Supermarkets use energy in a variety of ways to ensure that both food and non-food products are maintained at the best possible quality, displayed in the most appealing way and are available to customers in the most comfortable of shopping environments. This often results in different levels of lighting, heating and cooling requirements necessary for, and specific to, different products and areas of the store to ensure the sales opportunity is always optimised. With energy price fluctuations it’s clear that this comes at a significant cost and, with the variety of ways energy is used in the supermarket environment, the task of reducing costs whilst always improving the customer experience if often considered a complex and daunting task.
