The efficiency of refrigeration systems is very sensitive to the evaporating temperature (even a small temperature rise can provide useful savings). This project investigates the potential to reduce energy usage and CO emissions by raising the temperature control set point of cold stores and also by raising the associated evaporating temperatures. The project involved the collection of data from 8 factories producing frozen food. In particular, it included the temperature monitoring of pallets of frozen food as they are transported from a food manufacturing site to cold storage warehouses. This report summarises the results of the temperature monitoring trials and the associated data collection from both the food manufacturers and their logistics service providers. A total of 37 specific energy saving recommendations were made to the host companies involved in the project. These fell into 6 groups of generic recommendations which are described in the document.
