GPG 312 Invest to Save

Buildings that are too hot or too cold can adverselyaffect the occupants’ comfort levels, morale andproductivity. Saving energy also reduces emissionsof carbon dioxide (CO2), the principal contributorto climate change, and other gases causing airpollution and acid rain.Energy reductions are essential to meet thegovernment’s legally binding target, agreed at Kyoto in 1997, to reduce a basket of greenhousegases by 12.5% on 1990 levels by 2012.


Carbon Trust: How to implement liquid pressure amplification to refrigeration plant

Depending on the size of plant, its operating hours and the cost of electricity, financial savings can be substantial. Generally, the larger the plant, the better the return on investment. On a 300kW plant, energy savings of up to 25% have been seen.


Refrigerants for R22 Retrofits – Refrigerant Replacement Guide

Now that we are in the midst of the R22 phaseout, overtime the need to retrofit R22 systems is sure to rise. Exactly as to when that will happen remains the subject of debate and speculation…


GPG 207 Cost Effective Low Energy Buildings

This Guide provides estates and academic department managers with an overview of key energy and cost issues to consider when planning new build and refurbishment projects. It gives advice on adopting a strategic approach to energy efficiency and on applying the strategy to a project. Energy efficiency measures applied to a range of further and higher education buildings are highlighted in a selection of case studies. Sources of further information and technical guidance are also provided.


ECA769 Commercial Retail Refrigeration

It is estimated that commercial and retail refrigerationuses 16,000 million kWh of electricity per annum in theUK. This results in a cost of £1.3 billion and sevenmillion tonnes of CO2 (MtCO2) emissions1.The proportion of electricity used by commercial andretail refrigeration equipment is significant for most endusers.


Refrigeration energy savings need not be expensive

Refrigeration energy saving need not be expensive. Energy savings of upto 20% can be realised in many refrigeration plant throughactions that require little or no investment.In addition, improving the efficiency and reducing the loadon a refrigeration plant can improve reliability and reducethe likelihood of a breakdown.
