How the Retail Industry Can Unlock $3 Billion in Savings Each Year

read | Share:

With energy costs of about $20 billion per year, the retail industry has the potential to save 15 percent — or a whopping $3 billion — by identifying opportunities to use less energy. 

But managing energy — both supply and demand — is not always simple for large regional and national retailers. In fact, they face a number of challenges given that their business depends on appealing to customers — whether it be with lighting, temperature, open hours and more. 

Fortunately, in today’s competitive energy markets, there are many opportunities for retailers to improve how they purchase energy and manage their consumption. To help retailers reduce their operating expenses, we've published a new, in-depth eGuide. The guide — "Smart Energy Strategies for Large Retail Businesses" — shares a comprehensive energy management approach that can improve in-store comfort and return on investment (ROI) for businesses. Additionally, it covers how to: 

  • Save energy and procure it intelligently

  • Coordinate energy management from a geographic perspective

  • Understand demand charges and peak pricing—and use them to your advantage

  • Choose the right partner for supply-side and demand-side energy management
