In the UK, refrigerated display cabinets use around 5,800 GWh/ year. This is over a third of all the electricity used for refrigeration in the food chain and costs around £500m per year. (source: Carbon Trust)
Reduced energy consumption, lower service costs, and less plant downtime are the primary effects, but consistent use as part of your maintenance programme will maximise plant efficiency reducing electricity costs and reduce the risk of stock and product loss.
Refrigeration display cases rank number one in areas where energy use can be significantly cut.
As part of the Roadmap for Refrigeration, the Carbon Trust identified cleaning and maintenance as the largest area of achieving energy savings in food retail display chillers.
