PRSM Releases Study on Energy Benchmarking

01/31/2017 |

The study identifies the current benchmarks for energy management practices as well as future opportunities to implement financially attractive energy efficiency projects

The Professional Retail Store Maintenance Association (PRSM), a leader on retail, multi-site facilities management, released its Energy Benchmarking Initiative Study. The report also presents energy management alternatives such as green leases, negotiations at fit-up/renewal and ways to minimize common area maintenance (CAM) charges that help drive energy management activities.

"PRSM Association is becoming a leader in developing ways to improve energy management in retail facilities management (FM) operations," says Bill Yanek, CEO of PRSM. "We are committed to doing so because competent energy management, which includes sustainability, energy efficiency, carbon footprints and social responsibility, is critical to the success of FM operations.

The Energy Benchmarking Initiative Study provides best practices in four core energy use areas — organizational energy management, lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning) and refrigeration. When implemented consistently, these practices, strategies and technologies can simultaneously spur significant cost savings and improve the customer experience, according to PRSM.

PRSM Association’s report, Energy Benchmarking Initiative Study, is available for PRSM members from the group’s Resources Center , which provides management tools for the retail FM and supplier community, along with many other helpful FM tools.
