ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- GridPoint, Inc., presents proven data-driven solutions for achieving sustained, significant energy and operational savings for customers in key retail sectors. Derived by experience gained with industry-leading retail customers, GridPoint has developed a series of sector-specific best practices and packages which have demonstrated predictable savings and ROI, while supporting other sustainability goals.


Over the years, retail facilities have become more complex with the addition of grocery departments, fueling centers, restaurants, and much more. With strained facility management resources, retailers commonly struggle to maintain a lasting reduction in energy and operational costs. Through continued data capture, analysis and smart algorithms, the GridPoint Energy Management System (EMS) delivers on planned savings over time, uncovers previously hidden energy and operational savings opportunities, helps inform facility design, and guide capital utilization.

Sector-specific direct and indirect energy savings examples include:

  • General merchandisers -- 20-24 percent
  • Restaurants -- 10-15 percent
  • Convenience stores -- 15-20 percent
  • Grocery stores -- up to 10 percent

"As customer facility environments become more complex, EMS solutions must keep pace. Today's leading retailers entrust GridPoint to tackle their energy challenges with an EMS based on sophisticated software, extensible hardware, and the right package of services," said GridPoint CEO John Spirtos. "By following our proven methods, customers can be assured of achieving the kinds of savings we've seen with others in their sector."

GridPoint's EMS solution combines GridPoint Energy Manager, a SaaS-based facility networking platform that captures and stores near real-time information about facility environments, with innovative hardware and world class services. In addition, the solutions are designed to easily integrate with existing energy and building management platforms to best leverage existing investments. GridPoint solutions give facility managers easy access to critical information, leading to effective, timely, and cost-saving actions.
