Logistics Company Sets Energy Management Goals

February 6, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

Lineage Logistics, a refrigerated warehouse and logistics provider, has signed a contract with Cascade Energy to implement a company-wide, three-year energy management program at all of its 111 facilities.

The program expands on successful pilot projects Cascade and Lineage have completed at select sites that have already garnered significant cost savings.

The partners have learned from their pilot that the following are key elements of an energy management plan:

  • Executive support and commitment
  • Site specific energy goals, with a company-wide target of 10 percent improvement over the next three years and a ten year goal of 25 percent improvement
  • Dedicated roles and responsibilities for program implementation, at each site
  • Program performance monitoring through energy key performance indicators

Cascade’s platform involves energy efficiency software that provides a common interface across all facilities. The platform will incorporate real-time energy use, production and weather data to provide visibility on true energy performance. Cascade will also provide support via onsite energy efficiency tune-ups that identify and implement energy savings opportunities, training on refrigeration system best practices and technical support over the three-year program to help facilitate continuous improvement.
