BAT Zevenaar

BAT Zevenaar – warehousing managed by DHL
Energy monitoring and employee engagement

Provision of on-site electricity and gas consumption data with recording and analysis of temperature and humidity data in site warehousing led to a better strategy for controlling and operating site heating. This was implemented along with an employee engagement programme to manage energy usage better after new warehouse operations during a cold spell increased gas consumption hugely.
