According to the Department of Energy, multi-site retailers account for 20 percent of all commercial energy expenditures
Manchester, New Hampshire (PRWEB) September 21, 2009
Teletrol Systems, Inc., a leading provider of IT-friendly energy management systems for multi-site retailers, today announced a webinar that will help retail executives, facilities managers and IT leaders understand how to address their most critical energy use challenges.
The webinar will be held on Thursday, September 24 and will feature James Curry, Energy Systems Manager for Advance Auto Parts. Curry will discuss how the retailer saved 56,000-megawatt hours of electricity through a centralized and automated energy management system. STORES Media publisher Rick Gallagher will moderate the webinar, and will be joined by Greg Brewer, Vice President, Multi-Site Retail Business for Teletrol.
"According to the Department of Energy, multi-site retailers account for 20 percent of all commercial energy expenditures," said Greg Brewer. "In many cases, each store in a retail chain manually controls their lighting, heating and cooling and does not routinely optimize energy use by automatically controlling lighting, and adjusting temperatures when the store is closed or being stocked. This scenario multiplied across a number of stores creates a significant opportunity to reduce costs through a centralized energy management system, and we believe retail executives will learn a great deal from the success of Advance Auto Parts that will be shared during the webinar."
A constant challenge for retailers is to improve store operations, the shopper's experience and the bottom line. Advance Auto Parts recognized the opportunity to embrace standards-based energy management technology to optimize their energy use, while simultaneously monitoring, reporting, and tracking this information to improve store operations in the future. In addition to hearing about these benefits, retail executives and facility managers attending this webinar also will better understand how an automated energy management system can reduce energy consumption and store support costs.
By the end of this webinar, participants will understand how to:
- Centrally control energy usage and save 20-30% on costs
- Define success metrics to maximize cost and energy savings
- Focus execution around your people, key processes and flexible technology platforms
- Prioritize the right energy management strategies and supporting tactics for your business
