7-Eleven roll out Eniscope across all 120 stores

Who are the Reitan Group?

The Reitan group is one of the largest companies in Scandanavia. Based in Norway, they employ more than 38,000 people across 7 countries and boasted a gross revenue of 89 billion Norwegian krone in 2016 – they own the 7-Eleven operating license.

This BEST partner saved 7-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.

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

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.

The Proof of Concept

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

26,500 kilowatt hours saved
8,480kg of carbon dioxide saved
13% energy and cost savings
Payback period of 19 months
The raw results

In terms of raw figures, the full rollout equates (so far) to some incredible savings.

12% average cost saving
864 tonnes of carbon dioxide saved
2.7m kilowatt hours saved
Following such a considerable success, Reitan are now looking at similar projects for 7-Eleven stores in Sweden and Norway.
