ETS have worked with ALDI since 2012 and were initially contracted for two years to build an energy management system that identified energy conservation measures and optimisation initiatives that would reduce energy consumption. Eighteen months in, ALDI extended the contract and appointed ETS as their National Energy Manager, embracing our full-service offering. Our contract is comprised of the following key components:
- Energy Management Practice and Delivery
- Technical Energy Centre (TEC)
- Energy Conservation Measures
- Asset Verification
- Behavioural Change
The Energy Management System (EnMS) was introduced in 2013 as a new process within ALDI. Working collaboratively with client representatives, ETS helped manage a change of process from a regional to a centralised energy management system, delivering training across departments within an organisation that was experiencing rapid growth. Careful planning was essential to ensuring resources were appropriately deployed across the estate, which covers various geographical locations.
Added Value / Achievements
Since our appointment, we have successfully implemented an ISO50001 accredited energy management system (EnMS) with ongoing recertification support. We have also helped project manage a number of energy saving initiatives which has provided additional savings to the ALDI estate. Alongside the financial savings achieved, our energy management system has helped ALDI win numerous retail environmental, energy related awards and plaudits including the Carbon Trust Award, 2013 – 2014.
