Eleven 2.7 million kWh of energy…

BEST’s flagship partner in Denmark – IQ Energy Nordic – have forged a remarkable relationship with a huge player in the local convenience store market. Working closely with Reitan Group, they have orchestrated a 120-store roll-out of Eniscope – the world’s most complete energy monitoring system.

The result? A huge saving of 2,700,000 kWh and over 864 tonnes of carbon dioxide. Watch how the project unfolded in the video (RIGHT) or read on.

The context

Reitan hold the license to operate 7-Eleven in Denmark and, as such, control all stores across the country.

Reitan have been working with BEST partner IQ Energy Nordic. One of BEST’s longest established and most trusted partners, IQ Energy is led by Jesper Kjærulff and Frank Schyberg; supported ably by a professional team of energy managers.


Multi-site rollout

With BEST providing additional product, monitoring and technical support wherever required, IQ Energy forged the relationship and took it through Proof of Concept (PoC) to a full multi-site rollout.

Why did they seek an energy management solution?

Reitan were experiencing three key drivers that pushed them to seek a solution:

  1. Denmark brought in a legal requirement to differentiate between energy types for tax purposes. To fulfil their statutory requirements, they needed an accurate energy monitoring system that could isolate certain energy types consider for ‘comfort’.
  2. The Reitan Group are a responsible organisation, with increasing requirements for CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) reporting and reductions in CO2 emissions. They needed an effective way to bring their energy usage and the associated environmental cost down, across the whole network of stores.
  3. They needed to save money. They were looking for a project that could combine significant savings with a short ROI period.


Demonstrating with a Proof of Concept

The Proof of Concept

Jesper and the team installed Eniscope at four locations considered ‘typical’ of the full portfolio.
