Centra is Ireland’s leading convenience retail group, with over 450 locations throughout the country. Located in New Ross, Co. Wexford, the Centra Campile store, with a retail floor area of 255 m2, is renowned for its quality, value, and friendly service.
Like many retailers operating in the global business environment today, Centra Campile faces rising energy costs. Energy efficiency upgrades are a great way to shield a company’s bottom line from these energy costs, but many retailers do not know where to begin.
In August 2013, Centra Campile was preparing an energy-saving revamp of its store. To evaluate the impact of this revamp, the store sought to have an accurate before-and-after picture of its energy-saving measures.
They chose EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics as their energy management solution to identify the energy costs for significant electricity consumers within the store. This allowed for effective planning of energy-efficiency upgrade works.
These works focused heavily on refrigeration, including installing new AHT freezer units, EC fans, LED canopy lights, Weir glass, and deep cleaning of all equipment.
Existing light fittings in the store were also replaced with new energy-efficient light fittings.
EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics enabled Centra Campile to measure and verify the impact of their energy-efficiency works, helping the retailer reduce its electrical wastage and improve its energy efficiency.
Centra Campile utilized the online EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics dashboard to track the cost-benefit of the energy efficiency upgrade work, both site-wide and at the electricity appliance level.
The retailer successfully reduced energy wastage and improved the energy efficiency of equipment within the store, seeing energy use fall by as much as 40% for lighting and close to 50% for refrigeration.
