Decathlon goes green with Schneider Electric

Decathlon goes green with Schneider Electric

CO2 emissions in buildings can be reduced by almost a third through the technologies introduced by Schneider Electric for Decathlon stores in Croatia as a result of the agreement between the two companies. To improve energy efficiency, building operators must focus on three measures: measurement and monitoring, automation and monitoring, and optimization through analytics.

In the next 40 years, the floor area of ​​the world’s residential and commercial buildings could double, meaning as many new properties as large as Paris will be built every week. Although the majority of these buildings are expected to be constructed in emerging markets, this significant growth affects the entire world. Buildings already account for about 40% of global CO2 emissions, so this expansion must be coordinated with efforts to reduce CO2. The good news is that the tools, sensors, energy management and building management systems that make this possible are already available, and there are already good examples of their application.

Schneider Electric, a leading multinational company in energy management and industrial automation solutions, has provided Decathlon with digital solutions that help the chain monitor the electricity consumption of its stores in Croatia, creating an opportunity for the company to increase energy efficiency. With the help of such technologies, carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by up to 30%, and the investment can pay for itself in an average of up to eight years.

“Realizing the importance of energy efficiency across the Decathlon Group, we are taking measures aimed at improving business sustainability until 2026. In order to contribute to achieving these goals, the Croatian office decided to enter into a strategic partnership with Schneider Electric. Efficient use of electricity, reducing emissions of “The CO2 savings achieved by implementing EcoStruxure energy management solutions give us the opportunity to invest in new, sustainable projects that contribute to a better future.” Slovenia and Head of Sustainability and Circular Economy in Serbia.

In the first phase of the project, measurements were made for the largest consumers providing heating, air conditioning and ventilation (HVAC) services. Based on the data collected, in the second phase it will be revealed which of these areas have higher consumption than planned and where intervention is needed to reduce consumption and optimize resources. The presented technology also allows the processing of data related to energy consumption in warehouses, providing a good basis for making decisions that ensure efficient energy management.

An energy management system (EMS) is needed to measure and monitor energy, among other things to obtain detailed data on the basis of which informed decisions can be made. Automation and monitoring require a building management system (BMS). The advantages of this solution are clearly demonstrated by the fact that by using a building management system, in the case of a building with an average annual consumption of 300 kWh/m2, the consumption can be reduced to 180 kWh/m2.

“To improve energy efficiency, building operators need to focus on three measures: measurement and monitoring, automation and monitoring, and optimization through analytics. Using the Schneider Electric solution, they can combine these three measures, thus optimizing building costs, and complying with EU guidelines to reduce electricity consumption, and contributing to achieving decarbonisation goals. “We are proud that Decathlon has chosen us as its partner in achieving its strategic goals,” added Arthur Vasarevic, CEO of Schneider Electric in Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
