Denmark’s largest retailer gets ‘smarter’ about energy


Coop Denmark has deployed a new solution to help it reduce energy consumption by 20% by 2020.

The retailer, which has some 1,200 stores, will deploy Honeywell’s software-based energy management solution, Enacto, and up to 20,000 wireless Enacto submeters throughout its stores, providing the retailer with a unified view of energy use across all of its locations.

Honeywell’s connected solutions will enable Coop Denmark to identify opportunities to reduce consumption, lower energy and operational costs, and track returns on energy-saving measures. It will also help the retailer contribute to Denmark’s goal of having the world’s first carbon-neutral capital by 2025. The project is expected to be completed by 2020.

“Energy use comprises a significant portion of our total costs, so we’re always looking for ways to ensure we’re being smarter and more strategic with where and how we’re consuming it. “Today, given the pressures of our industry, coupled with carbon-reduction goals, we’re more mindful than ever of energy consumption,” said Peter Kjærgaard Svendsen, energy manager of Coop Denmark. “Honeywell’s software and energy-saving expertise will help us keep our energy costs in check so we can stay focused on providing the best retail experience for our customers.”

Honeywell will work on the project with local integrator Energidata, which will provide energy audit services to help Coop Denmark identify opportunities to save energy.
