TIPS TO REDUCE THE ELECTRICITY BILL FOR INDUSTRIAL REFRIGERATION
In this post, we will show you how you can save money on the electricity bill of a refrigerated warehouse. For example, firstly, by increasing the thickness of the insulated panels for cold-rooms. Secondly, by increasing the thickness of insulating sheets for floor and cold-room doors and improving energy efficiency in industrial refrigeration.
The electricity price increase will boost the energy bill for refrigerated warehouses and processing plants. It happens due to the cooling equipment’s energy consumption. If we increase the thermal insulation in new buildings, you will need less refrigeration and, therefore, less energy to refrigerate the goods.
The refrigerated warehouse is an essential part of the food distribution chain because it is the most important means of preservation of perishable products.
First of all, let’s take a look at the global refrigeration industry.
REFRIGERATION IS ONE OF THE MOST ENERGY-INTENSIVE OPERATIONS IN THE FOOD AND BEVERAGE SECTOR
Refrigeration is one of the most energy-intensive processes in the food and beverage industry. It takes about 5% of the world’s total energy supply, equivalent to a significant share of the electricity that the world produces. As a result, it significantly impacts the environment and the global economy.
It means that if we could find ways to reduce the amount of energy needed to cool our food and keep it fresh, we would not only reduce the carbon footprint of the refrigeration industry but also save money for consumers. The positive news is that there are a few ways to improve the efficiency of refrigeration systems. In this post, we’ll look at how to increase the thermal insulation of new buildings, which will help us use less electricity and save money.
The refrigeration process involves a large amount of energy, which is why finding ways to reduce energy consumption is essential. For example, we can minimize refrigeration costs by using more efficient cold storage and food processing equipment. Using more energy-efficient equipment will help reduce the cost of refrigeration. The energy efficiency in industrial refrigeration depends on several factors:
- the type of refrigeration system
- the thickness of the wall insulation
Suppose we increase the thermal insulation by increasing the thickness of insulated panels for cold-rooms and insulating sheets for floor and cold-room doors in new buildings. In that case, you will need less refrigeration and, therefore, less energy to refrigerate the goods. The refrigerated warehouse energy consumption is increasing every year. It is because the refrigeration energy cost is directly proportional to the increase in the energy price.
In conclusion, the thickness of the wall insulation is the main factor influencing energy consumption. The energy efficiency in industrial refrigeration depends on the type of refrigeration system and the thickness of the wall insulation.
