Cheshire-based WEMSinternational has announced the thousandth installation of their groundbreaking wireless energy management system. The system is designed to effectively manage energy use across property estates including lighting, air conditioning and heating and can deliver savings of up to 30% off energy bills.

In a year of major growth the company has picked up some high-profile customers such as Mercedes, Boots and HMV. The thousandth installation was delivered to Dunelm Mill in Warrington. The textile business is now applying the technology across all its 90-plus stores.

Peter Kelly, deputy finance director at Dunelm Mill said: “We’re committed to reducing our energy use in-line with our Carbon Reduction Commitment. This also allows us to fulfil our company philosophy of ‘simply value for money’ by passing on the energy savings to our customers by offering exceptional value. We’re delighted with the results that have been achieved so far, saving as much as 26% of energy costs in some stores across the first 30 stores.”

Companies are able to introduce the system into new and refurbished stores. Ivan McKeever, a director at WEMSinternational said: “The wireless system causes little disruption to the fabric of the building, is much cheaper and can be implemented more quickly than conventional wired systems.”

Launched back in 2008, WEMSinternational’s technology can reduce carbon emissions, something which more companies are having to look into after the Government introduced the Carbon Reduction Commitment.
