Travel firm reduces energy consumption by 24%

10 October 2013

TUI UK & Ireland, part of a leisure travel company, has installed WEMSystem at 61 UK sites. Commissioned against a strict timeline in August-September 2012, the business is on course to achieve an annualised reduction in energy consumption of circa 24%.

"The installation of the WEMS wireless building energy management system has had a fantastic impact on our energy consumption since its implementation," states Chris Logan, Head of Property and Portfolio Change at TUI UK & Ireland. "Over the 61 sites we’ve seen a 23.8%* drop in our consumption.”

At 20 of the sites TUI UK & Ireland deployed voltage optimisation technology at the same time as WEMSystem, which also made a positive contribution to the overall savings figures.

"The experience of dealing with WEMS was seamless from start to finish," says Chris Logan. "We had a series of deadlines to meet, yet with minimum downtime and disruption WEMS integrated flawlessly with our in-house IT and facilities team to deliver a solution that manages all of the sites effectively. Furthermore we started to see energy savings immediately."

*Calculation up to the end of May 2013.
