Company: Bennet – Italy

Bennet is an Italian company active in the retail distribution market. It was established in Como at the beginning of 60s’ by Ratti family. Starting from 70s’ they opened stores in almost all Nord Italy.
Now Bennet has 73 stores and 51 owned shopping centers and employs about 8,000 people. The business sustainability is also achieved by more efficient electrical panels and LED lights in each store, which give less power consumption and CO2 emissions.

The customer wanted to test a centralized solution for energy efficiency that would guarantee further efficiency on the modern electrical systems of its supermarkets, characterized by LED lighting and machinery managed by power electronics.

The project

In July 2015 the first 800 A EP-X device was installed in the Bennet supermarket in Sedriano (MI).
The annual energy consumption was about 1,650,000 kWh, with a maximum absorbed power of about 370 kW.

The configuration of the electrical loads present at the site in question at the time of the technical inspection was as follows:

• Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning: 75%
• Inverter Machinery: 10%
• IT devices: 5%
• Electronic lighting: 10%

In the following 6 years, a further 31 EP-X devices were installed on the Bennet sites in Lombardy, Piedmont and
Emilia Romagna.
