“The absolute flexibility Vickers EMS gives us, together with the precise control over temperatures, is proving to be invaluable”

47% Energy Reduction
In the UK, RS Components have a network of retail trade counters through which they sell thousands of products. These trade counters are normally heated using warm air space heaters, with one exception that uses radiant tube heaters.
The challenge raised by RS Components was to present a solution that would heat their retail spaces to a comfortable level for both staff and customers, while reducing their energy bills. Prior to talking with Vickers their annual energy consumption across their UK sites was over 2.2 million kWh.
The Vickers Effect
Vickers happily took on the challenge. Following an initial installation in their Nottingham branch which saw a reduction in gas consumption of over 47% in just four months, the Vickers Energy Management System was installed in eleven trade counters throughout the country.
Since installation, RS Components have seen their total gas consumption fall by over 46%, a cost saving of over £33K. Carbon output was reduced too, by an impressive 195 tonnes.
