Keep it cool

Keep it cool

Research undertaken in 2010 on cooling and refrigerating in supermarkets in the Netherlands has shown that the energy being wasted by open refrigerating and cooling units equals that of the usage of 175000 family homes (in the Netherlands alone).

Supermarkets have been the only industry with growing revenues and profits during the latest economic recession. It is my believe it is unacceptable to allow such waste to occur if conditions are warranting improvement. It is my intention to gather as much support as possible to persuade the industry in any way possible to address this matter.

At the same time many products which do not require cooling or refrigerating are being displayed in cooling devices and cooled merely for marketing purposes It is my believe it is unacceptable to allow such waste to occur.

If you feel similar issues exist in your part of the world please feel free to contact me to combine our efforts to stop this waste. Many organizations operate on a global scale, the waste surely effects all of us so it is therefor I ask for your support.

If we keep it cool, we make it better.

Peace

I have written to the major players in the supermarket industry in the Netherlands asking them to state their policy on these matters. I will post the letter online shortly. Any reply will be posted when received.

Please spread the word.

Ever since i was a little kid I always thought that was a very dumb idea… open fridges… apparently they are trying to refrigerate the whole store.

Refrigerators waste energy, this energy is turned into heat, this is used to heat up the store, where is the waste?

@steven in a perfect world

And yes there are great results being achieved with usage of both, everyday reality however
does not appear to be catching up.

But if you have a revolutionary plan to turn that around i would kindly ask you to enlighten me ;)

Peace and please support http://www.amof.nl

What do you mean in a perfect world? The energy doesn’t disappear, waste energy is virtually always heat. Supermarkets ar artificially heated, therefore energy ‘waste’ from refrigerators contributes to this heating and is not truly wasted.

@ steven
You are right about heat being a waste product of cooling, and you are right about heat being the major waste factor in any other sense however the simplification of your theory does not work in the real world. Would the heat be utilized for heating then you would have a valid point, the reality is that by open fridges you are wasting the cold.

The solution is simple and cheap the benefits are great, but if u you feel that the situation as it is today is fine, you are free to do so. I just hope this is not the case.

Update @ http://www.amof.nl

Jumbo Supermarkets responded with a press release stating that by the end of 2014 cooling and refrigeration equipment will be closed and covered.

The document is in Dutch and I have requested a copy in English which I will upload upon arrival.
Jumbo has about 200 stores so it is a step in the right direction ;)

This course was set by Jumbo end 2010 so I had nothing to do with it ;) but still good to know.

Updated http://www.amof.nl

Came in contact with a product developer for foods company (main supplier of largest chain) in lowlands
he can supply me with detailed info and research on the effects of temperature and cooling devices etc. on shelf life of products. initial information very promising. a lot of research has already been done will publish as soon as i have gone through and chewed on it ;)

Peace and please please pretty please support for A Mighty Ok Feeling http://www.amof.nl

You see Steven, the heat is pumped out into the air and warms the open-air refrigerator, which makes it have to cool itself extra.

Again done some updating onsite http://www.amof.nl, comments and suggestions are welcomed, so is support, so tell all your friends about it and let’s keep it Cool

I have received some information and technical data on energy consumption and pricing of various refrigerating and cooling equipment, I will work on comparisons this weekend.
I also have received a statement from another Dutch supermarket chain, they are communicating the intention to have all stores refitted with closed cooling and refrigerating at the start of 2015. A press release will follow shortly. Again this was not (all) my doing, it however shows there is a growing awareness in the industry so let us use the momentum and try to get the terribly inefficient and wasting open cooling systems out of the stores everywhere.

Peace
