Event description

Description

Sustainability Victoria’s Refrigeration Efficiency Masterclasses are supporting businesses to reduce costs and get the best performance out of their walk-in cool rooms.

Refrigeration equipment is a large contributor to electricity costs for businesses that need to keep food and beverages cool. It is estimated there are over 65,000 walk-in cool rooms in Victoria, potentially using 1.22 GWh per annum of electricity. Victoria’s cool rooms are potentially wasting up to 25% energy. That’s because cool rooms, unlike domestic refrigerators, don’t come with a star rating and rarely come with an operating manual.

Attending a Masterclass will help you avoid many of the design and operating issues that often result in poor reliability and performance, and increased energy consumption.

Sustainability Victoria also offer support to businesses in the way of expert advice, grants and the information needed to cut cut energy and materials costs and improve energy productivity. Find out more at: http://www.sustainability.vic.gov.au/boostingbusinessproductivity.

Topics to be covered

Refrigeration expert Michael Bellstedt of Minus 40 Engineers will draw on his own experience to provide practical real-world examples and relatable insights. The training will incorporate learning tools to make the learning experience hands-on, and include:

  • How to reduce energy costs: often improving simple operational practices with minimal expense can reduce energy costs by 15% or more
  • Tips for working with your refrigeration contractor: insisting on good preventative maintenance will improve equipment reliability, safety, and working environment
  • What to consider when upgrading: improvements in modern refrigeration systems have the potential to reduce energy consumption by 15-40%

Who should attend

Businesses that own, operate and/or maintain walk-in coolrooms will benefit from this session, including:

  • small scale operators (e.g. café owners, butchers)
  • medium users (e.g. supermarkets)
  • larger users (e.g. large food manufacturers and large scale cold storage facilities)

About the trainer
