In 2018, ESB Smart Energy Services partnered with Aurivo Group, a multipurpose Cooperative with interests across a variety of businesses, including the Homeland Stores and Garden Centres retail chain, dairy production and feed mill.Seeking ways to reduce energy and maintenance costs, as well as improve the employee and shopper experience,the Aurivo Cooperative group tasked Smart Energy Services with delivering a lighting retrofit across 30 Homeland stores, as well as Aurivo’s dairy plant and feed mill.
With multiple locations, the partnership needed a solution that would deliver ongoing savings at scale, and without the need for capital investment.
Sustainability for Aurivo means championing business, communities and the environment in which we work. Efficient use of energy, like this exciting lighting project, helps us to further achieve our Sustainability strategy for the North-west region by working in partnership with ESB and others.”
