Distribution & Warehousing ➞
Warehouses are moving beyond simply providing storage. Many now offer high-tech inventory tracking and value-added services such as quality control testing and repackaging. As warehouses evolve and energy consumption grows, energy efficiency improvements can make a difference for your bottom line.
Warehouses in the U.S. spend an average of $0.70 per square foot on energy. For some, energy costs exceed 10% of total revenue. Heating and lighting—the two largest energy consumers—account for 64% of total warehouse energy use, making them the best targets for energy-saving investments2.
