Convenience Retail Energy Use Report
Operating an energy-efficient convenience store can help save money and earn recognition from customers by having a positive impact on the community. As convenience retailers aim to reduce overhead in the quest for more efficient operations, energy costs are often ignored as a primary catalyst for reducing expenses.
To help retailers realize the benefits of reducing energy costs, NACS has partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program to create the convenience retail industry’s first and only ENERGY STAR Score.
As part of this effort, NACS and ENERGY STAR launched the NACS Energy Use Survey in 2020 to capture convenience store data necessary for measuring store energy use in these areas:
- General store characteristics such as total square footage, operating hours, store age and store services provided
- The number of energy-using store equipment such as refrigeration units, beverage dispensers and prepared food appliances
- Energy use from utility bills in standardized measurements for electricity and natural gas as well as water use
