As with many retailers in the UK, Pets at Home had an estate that was running far from optimal efficiency. With out-dated high bay and fluorescent lighting and minimal control of in-store equipment, there was a clear opportunity to modernise and make the HVACR estate more sustainable.
With animals in store, Pets at Home have strict temperature regulation guidelines, which can be challenging to monitor and maintain. They wanted to increase visibility and control for this critical element of their operation, which is central to their “pets before profit” ethos.
The solution was comprised of two elements, LED lighting and BMS. The outcome was considerable reductions in energy consumption and a notable increase in Pets at Home’s ability to control and monitor stores automatically.
Working with Pets at Home, Energy Management Consultants, Ignite Energy developed a demand reduction solution, made up of two core elements. LED lighting upgrades and control systems that manage in-store assets and optimise savings. Despite being logistically challenging, the two aspects were rolled-out in tandem to reduce disruption while the store was trading.
