With the expected Eskom increases over the next five years, retail service stations are facing reduced profitability and some even closure as profits are continually eroded by rising operating costs. Electricity is one of the costs that can be managed and self generated.

This conference aims to examine best practices in energy efficiency and unpack the options and complexities of generating electricity from renewable energy specifically for retail fuel sites.

  1. 1. TOTAL SUSTAINABLE SERVICE STATION:MISSION:To be a leader in the Petroleum Industry in S.A. adhering to the Globalmovement towards developing environmentally friendly and energy efficientbusiness’s.OBJECTIVE:To ensure that TSA build service stations that are sustainable within theenvironment and are economically viable for both TSA and dealers, taking intoaccount the current status of the Country.OVERVIEW:TSA developed a Sustainable Assessment Tool ( S.B.A.T. ) to evaluateexisting sites highlighting areas where TSA could improve future servicestations. A matrix was developed which recommended areas for improvementin the existing Premier Design.Kim Hockley 1
  2. 2. ELEMENTS OF DESIGN:The elements selected for improvement were based on the S.B.A.T. results,but general consideration was also included to investigate the reduction ofcapital expenditure. ENERGY WATER WASTE AND EMISSIONS MATERIALS BIODIVERSITY MANAGEMENT LOCAL ECONOMY ACCESS EDUCATIONKim Hockley 2TOTAL SUSTAINABLE SERVICE STATION:
  3. 3. Kim Hockley 3TOTAL SUSTAINABLE SERVICE STATION:FINDINGS: ENERGYReduce the overall energy consumption of service stations: Increase the use of daylight in retail, office and preparation areas. Remove canopy feeder section to increase daylight penetration into retail area Use motion sensors in low usage areas Change roof sheeting colour to reduce thermal absorption Ensure that the building envelope is thermally efficient ( Shop fronts ) Use close door refrigeration Use air curtains in all refrigerated areas Convert to gas equipment in kitchen areas Investigate alternatives to HVAC systems
  4. 4. Kim Hockley 4TOTAL SUSTAINABLE SERVICE STATION:FINDINGS: WATERReduce the overall mains water consumption of the service station through: Rainwater harvesting for irrigation purposes. Install infrared taps on basins. WASTE AND EMISSIONSProvide a recycling station for use by the service station as well as the pubic. Implemented with great success. MATERIALSInvestigate the use of alternative materials that have a smaller carbon footprint and costeffective. Removal of PVC. Use of recycled materials
  5. 5. Kim Hockley 5TOTAL SUSTAINABLE SERVICE STATION:FINDINGS: BIODIVERSITYTo develop a landscape matrix for existing and new service stations that focus onclimatic zones Landscape Architect is developing a matrix per climatic zone to ensure future developments arecompliant. MANAGEMENTInvestigate the use of sub-metering to give operators more insight into electrical andwater consumption. Implemented, results to be monitored. LOCAL ECONOMYTo ensure the local community needs and requirements are addressed. Provide a space for local services are marketed. Provide retail space for local promotions
  6. 6. Kim Hockley 6TOTAL SUSTAINABLE SERVICE STATION:FINDINGS: ACCESSExpand the current provision of facilities to include: Postal / Courier Services Prepaid electricity and account payments EDUCATIONIncrease the area for pump attendants to allow room for training and dinning facilities. Implemented, results to be monitored.
  7. 7. Kim Hockley 7TOTAL SUSTAINABLE SERVICE STATION:FINDINGS: COST BENEFITS TO CONVERT TO SUSTAINABLE SERVICE STATIONThe following will have long term savings for the operator Reducing electrical consumption, by way of elevated roofing over retail area, motion sensors inlow usage area, solar geyser, using thermal reducing elements, such as reflective roof sheetingand thermal efficient glazing. Water harvesting has reduce our water consumption by way ofgrey water used for toilet facilities and landscaping. Monthly water and electricity bill at existing design : Average site R35 000 Monthly water and electricity bill at new sustainable design : Average site R 14 500 Percentage cost saving : 59% saving
