ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- Emerson Climate Technologies announced its E2 Facility Management System has delivered significant savings in annual energy and maintenance expenses at ExxonMobil's retail locations across the United States. ExxonMobil has confirmed it is currently experiencing a 10 percent reduction in its electrical expenses at stores equipped with the E2, as previously reported by Convenience Store News.
The E2 Facility Management System is designed and manufactured by Computer Process Controls, a part of Emerson Climate Technologies, and is currently installed in 600 ExxonMobil stores worldwide, with plans to continue the installation of facility management systems globally in new and existing stores throughout the convenience-store chain.
Tim Willingham, director of business development for Computer Process Controls, reported that the energy savings ExxonMobil has experienced total $1.5 million annually, nationwide. "By installing the E2, we were able to work with ExxonMobil to optimize energy-efficiency strategies, reducing annual energy costs in a typical store by an average $3,050," he said.
For this implementation, ExxonMobil won the Convenience Store News 2005 Outstanding Technology Implementation Award, presented at this year’s NACSTech in Nashville, Tenn.
Dimitris Anagnostopoulos, global engineering advisor of ExxonMobil Fuels Marketing, said working with Emerson Climate Technologies has dramatically increased the efficiency of each store.
"We have been able to get a detailed view of our energy usage and achieve efficiency levels we would not have thought possible," he said. "At our current savings rate, the average payback period on the E2 Facility Management System is less than two years."
In addition to reduced energy costs, the E2 Facility Management System provides ExxonMobil with reduced maintenance costs; indoor environment; and new building design for future stores.
