Reducing energy demand using cooling efficiently (REDUCE).

Réduire la demande en énergie en utilisant le refroidissement efficacement (REDUCE).

Numéro : pap. n. 124



UK peak electrical demand and energy prices are rising. Concurrently, there is greater use of intermittent renewable energy and increased requirements for energy storage. Refrigerated storage facilities (RSF) provide opportunities to store heat energy with potential to help balance energy demand with supply; reduce peak demand; facilitate more efficient operation; and reduce both costs and environmental impact. REDUCE field studies investigated impact of load-shedding in RSF on food products; energy consumption and costs; and carbon emissions. Product temperatures met safety and legal limits. Peak tariff cost savings averaged >70% and carbon emission reductions were >10%. REDUCE supports industry confidence in load-shedding which offers financial paybacks to users and reduces environmental impact. REDUCE highlights practical issues and areas for discussion and future research for successful implementation and monitoring of load-shedding.
