Supermarkets cutting back on energy bills - Cyprus Mail

THE STATE sector may be moving at a snail’s pace in terms of reducing state buildings’ energy consumption, but more than one supermarket in Cyprus has been getting a specialist energy management system fitted reducing their electricity needs by up to 20 per cent during peak demand hours, according to the system’s manufacturer. 

Outgoing environment commissioner Charalambos Theopemptou said in his parting statements that the state could save millions in heating and electricity bills that could become more efficient “with minimal cost”. 

Local authorities have been taking individual steps towards energy saving, including a recent effort to set up a pilot scheme among 16 municipalities who hope to cut energy consumption by half by converting their street lighting systems to more energy efficient LEDs, with the help of a non-governmental organisation. 

But the Nicosia Acropolis outlet of supermarket chain AlfaMega has already saved 12.5 per cent in energy consumption by installing Powerstar, an energy management system manufactured by EMSc, the manufacturer said in a news statement.

AlfaMega supermarkets are now installing the system in their Limassol and Paphos outlets, EMSc said. 

EMSc said that other supermarkets including Carrefour, Metro, Papantoniou and Olympic have installed the system and have reduced peak time energy consumption by 20 per cent. 

The British engineered system has been used in UK National Health Service Hospitals, British universities and by local authorities in the UK, EMSc says on its website. 

It is manufactured to match site requirements via a voltage optimisation system designed to make equipment more efficient and longer lasting. Manufacturers claim up to 26.1 per cent reduction in energy consumption.
