keep products cool, efficiently

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

  • Discuss energy bill charges.
  • Explain the basic operating principles of refrigeration components.
  • Identify key energy efficiency opportunities for each refrigeration component.
  • Describe best practices for operations and maintenance.
  • Identify important energy savings measures to include in any facility improvement action plan.

Who should attend?
Industrial refrigeration technicians, contractors, specialists, system operators, maintenance personnel, design engineers and equipment vendors; production staff; facility owners and managers; and anyone with basic knowledge and interest in industrial refrigeration best practices.

What are the key energy efficiency opportunities in industrial refrigeration? How does each refrigeration component operate? What is that energy bill telling you? During this course, we’ll answer these questions and more. We’ll pay close attention to compressors, condensers, evaporators and control systems. Operations and maintenance best practices will be highlighted, as well as an action plan to implement improvements at any facility.

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).
