As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Explain how the latest energy code effects refrigeration design.
  • Describe refrigeration and lighting energy conservation measures that exceed code.
  • Use tools and modeling methods for refrigeration energy conservation measures.
  • Explain energy conservation measure implementation barriers and benefits from the owner’s perspective.

Who should watch?
Supermarket store owners, managers and maintenance personnel; architects; energy engineers; facility managers; energy program implementers; property developers; sales engineer; refrigeration technicians; and anyone with basic knowledge and interest in energy efficiency in supermarkets and refrigeration.

Did you know that refrigeration and lighting account for more than 50 percent of total energy use in the average supermarket? During this webinar, we’ll identify overall energy conservation opportunities in supermarkets, with a primary focus on refrigeration. Our experts will review energy code requirements for refrigeration and reveal energy conservation market barriers and solutions. Roundy’s Supermarkets' energy manager will discuss the barriers he encountered when implementing energy conservation measures, as well as the implementation process. Lastly, since energy modeling is essential to the successful design of an energy-efficient supermarket, we’ll explain several modeling tools.

ComEd® Energy Efficiency Program new construction offering

Building Energy Efficiency
The ComEd Energy Efficiency Program new construction offering provides technical assistance and financial incentives to encourage design teams and building owners to surpass standard practices and exceed energy code requirements. The best time to identify high performance building design strategies and technologies is at the beginning of the design process. Applications must be submitted early in design to qualify for the program (pre-design or schematic design is best).
