For energy cost focus
Energy cost is one of the biggest expenses in the daily operation of your supermarkets. Therefore, retailers increasingly look to enhance the energy efficiency within the stores. But this is not the only way. Flexibility in energy demand – or smart grid integration – is also part of the Smart Store solution.
Flexibility in cooling demand, connection to district heating/cooling networks and use of surplus compressor capacity are some of the exciting new opportunities that can make your store an energy supplier, adding valuable capacity to the energy network and new revenue streams to your business.
Supermarkets can play a significant role in smart and integrated energy systems. With only modest investments your supermarket can add valuable flexibility to the electricity network. With heat recovery and connection to the district energy network, your stores can even become energy suppliers providing heating to the local community that your store is part of.
