Working in partnership with technology solution provide Elster EnergyICT, the High Street retailer will roll out new software across 600 UK sites which aims to reduce energy consumption by 20% compared with 2010 levels, as part of its commitment to match targets set by parent company Walmart.


By implementing innovative  software – EnactoTM 9.3 – Asda will be able to examine different assets and equipment at site level, whilst building a clear and concise view of energy usage across the broader estate.


“Elster EnergyICT has a proven track record in helping us deliver tangible energy and cost savings,” said Louise Hall, Energy Manager, Asda. “The EnactoTM 9.3 solution will give us full view of our energy usage across our estate and enable us to continue to manage and reduce our energy consumption.”


A competitive tender resulted in Asda choosing Elster’s EnactoTM 9.3 solution. Using this platform, Asda will be able to pinpoint energy waste and unlock hidden energy consumption patterns. EnactoTM 9.3 is a cloud-hosted platform with built-in intelligence and self-learning capability. It analyses data and alerts energy managers to areas needing attention. The platform learns from the actions taken to prevent unnecessary alarms in the future. Optimum savings can be achieved with EnactoTM’s enhanced, flexible and granular reporting, across any asset or site measurement point.


“We are delighted that Asda has chosen to continue our partnership together,” said Jon Peck, Account Manager, Elster EnergyICT. “Asda recognises the significant energy savings our solutions provide and will continue to build on the foundations we have set for increasing its energy efficiency and achieving its 2020 targets.”
