Development and demonstration of an innovative integrated refrigeration and HVAC system in a recreational complex ice rink.
Author(s) : POIRIER M., PAJANI G., GIGUÈRE D., et al.
This paper presents an innovative system for recreational complex' ice rinks in Canada, which main objective is to reduce the total energy consumption as well as the refrigerant charge and leaks by approximately 50%. This in turn will decrease greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of these buildings by about 50%. Strategies to reduce energy consumption and GHG emissions of these buildings include the recovery of 100% of the energy rejected at the condensers of the refrigeration system, the integration of the refrigeration system with the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning system (HVAC), and the adaptation of the refrigeration system to obtain maximum benefits from Canadian climatic conditions by continuously adjusting the condensing temperature to minimize building energy consumption. The comparison of the new system with the current refrigeration and HVAC systems led to an expected reduction of GHG emissions of 76 000 ton CO2-e in year 2012 in Canada, assuming a penetration in 50% of the new installations.
