why you can depend on LPG:

You don’t need us to tell you that in hospitality comfort and service are everything. From keeping your establishment toasty, heating a pool or two, powering your in-house laundry or giving your chefs an instant flame for cooking, LPG does it all.
With gas, you’re assured of a consistent, reliable energy supply for your hotel or restaurant. And using higher efficiency commercial gas boilers means you’ll use less fuel and enjoy lower maintenance costs too.
LPG already has the lowest carbon emissions of all fossil fuels with 11.7% less CO2 per kWh than heating oil. But switch to Futuria gas (our renewable Futuria gas, BioLPG) and you’ll cut your emissions by a whopping 86%.
Guest comfort is a priority and with LPG there’s no unpleasant odour from oil drips or leaks to put your restaurant or hotel guests off their food. Added to which, unlike oil, gas is virtually impossible to steal.
In our experience, most professionals prefer cooking with gas for its speed and even heat distribution. LPG burns with a visible blue flame that can be turned up or down in an instant, making the quick turnaround of tasty meals simple.
