An EMS is the foundation of any retailer’s energy and maintenance reduction strategy. Today’s leading EMSs are designed to provide complete control of building and refrigeration systems including: compressor groups, condensers, walk-ins, HVAC units and lighting. In addition to monitoring and reducing energy usage across equipment types in the store, EMS also provide for a gradual, automated starting-up and stopping of energy usage at the beginning and end of a stores operating hours. These systems also control energy usage to avoid spikes in demand that are costly for both a retailer and the broader energy grid.
Once an EMS is installed the system needs to be optimized for maximum and sustained effectiveness. Our Energy Optimization team is expertly trained and experienced at installing EMS and optimizing new and existing systems. And because we are vendor neutral, we are trained and certified to optimize EMS systems from all leading manufacturers.
