Delivering energy efficiency in distribution & logistics


BSSEC have been heavily involved in energy efficiency in distribution & logistics for many years, working with numerous clients including Wincanton, Royal Mail, Transport for London, Belfast Harbour.

Large scale distribution and logistics is a growing industry sector, fuelled by e-commerce and developments in technology. The size of distribution centres, combined with the often high levels of automation technology, give many opportunities to achieve significant energy efficiency savings. These opportunities are picked up in our energy audits, which can include detailed business case analysis for each of the recommendations.

We have helped our distribution clients identify and implement a large variety of different efficiency improvements, some low or no cost, others requiring investment. These have included building management improvements, building fabric improvements to reduce heat loss, technical changes to the automation technology and photovoltaic power production.
