Tesco - Integrated Energy (Cool customers: How a new partnership is saving energy using the Internet of Things)

Description

The National Grid operates with a very narrow generating margin of 5%, and an increasing input of renewable generation systems that do not provide consistent outputs. Stabilising the Grid is a strategic national priority, which is addressed not just from the supply side of energy but from stabilising demand too—so-called Demand Side Responses (DSR).

With supermarkets operating hundreds of thousands of refrigeration units across the country, the refrigeration of food accounts for more than 14% of the UK’s electricity demands at any one time; representing one-third of a typical retailer’s energy cost.
