The Irish supermarket chain Londis has announced the launch of a campaign of energy savings for all its points of sale in Ireland. The financial savings are expected to amount to at least 15% annually (€ 35,000) through the Green Scheme program, which also aims to reduce the environmental impact of Londis’ business activity.
After a tender and an intensive study process, the Irish company Crowley Carbon, a specialist in energy efficiency, has been chosen to lead the program. Londis expect that at least 50 of its outlets will get their hands dirty in the next 12 months if each point reduced its consumption of 100,000 kWh, which is the equivalent of taking 250 cars off Irish roads. Londis’ investment in the project amounts to 12,000 euros, with Crowley Carbon expecting depreciation over two years.
Lucy Ray, Sales Manager of Carbon Crowley commented on the project, saying: “There are many points of energy loss in the stores. We will analyze all the elements: refrigerators, lighting, heating, ovens, boxes, and then we will install individual solutions for each store to demonstrate how each of these improvements can lead to consumption reductions and improved environmental impact. ”
Robert Galster, Project Manager at Londis, also welcomed the news, declaring: “We are very pleased to launch the Green Scheme program. […] We believe we can achieve average savings of 15% per store, and 35 of our distributors have already committed. “
