New guidance to help cut 20% off fridge energy bills

THE Carbon Trust has released a guide for end-users to explain some 'no or low cost' steps to help cut refrigeration energy bills by up to 20%.
The guide points out that refrigeration can consume significant amounts of energy - typically accounting for up to 50% of energy costs for businesses such as food supermarkets and those involved in meat, poultry and fish processing. For small shops with refrigerated cabinets the proportion could be over 70%, it says.

The guide, Refrigeration Systems includes a range of tips and advice about refrigerated display cabinets, cold rooms and chillers.

The Carbon Trust is also calling on businesses to cut their energy bills by checking their refrigeration systems and is running a free webinar to help on 20 July. To take part and to view the guide, go to:

Richard Rugg, director of delivery services at the Carbon Trust, said: 'Any business seeking to cut its costs should be looking at its energy bills and for many companies refrigeration accounts for a large part of those energy costs. Savings of up to 20% are possible with simple no and low cost steps. If your business uses refrigeration, it's an opportunity that's too good to miss.'
