Samsonite light up their energy saving.

Global luggage manufacturer & retailer, Samsonite, were looking to undertake an LED re-lamping project for their retail estate in Italy, starting with their flagship store in Milan.

There was a requirement to measure the energy consumption of the lighting circuits in order to validate the project’s ROI by understanding a detailed before & after data set. For this reason, Samsonite engaged UPL, a channel partner of UK manufacturer MeasureMyEnergy, to find the best available solution.

UPL deployed a 12Way MeasureMyEnergy Power Distribution Monitor (PDM) to measure the electrical consumption of the store’s 10 individual lighting circuits. From this, a baseline was determined for comparison, not only of the mains power used by the site but for each individual circuit.

Following installation of the LED lighting, it was easy for Samsonite to track the reduction in kWh consumption via the MeasureMyEnergy GEM Portal as the project unfolded; ultimately to determine a credible forecast of return on their investment.

The MeasureMyEnergy portal empowered Samsonite to prove their energy saving, demonstrating an overall reduction of electrical consumption at their Milan store by 30%. As a result, Samsonite are now able to confidently move the project forward, understanding how to prioritise the other stores within their retail estate & where the fastest return will be found.
