Energy efficient supermarkets - Building Services Engineering

It is important to understand the interaction between different systems in the premise to be able to streamline energy in an optimal way. Here are some examples:

The cooling power requirement in the cooling counters is significantly reduced when installing doors. By optimizing the cooling system, a significant reduction in the electricity requirement is obtained.

Sometimes it is enough to adjust the cooling system's settings to make it run more efficiently, but in many cases the cooling system is oversized, i.e. too large. The cooling system is dimensioned according to the worst possible outdoor climate (hot and humid) that occurs a few times a year. Most of the year, the cooling requirement is thus much lower than what the system is dimensioned to cope with.

The dimensioning of the cooling system and its components has a great impact on the system's energy efficiency over the year and it is important to dimension the components so that you get good performance for the operating conditions that are most common to achieve as high a system efficiency as possible.

The heat from the cooling system can be recovered and used for heating premises and / or heating domestic hot water.

You can create energy-efficient ventilation with heat recovery by using return air instead of outdoor air.
