Implementation model: Best Buy's retail load analysis

This implementation model, created by the Retail Industry Leaders Association and the U.S. Department of Energy's Better Buildings Initiative, details an analysis conducted by Best Buy across its stores to understand the load's current energy use, operational context, and opportunities for energy savings.

This five-page report explains how Best Buy has approached a need to reduce energy usage in its retail stores in order to help achieve an aggressive corporate goal set in 2015 to reduce carbon emissions by 45% by 2020. Best Buy's sustainability team identified plug loads (the energy used by products that are powered by means of an ordinary AC plug) as a significant source of energy consumption for the company.

The analysis allowed Best Buy to identify process changes and new technology that, with capital investment, could save Best Buy up to $3 million per year in energy expense if all recommendations were implemented.
