Tesco Interactive Energy Management Boards


The UK’s largest retailer is looking to halve its business-wide carbon emissions by 2020 and is using an interactive electronic energy board as part of the initiative. The boards have an interactive touch-screen which can display multiple energy data values on demand. The new boards have been installed in 614 stores since December 2010 and are due to roll out to 900 stores in the UK and Ireland during 2011.

The boards have the potential to save 34,000 tonnes of CO2 per year across Tesco’s UK estate, the equivalent of the annual emissions of over 19,000 medium-sized homes. The introduction of the boards follows Tesco’s £25m investment in the Sustainable Consumption Institute, which alerted the retailer to some of the behavioural implications of trying to grow greener.
