ENERGY MANAGEMENT IMPLEMENTING AN ACTION PLAN

Implementing an action plan


Maintaining control over energy use and making improvements
year by year requires planning and a programme of action. The
action plan below follows a suggested route to success, from the first
step of obtaining top-level commitment, through to the stage where
energy efficiency is an ongoing feature of management culture.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY FOR FOOD RETAILERS

ENERGY MANAGEMENT IMPLEMENTING AN ACTION PLAN

Obtain top-level commitment

1
A successful energy management programme requires a specified person to be responsible for energy. Large groups
may have a designated energy manager, but in smaller groups or single stores this position may be held by a senior
manager or store manager.

Set up an information system


To control energy costs you will need a system for keeping records of the energy use and costs at individual stores.
The system should allow you to compare energy use in stores from one period to another, and between stores. It
should also allow you to assess the performance company-wide.
For further details see GPG 190.
2
Check fuel and electricity supply contracts and tariffs
Big savings may be achieved by changing your supply tariffs or, if you are a large user, obtaining competitive
quotations from the open contract market (restricted until 1998 to electricity supplies costing more than 20 000
a year and gas supplies costing more than 1000).

Tariff and contract savings can make a valuable start to an energy management programme and generate
savings which can be used for investment purposes.
Food stores are in a good position to obtain tariff and contract savings because refrigeration provides a steady
3
demand, which is popular with suppliers.
Seek further cost savings by ensuring that power factor and maximum demand are appropriate for the tariffs used.
Start by holding discussions with your existing suppliers. You can investigate options yourself or bring in specialists.

Inform and motivate staff


Sensible use of buildings and intelligent operation of equipment by staff can save 5% to 10% of energy costs. Staff must
be motivated to reduce usage and they should be aware of techniques to help them achieve savings (see GPG 190).

4
Savings will be maintained only if there is a continuing programme of information, posters and other
initiatives to keep up awareness.
Area and store managers can be motivated by store performance comparisons.
Staff may be motivated by drawing parallels to home energy costs and by the environmental aspects of energy saving.
Evidence of commitment from senior management greatly helps to motivate at all levels.

Assess the performance of stores


An index which relates energy use in a store to its floor area can identify poorly performing stores.
Accepted yardstick figures for energy use and cost are provided in Introduction to energy efficiency in shops and
stores (EEB 3). These figures can also be used to assess the whole estate should you be setting more ambitious
energy-saving targets?
5
Implement programmes of energy-saving measures
Some savings can be made at once through good housekeeping measures, at little or no expense.
Other measures may require time, expertise or money these should be investigated and planned more carefully.
Have one or more representative stores surveyed by in-house staff or specialists options for savings should be costed
and their benefits and savings assessed. A fully costed programme with payback details can then be drawn up.
6
Review progress and revise plans
An overview of energy efficiency achievements should be presented regularly at board level and included in the

company annual report.


Energy targets, investment plans and actions should be reviewed and updated annually.
