Energy Efficiency in Restaurants

The Indian food industry has experienced tremendous growth and continues to expand at a faster pace.The restaurant industry is estimated to grow close to 5 billion by 2021 at a rate of 10% annually. The major problems faced by restaurants are high rentals, electricity and operational cost. When we see across the globe, rent and electricity bill makes around 5% of restaurant monthly revenue. However, in India, the percentage is around 20-25 based on the area. All these difficulties made the restaurants to operate at slim profit margins.

Through a strategic approach towards energy efficiency, around 10 to 20 percent of the reduction in energy consumption would lead to a potential increase in monthly turn-over. We live in a digital era, and the internet of things (IoT) achieves significant reductions in electricity bills.

Energy Efficiency Awareness

We all know that restaurants are large consumers of energy. The reason behind is, when a restaurant consumes more electricity, it is said to have high or premium quality. First and foremost step towards energy efficiency in restaurants is to make them understand that reduce energy use without compromising the high quality of services.


Energy Efficiency Targets

There are numerous factors to be considered before setting up the target. First, one should study where high and low energy has been consumed in your restaurants. Then it is easy to fix up a target or goal for potential reduction in their monthly electricity bills.

In order to make these things possible, we need to put in a lot of manpower, a core team for this energy management process. Then we should plan for frequent audit programs to check where we stand.

Without hassles, can we have any energy efficiency devices?

Well, we all know it is difficult to manage a separate team apart from our business as usual. We are living in a world of internet where Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are making things possible. Though we turned digital, most of the restaurants are not aware of these energy efficiency products.
