Retail buildings consume $20 billion in energy each year. If retailers are able to harness the energy efficiencies available by leveraging existing technologies, this consumption could be reduced by $3 billion a year. This paper reviews retail building energy management opportunities, examines applicability of energy management best practices to multiple retail environments, and shares brief examples of retailers who achieved their energy management goals.
The European Union has set an ambitious goal of improving energy efficiency by 20% by 2020. The new Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) offers some best practices on how to identify initiatives with the greatest potential to improve efficiency, how to prioritize efficiency investments, and how to ensure that available incentives are accessed. Key measures include conducting energy audits, designing a data monitoring system, installing smart meters, utilizing industry expertise, and staying on top of national legislation.
