Utilities are one of the highest operating expenses in the convenience and fuel retailing industry. In 2019, NACS partnered with Energy Star, a voluntary program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, to create convenience store-specific resources designed to help the industry reduce energy use and costs.
Convenience retailers can become an Energy Star partner and access benefits like Portfolio Manager, an online tool to measure and track energy and water consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. The tool can help benchmark the performance of one building or a whole portfolio of buildings in a secure online environment.
This report explores the data captured from the NACS Energy Use Survey and highlights potential cost savings from reducing energy use.
