British retailer John Lewis Partnership is renewing a deal with UK gas metering firm Energy Assets to help it cut energy use and carbon emissions.
The five year deal of an undisclosed value sees the parent firm of John Lewis and supermarket chain Waitrose buy into smart metering, as it covers Automated Meter Reading (AMR) services.
Five years ago Energy Assets installed nearly 300 John Lewis and Waitrose stores with AMR technology. These let the retailer see how much gas is being used at a particular location to avoid unnecessarily wasting gas.
A spokesman for John Lewis said: “Managing and reducing our energy use is a key part of ensuring we are a responsible and sustainable business. Smart metering provides an effective means of helping us to do this.”
