Retail and Energy Consumption Shopping is no longer just about buying the necessities: it has evolved into a multi-faceted mass leisure activity. It’s about browsing and socializing. As every retailer knows, a store’s success depends on projecting the right image. Lighting can play a major role in helping you to do this by creating an ambience that puts the customers in a buying mood and by showing off your merchandise to the best effect.
The greatest energy-saving opportunities include:
Consumers are demanding more action from manufacturers and retailers to protect the environment. As customer loyalty is increasingly linked to companies practicing greater social responsibility, retailers understand how eco-friendly solutions can positively impact customer perception and satisfaction. In response, retailers are taking a closer look at greener solutions that are not only good for the environment, but also reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO).
• Installation of energy efficient lighting including T8 and T5 triphosphor lamps, compact fluorescent lamps and metal halide lamps. Lighting technology today produces greater lux levels utilizing lower wattage lamps.
Among retail operating costs, energy is one of the most controllable and energy management can reduce operating costs. In most cases, a successful energy efficiency program will require retail facilities to make some basic changes in the way they use technology, in the way staff act and how they set internal procedures. For example, a simple change in procedures such as switching off lighting in staff lunchrooms and locker rooms when they are not in use.
• Installation of Building Management Control Systems (BMCS) to control both air conditioning and lighting. BMCS systems allow time schedules and control strategies to be programmed providing control to large plant such as chillers and boilers.
• Installation of efficient lighting devices such as energy save units, passive infrared sensors, photoelectric cells and timers. Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) accounts for some of your highest energy expenses. One can realize savings of between 20 and 70 per cent of operating costs by using and maintaining your system effectively (Consider the efficient use of cooling towers, air to air heat exchangers, air-handling units (AHUs), heat pumps, scheduling or shutting down HVAC equipment for short periods throughout the day • POS innovations addressing conservation, reliability, manageability and serviceability. POS solutions making use of multi-core processors not only improves the processor performance but may also reduce average energy usage as much as 35-40 percent. • Installation of energy efficient devices to air conditioning systems such as electronic expansion valves, variable speed drives and optimizers. Variable-speed drives (VSDs) regulate motor speeds according to the amount of work required. Reducing motor speed by 10 per cent can cut power consumption by 27 per cent • In addition, it is crucial to have a proper maintenance program in place, particularly for cooling towers, which are subject to scale deposits, clogged nozzles, poor airflow and poor pump performance. These factors can diminish performance and raise operating costs by 10 to 25 per cent.

International Case Studies Retailers emphasizing on green retail have witnessed common results in different aspects of their strategy, reporting, visibility and technology. According to a report by research and market intelligence company, Aberdeen, green initiatives of the best in the class retailers have resulted in a 20 percent decrease in energy costs, an 8 percent decrease in their overall logistics and transport costs and a decrease of 5 percent in merchandise costs. They could also muster a 17 percent increase in customer acquisition, 31 percent increase in customer retention and a whopping 69 percent raise in customer satisfaction. They have stated that their practices had helped improve their customer loyalty. To further emphasize on the need to create an increased awareness about corporate social responsibly of the alarming environmental concerns facing the world, this paper covers case studies of some of the excellent green retail initiatives in the international retail arena, with a special focus on energy efficiency measures with respect to lighting, air conditioning, cooling and refrigeration.
to have 100% renewable energy supply, create zero waste , sell products that sustain global resources and environment and reduce GHG ( Green House Gas) emissions from its stores, clubs and distribution centers. Lighting was one of the first avenues of environmental change which Wal-Mart pursued. LED lighting system was installed in the refrigerated cases in more than 450 stores in 2007. Switching from fluorescent lighting to LED’s in the cases, use of motion sensors was made possible. As a result, light gets automatically turned off after a customer leaves an area within the store. The total energy savings for the test installations were significant because LEDs not only use less power than the fluorescents but also generate significantly less heat. The overall energy savings that resulted after switching from uncontrolled T8 fluorescent lighting to occupancy sensor-controlled LED lighting was 92 percent. The savings represent close to three percent of the total-energy usage of the supercentre.
J C Penney – Winning with Energy Management JC Penney was the first retailer to receive the Energy Star Partner award for Energy Management. Over the past five years, JC Penney has invested more than $75 million to install energy management technology, lighting retrofits and high-efficiency HVAC systems in stores nationwide. In 2006, these efforts resulted in elimination of close to 31,000 tons in greenhouse gas emissions by reducing energy use compared with the prior year, even as store operating hours increased by 5 percent and net store square footage increased 2.3 percent.
Macy’s – Demand Response
Wal-Mart – Giant’s Green Initiatives
Macy’s West, which operates 258 premier department stores, chose EnergyConnect’s Share the Power demand response as part of their long term energy innovation plans. EnergyConnect created a tailor-made curtailment plan to reduce energy costs, control the facility and create revenue. As a part of the demand response program, Macy’s reduced electricity consumption (35% of the total energy usage) by dimming accent lights during high energy periods. Accent lighting when dimmed, cools the stores which also helped in lowering the HVAC use.
Global retail giant, Wal-Mart, has set the best practices standard in employing a variety of initiatives to minimize its environmental footprint. In 2007, Wal-Mart unveiled ‘Sustainability 360’ - a company-wide emphasis on taking sustainability beyond reducing the company’s direct environmental footprint to engaging associates, suppliers, communities, and customers.

Annual Electricity Consumption in Commercial Sector(GWh)
Most commercial buildings have energy performance index (EPI1) of 200-400 KWh/sqm/year in India while similar buildings in developed world like North America and Europe have EPI of less than 150 KWh/ sqm/year. Energy conscious building design has been shown to reduce EPI to 100-150 KWh/sqm/year in India. Average energy consumption for a typical commercial building could be bifurcated into the following: √√ HVAC – 55% √√ Lighting – 14% √√ Electronics – 27% √√ Others – 4% EPI - A number quantifying the total metered energy input to the building from all sources over one full year of simulated use, converted to common units of KWh and expressed per sq m of gross interior floor space.

Environmentally sensitive design can make energy savings of the order of 50%. The initial cost increases by 10 – 15%, but payback is obtained in 5 to 7 years. The most effective way to meet the ECBC requirement is to design buildings with appropriate regard to climate and sun. A design not sensitive to sun and climate will have to invest more to meet the minimum ECBC standard. Energy efficiency measures bring about energy savings due to reduced energy consumptions. Exhibit 4: Retail industry shows one of the highest EPI in the above table. If we look at lighting and HVAC (which accounts for nearly 70% of the energy consumption) consumption and costs associated with the same for various retail formats, we can easily appreciate the enormous amount of savings possible through the use of latest technology in lighting and airconditioning in modern retail vis-à-vis traditional options.

In retail outlets, which generally have an average occupancy that is low relative to their peak occupancy, demand-controlled ventilation (DCV) systems provide a cost-effective way to reduce outdoor air flows and the associated energy consumption during periods of low occupancy. Installing high-efficiency roof top unit s (RTUs) rather than standard efficiency models can provide attractive savings. Economizers can be added to many systems, though in humid areas they should be used with differential enthalpy controllers. Ceiling fans can also be added to reduce the need for air conditioning. Humidity control in stores with refrigeration systems can help to prevent condensation and frost buildup. Desiccant dehumidification and heat-recovery systems can provide efficient and effective strategies for handling large humidity loads. Central energy management systems can generate savings by enabling the easy control of multiple RTUs to establish appropriate temperature set points, by turning off equipment at night, and by tracking energy use.

Key measures which can help operate the air-conditioning system energy efficiently: Maintaining your air-conditioning system Regular maintenance checks will help ensure your air conditioning system is operating as efficiently as possible. Energy consumption can increase by as much as 60 per cent as a result of poor maintenance and dirty components.
Energy consumption can increase by as much as air conditioning system 13
60% as a result of poor maintenance of your and dirty components
Your maintenance checklist should include: √√Condensers: Check condensers are unobstructed and always ensure condensing and evaporating devices are clean and well maintained √√Refrigerant charge and leakage: Check the refrigerant charge for air conditioning and comfort cooling plant regularly and examine joints etc for signs of leakage √√Pipe work insulation: Damaged insulation on refrigerant pipe work will consume more energy maintaining the required temperature. Replace any damaged sections and pay specific attention to pipe work located outside a building √√Fans, filters and air ducts. Blocked filters lead to reduced airflow and increased operating costs. Check and clean fans, filters and air ducts and consider fitting gauges that indicate when the replacement of filters is required √√Thermostat calibration: Calibrate thermostats annually to ensure they respond correctly to actual temperatures √√Stay safe: Keep heat exchangers and cooling towers clean and treated to save energy Operating air conditioning system efficiently √√Setting controls correctly and reducing the need for cooling will reduce the operating cost of your air conditioning system √√Turn cooling thermostats up. Set the temperature ‘switch on’ to around 25–27°C and ensure heating switches off at around 19°C so that the two systems do not operate simultaneously √√Match air flow rates to demand. Excessive draughts can cause joint stiffness, headaches and a dry nose and throat. Ask your maintenance technician for options to improve the internal environment √√Switch off unnecessary electrical equipment. Switch off computers and lights when not required √√Let the building cool overnight. Ensure blinds are down at the end of the working day and open secure vents overnight, where possible √√Place heat-emitting equipment in a separate, naturally ventilated area. Colder areas on the north side of buildings are ideal √√Service computer server rooms separately from the main system and cool only to the maximum temperature at which the equipment can operate effectively. Building occupants should be able to override these temperatures but controls should be reset when the area is vacated √√Keep windows closed when air conditioning is on. Blinds can be angled to reduce solar heat gains whilst reflecting light on to walls and ceilings to reduce demand for electric lighting √√Use external shading to reduce the amount of light/heat entering a space. ‘Louvres’ can be retrofitted to buildings to provide shade during summer whilst allowing lower winter sun to penetrate the area
