Creating energy efficient retail stores

Retail logos

BSSEC have been helping to create energy efficient retail stores for many years. We have worked with some of the UKs most well-known retailers, including Primark, Morrisons, Asda, M&S & TK Maxx.

Our work has saved our clients £millions and 10,000s tonnes of CO2. We have achieved  these savings in a variety of ways including identification and assessment of energy saving opportunities, low carbon building design advice, project management and post occupancy studies to verify the effectiveness of the implemented technologies.

Whether you are looking for assistance with new stores or in making existing stores more energy efficient, we can help. We have worked on pioneering low energy flagship stores as well as across a portfolio of existing stores to identify energy saving opportunities.

For more information on our energy efficiency work in the retail sector please see our case studies.
