Project Background

Woodie’s is a 100% Irish owned chain of DIY outlets, and a subsidiary of the Grafton Group plc. Woodie’s are committed to minimising their environmental impact and with 35 stores in Ireland, sought external expertise to help establish control of energy usage and deliver deep, sustained energy and carbon savings. 

Key Challenges

As a result of the company’s continued growth, it was becoming increasingly challenging to manage energy consumption across the estate and whilst there was already internal commitment to improve, a plan needed to be developed to sustain long term energy and carbon savings. 


Over a two-week period, our consultants undertook surveys of all 35 stores, with each store being provided with an individual report following analysis from our Data Analysts and Engineering Specialists. Following this initial body of work, ETS have supported Woodie’s with the roll-out of LED lighting, remote HVAC controls, and live energy monitoring across all of their stores. ETS continue to use the live energy monitoring data to drive savings with Store Managers, Woodie’s Senior Management team and their Technical Department.
