Emerson Climate Technologies has software that allows retailers to monitor energy usage.

Emerson Climate Technologies now offers an extension of its ProAct software suite that allows retailers to monitor energy usage.

Emerson says the software could lower a store’s energy costs by 5 percent to 10 percent.

“With energy costs at near record levels, monitoring energy usage is a top concern for retailers today,” said Bill Coulombe, president of Emerson’s retail solutions division. “These new tools will deliver a complete view of a retailer’s energy usage, enabling them to prioritize improvements and reduce energy usage.”

The software works by predicting each store’s energy use under various conditions. More information is available at visit www. EmersonRetailSolutions.com.
