Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

Evolve provides Total green solution

10 March, 2011

Total UK has completed an energy reduction scheme across 245 of its company-owned service stations, helping to reduce annual carbon footprint by more than 1,200 tonnes.

The project, led by energy management experts Evolve Energy, saw a range of building management systems installed to regulate the amount of power supplied to equipment such as heating, air conditioning, refrigerators and forecourt lighting.

The project also provided Total service stations with smart meters, as well as a round-the-clock energy monitoring and call-out service to inspect any faulty equipment.

Through the data it collects, Evolve Energy is able to target where and how further savings can be made.

Neil Fright, managing director of Evolve Energy, said: “Like any retailer with a large estate and high energy consumption levels, many forecourt operators are looking to identify efficiency savings to reduce their operating costs.

“Through a combination of new technology, consultancy and monitoring there is enormous potential to reduce energy bills and carbon footprint within a relatively short timeframe.”
