Convenience stores are a good focus for cooperatives looking for new places to implement efficiency programs. They are candidates for a wide cross-section of technologies, are prevalent across the nation, and are highly energy-intensive. This TechSurveillance article describes the most effective efficiency measures for convenience stores, as well as provides insights into ways to refine existing or future energy efficiency programs.

Value to Electric Cooperatives

Cooperatives are looking for new places to implement efficiency programs. Providing a combination of efficiency strategies, co-ops can help convenience stores realize maximize energy savings by bundling low- and no-cost measures with others that may be costlier but have a big impact. Also, by calibrating programs to reach each of three subsectors of the convenience store market – chains, independents, and new construction – co-ops can maximize the potential impacts of their efficiency programs.
