Liam completed an energy upgrade to his store. This involved upgrading the refrigeration equipment, replacing over 1,250 light fittings, and installing a more efficient heating system. The works cost €330,800.

As a result of the work, annual savings of €66,336 have been achieved, as well as CO2 emission savings equivalent to removing 88 cars off the roads. The shop is now brighter and more comfortable for customers and for staff.

As part of the project, Ryan’s SuperValu also supported four local community partners and charities. These charities are some of Cork’s most active, working to provide voluntary, community-based support in the heart of Cork. This support enabled these charities to fund upgrades to their heating systems, lighting and wall insulation.

In addition to improved levels of comfort, the charities are now benefiting from savings of €5,200 a year on their energy bills which allows them to use more of their funds directly in the community. Ryan’s SuperValu store in Glanmire was one of 11 Musgrave stores to carry out upgrade works under the Musgrave 2020 Energy Reduction Plan.
