Retailers have a significant opportunity to reduce the energy consumption and associated greenhouse gases of their vast portfolio of locations, to the benefit of both companies and the environment. RILA is committed to helping its members overcome barriers to enhanced energy performance across their building portfolio through its Retail Energy Management program.
RILA is leading a multi-year program to guide energy, carbon, and cost reduction by focusing on two main workstreams to:
- Mainstream leading practices: Developing and administrating a benchmarking program to guide retailers through adoption of the industry leading energy management processes
- Develop next practices: Initiating pilot projects and writing case studies to demonstrate new technologies, systems, or collaborations (possibly internal, or with utilities, landlords, banks, etc.). Pilot projects are selected on the basis of their potential to scale across the retail industry
