Are rising energy costs at your warehouse shrinking profits?

Accounting for about one-seventh of the commercial space in the U.S., warehouses and distribution centers consume over 440 trillion BTUs of energy per year – the equivalent of nearly 4 billion gallons of gas.
Reducing that energy by just 10% would power nearly 1.3 million homes.

Warehouse / Distribution

On the surface, warehouses simply store products – so why should they require much energy? Step inside a distribution center and you’ll find that things are usually on the move. Large spaces with frequent entry/exit, sophisticated equipment, and continuous operations rack up high utility bills.

Warehouse/Distribution center  operators can pursue energy and sustainability initiatives in numerous fashions:

  • Use improved  lighting and HVAC technologies to reduce energy consumption
  • Minimize unconditioned air entering, or conditioned air exiting the building
  • Maximize conveyor system operations
  • Optimize battery charging stations

Additionally, the structure of most warehouse/Distribution facilities provides a unique opportunity for renewable energy:

  • Large, flat, and unencumbered rooftops provide ample space for PV solar panels
  • Favorable economics make energy production a profit center

The timing is ideal to take action:

  • Reduce operating expenses
  • Hedge against rising energy costs
  • Capture time-sensitive incentives

Typical Energy Consumption

  • Heating, cooling, ventilation, and lighting consume nearly 80% of the energy used in a warehouse/DC
  • Computers and office equipment are becoming one of the largest consumers of energy
