Implementation of an energy strategy and reduction in energy costs

Issues involved

With a network of over 650 stores in France, our client was seeking support on the implementation of a long-term energy strategy to reduce the average bills in its outlets against a backdrop of rising energy costs.

Solution provided since 2015

GreenFlex has provided its tools for monitoring and controlling retailers’ energy consumption, reducing it sustainably:

  • Regulatory and technological monitoring enabling an energy diagnosis to be conducted, modelling the change and having good practice benchmarks
  • Following an analysis of the existing situation, an action plan led by a GreenFlex expert: an energy manager (negotiation of new energy supplier quotes, user training, assessment of energy consumption, etc.)


  • Energy consumption reduced by 11% without any investment by implementing 54 actions
  • Support with selecting service providers and new technologies: consumption decreased by 20%
  • Financing new equipment
  • 31% decrease in overall consumption, or € 90K per store and per year, i.e. potential savings for all stores of € 58.5 M
