Helping retail unlock the potential of energy savings
Raising energy efficiency is a top priority for enterprises, not only from an environmental point of view, but also in terms of expected return and payback times. This is especially relevant for small and medium supermarkets, since they have high energy charges (between 10% and 15% of the total operating costs) and thin profit margins. However, they also have great difficulties in accessing funding.The EU-funded SUPER-HEERO project will make it easier for small and medium supermarkets to access the capital needed to implement energy efficiency strategies and unlock energy savings. It will develop an innovative collaborative and scalable financial scheme based on stakeholder and community engagement through strategies such as gamification and loyalty programmes. Two pilots will be carried out to put in practice the theory developed and with the aim to have the concept further replicated in retail and in other high-energy-demanding sectors.
