Significant increases in energy costs have negatively impacted the profitability of companies with a high consumption of electricity for refrigeration systems.

Particularly in the case of supermarkets, refrigeration systems represent on average more than 40% of total energy consumption, of which about 60% is for low temperature refrigeration systems.

Replacement high efficiency refrigeration systems and the use of advanced control systems can lead to significant savings.

Enerqos’ proposal

  • Selection and installation of high efficiency refrigeration systems (>50kW) on the basis of a detailed analysis of the consumption and requirements of the customer
  • Financial solution customized to the specific requirements of the customer
    • Financing through Enerqos and a sharing of the savings, with a maintenance contract for a period of 3 to 5 years
    • Co-investment by Enerqos and the customer and a sharing of savings, with a maintenance contract for the refrigeration system for a period of 3 to 5 years
