Energy Management

Energy in retail operations is an important issue for several reasons. One is simply concerning efficient operations as energy inefficiency is an avoidable misallocation of the organization’s financial resources. Energy is also important to manage for reducing the environmental impact of store operations, as energy use from fossil fuel sources contributes to air pollution, climate change and other adverse environmental impacts. In addition, retail companies are increasingly setting goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions which require both reducing energy consumption and transitioning to low-emission and renewable energy sources.  The RCC’s tools and resources help retail energy managers optimize their programs to reach their goals.
