Ricoh Arena reduces energy consumption
The Ricoh Arena uses eSight® to raise awareness of energy management and reduce energy consumption by 15%
Set within a site of more than 40 acres including a 32,000 seat stadium, 15,000 square metre exhibition and conference centre, a bar, hotel, casino and health club, the Ricoh Arena in Coventry is unlike any other development of its kind in the UK. Attracting over one million visitors every year, energy management quickly became a key task for its facilities management team.
The Ricoh Arena required an energy management system capable of capturing energy consumption data across all areas of the site, including over 200 water, gas, electricity and flow meters. The key aim was to monitor all energy usage across the site in order to effectively target and reduce energy consumption.
In the first year of using eSight, the Ricoh Arena has achieved significant energy savings:
• Reduced electricity consumption by 15%
• Reduced gas consumption by 6%
• Reduced water consumption by 13%
