Energy performance of industrial cold storage facilities.

Performance énergétique d’installations industrielles d’entreposage frigorifique.

Numéro : pap. n.273

Auteurs : PEARSON A.


The objective of this paper is to facilitate improvements in energy efficiency of cold stores. Over the last twenty five years several studies of energy performance have shown that the operation of a low temperature cold store of an industrial size typically requires about 30kWh per m3 per year but in each study a very large variation in performance is noted, ranging from less than half of the nominal figure to more than five times higher. This paper reviews the previous literature and adds performance data from a number of stores utilising a range of energy saving techniques. Opportunities for improvement in existing facilities are discussed and design guidance for new facilities is provided. The paper concludes with a review of the ways in which store operators can track their energy performance, including methods of justifying additional expenditure on energy saving opportunities.
