dena-Pilot project: "Energieeffizient Handeln (energy-efficiency in retail business) - refurbishment of retail buildings"

The German Energy Agency (dena) is conducting the pilot project. The project, which is being carried out in cooperation with partners from the retail and real estate sectors, aims to feature exemplary and economic refurbishment projects in the retail sector which can be used as a fundament  within the industry. The focus of the pilot project is to show how barriers to building renovation can be solved in favor of better energy efficiency. Additionally, the pilot will demonstrate with concrete examples what economically and ecologically viable concepts for refurbishment in the retail sector could look like.

Technische vs. Politische Hürden in der Kältetechnik

Personensicherheit, Energieeffizienz und Life Cycle Costs sind allgegenwärtige Hürden in der Kältetechnik. Trotz enormen technischen und politischen Bemühungen die Hürden zu nehmen, führen Interessenkonflikte und falsche Anreize allzu oft zu verpassten Chancen für die Anlagenbetreiber. Anhand von Beispielen aus der Praxis, werden verpasste Chancen erläutert.

New frontiers for DC inverter compressors applied in waterloop systems for commercial refrigeration

In latest years the use of waterloop systems in commercial refrigeration has seen a great boost thanks to the use of DC inverter driven compressors that have significantly improve the energy efficiency of this kind of systems. The synergic use of DC inverter driven compressors and electronic expansion valves jointly managed by advanced control systems permit to combine the typical benefits of a waterloop system, such as factory tested plug and play cabinets, flexibility and charge/leaks reduction, with energy efficiency, food quality improvements, regulation stability and prehentive diagnostics.

Commercial Refrigeration Equipment: ISO & EN standards and the Eurovent Industry Recommendation for Air Curtains

This seminar aims to provide the audience with an overview on the standards covering Commercial Refrigeration Equipment and on the benefits for the Commercial Refrigeration Industry. Specifically, it will be pointed out what is a standard and which are the standardisations’ benefits. This presentation will also provide the audience with a clear overview of the ISO/EN standards covering commercial refrigeration equipment (refrigerated display cabinets, commercial beverage coolers, ice-cream freezers, and walk-In cold rooms). The newly published Eurovent Industry Recommendation on air curtains will be also introduced, and the real benefits for walk-in cold rooms using air curtains will be pointed out in an effective and evidence-based way

Developments in Ecodesign/Energy Labelling and energy efficiency of commercial plug-in refrigeration equipment

The European ProCold project is promoting the provision and uptake of energy efficient professional / commercial refrigeration equipment with climate friendly refrigerants. Regular Topten-lists of the most energy efficient products are compiled and made available online. The Ecodesign and Energy Labelling regulations for commercial refrigeration equipment are still under development. The market is nonetheless moving towards more efficient appliances with natural refrigerants. In the presentation the ProCold team will highlight these developments and provide an outlook on upcoming Ecodesign / Energy Label regulations.

ProCold Award Ceremony: European-wide competition for the most energy efficient plug-in refrigeration equipment

The ProCold product competition recognises the most energy efficient plug-in refrigeration appliances with climate friendly refrigerants in Europe in five categories: Vertical chilled storage cabinets, beverage coolers, ice cream freezers, refrigerated supermarket cabinets, refrigerated vending machines. Winners were confirmed through independent laboratory tests according to the latest measurement standards and draft Ecodesign / Energy Label regulations. At Euroshop 2017 the winners will be announced and awarded.
