    Engineering Tomorrow helps transform supermarkets into “Smart Stores” for demand response

    Like any supermarket chain, Giant Eagle operates in a very competitive marketplace where energy management can be a crucial ingredient to success and profitability. That’s why the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based chain carefully manages its stores’ critical energy consumers: lighting, refrigeration, and HVAC equipment. When Giant Eagle learned its utility—PJM Interconnection—offered a demand response program that provided incentives to reduce electric consumption, they talked to Danfoss to see how they could take advantage of the opportunity.
