Franchisor acting as project aggregator Implementation of various energy efficiency measures
A supermarket parent company decides to implement various energy efficiency measures at four of its Québec franchises, which will be tailored to each building.

installing Premium LED lighting products
installing CO2, compressors with 20-t and 80-t loads
installing heat recovery systems for the compressors
Total financial assistance
Benefits of being a project aggregator
By acting as project aggregator, the parent company can combine all its franchisees’ projects into a single project. This enables the franchiser to position itself favorably as a change agent in energy efficiency.
Areas of activity
