Granlund Manager has improved the energy efficiency of shopping centres

Granlund Manager has had a prominent role as Citycon’s shopping centres in Finland have succeeded in significantly improving their energy efficiency and functionality. Between 2012 and 2016, their total energy consumption decreased over 25% percent. Granlund Manager has also made the energy monitoring process easier to use.

Citycon and Granlund have long worked together to meet the challenges of building maintenance and energy efficiency. A comprehensive cooperation agreement was signed in 2013 with regard to energy management consulting and property maintenance software. All in all, Granlund Manager is used in 35 shopping centres and other commercial facilities in Finland, Sweden and Estonia.

There has been cooperation in various areas related to energy efficiency, such as energy reporting, continuous monitoring of energy efficiency, remote hourly reading of energy and water consumption and management of related

data transfer arrangements, as well as re-billing of energy costs.

Citycon has been monitoring the energy consumption in its properties for a long time, and Granlund Manager has helped make this process more efficient.

- Granlund Manager has streamlined our energy consumption monitoring process and made our work easier. Now we no longer need to search for information from different sources. Instead we can easily compare data. And all the information is stored in one place, which is a clear advantage,” explains Rebecca Haaranen, Property Manager, Citycon Finland Oy, shopping centres Trio and Iso-Kristiina.
