The ECOpark Forum will be devoted to energy management and refrigeration in retailing. Besides addressing energy-efficient solutions in individual technologies, such as air conditioning and refrigeration, it will look at holistic approaches that combine different technologies for optimising energy efficiency. There will be a special focus on multi-outlet energy-management and energy-monitoring concepts, including centrally controlled automation of retail outlets. All of this demonstrates the growing impact of digitisation on energy management in retailing.
On the afternoon of 7 March 2017 there will be an award ceremony for the ProCold project, a Europe-wide competition for the most energy-efficient refrigeration equipment in various categories.
Visitors to EuroShop can attend the talks in the ECOpark Forum free of charge and do not have to register in advance. The compact presentations will focus on current developments. Simultaneous interpretation (German/English) will also be available.
The forum will feature innovative solutions and case studies in retailing.
