Coop, a retail store chain in Denmark reported that it plans to replace 500,000 bulbs and fluorescent lamps at its 1200 stores. The company says that that the installation, which will take place through the end of 2018, is the largest LED installation contract ever in Denmark. The company will replace about 500,000 bulbs and fluorescent lamps in the approximately 1200 stores.
Coop aims to reduce its energy consumption by 20 percent in 2020 compared to 2014. The company expects much of this energy savings to come from the switch to all LED lighting at its stores. The task essentially includes all kinds of lighting in all types of rooms and equipment, for a total of around 500,000 light sources. Nordic Business Light A / S, which the company has chosen as a supplier for the massive LED lighting conversion, is implementing the project.
The scope of the project is expected to be around DKK 100 million (about USD $15.85 Million), according to Coop Energy Manager, Peter Kjærgaard Svendsen. Svendsen said that with the chosen solutions, Coop will not only generate enormous energy savings but will also enhance the customer experience in its shops.
The LED lighting replacement includes all Coop stores including Kvickly, SuperBrugsen, Dagli’Brugsen, Facts, and Irma.
