reduction in energy consumption


individual lighting circuits measured

The client

Global luggage manufacturer & retailer, Samsonite, were looking to undertake an LED re-lamping project for their retail estate in Italy, starting with their flagship store in Milan.


The solution

There was a requirement to measure the energy consumption of the lighting circuits in order to validate the project’s ROI by understanding a detailed before & after data set. For this reason, Samsonite engaged UPL, a channel partner of UK manufacturer MY ZeERO, to find the best available solution.

UPL deployed a 12Way MY ZeERO Power Distribution Monitor (PDM) to measure the electrical consumption of the store’s 10 individual lighting circuits. From this, a baseline was determined for comparison, not only of the mains power used by the site but for each individual circuit.

Following installation of the LED lighting, it was easy for Samsonite to track the reduction in kWh consumption via the MY ZeERO GEM Portal as the project unfolded; ultimately to determine a credible forecast of return on their investment.

The results

The MY ZeERO portal empowered Samsonite to prove their energy saving, demonstrating an overall reduction of electrical consumption at their Milan store by 30%. As a result, Samsonite are now able to confidently move the project forward, understanding how to prioritise the other stores within their retail estate & where the fastest return will be found.
