Ladbrokes were keen to improve their energy efficiency in a bid to save energy and money.

They enlisted our help and we initially trialled a Building Management System (BMS) in their Chesterfield store. This focused on controlling the Air Conditioning (AC) and ventilation equipment.




“By working with EIC we were able to identify that our immediate solution was to scrutinise the use of in-store equipment to save energy and carbon. Using EIC’ expert advice and assistance we were able to implement a control strategy and immediately benefited from the energy reduction. To date we’ve chalked up a substantial reduction in energy usage and carbon emissions across the 1,600 UK branches. We’re confident that the system will continue to be a winner, saving carbon and cost for years to come.”

saved in just 4 months



expected annual savings

Due to the nature of the retail business, Ladbrokes wanted to be able to change the strategy in each store so no communication over GPRS was necessary at this time, however the ‘Lad-Mac’ can be fully upgraded as required in the future. Ladbrokes have already saved £121,000 in just 4 months and we estimate they will achieve an annual saving of £338,000.
