Santa Claus makes all year long and delivers on December 25th all the Christmas toys to all the children in the world. That’s a lot of money for one person who manages thousands of buildings and elves! How much do you think he spends on energy bills and what can he do to reduce his impact on the environment?
Since the transportation of these toys to the children is done by magical reindeer, we will only count the manufacturing of the toys, not the transportation.
✅ The toy market in the world represents about $105 billion (according to Statista) of which 40% are dedicated to Christmas toys (according to Toy Market) – $42 billion.
✅ Let’s assume that the price of energy in the manufacture of a toy represents 5%: Santa’s annual energy bill is therefore $2.1 billion.
✅ Since the toy manufacturing process takes place in buildings around the world with lighting, heating, air conditioning and ventilation, it would be possible without any problem to control them and generate 20% energy savings… about $420 M in savings per year!
And reduce your carbon impact
✅ Santa’s energy bill being 2.1 billion dollars per year and 1 MWh = 150 dollars: Santa would therefore consume 14TWh of energy to make all the Christmas toys.
✅ And 1 MWh = about 200 kg of CO2 on average, so Santa’s toy making would weigh in at 2.8M tons of CO2!
✅ And, by controlling its buildings, EFICIA could have made it reduce its environmental impact by 20% by reducing its energy consumption.
🎁 That is the equivalent of a city of about 56,000 inhabitants (1 average French person emits about 10 tons of CO2/year)
To Santa and all the elves who make toys for children all year round: we can help you generate energy savings without disrupting your business.
