Peter Brodribb, M.AIRAH
Best Practice Guide for Energy Efficient Walk-in Cold Rooms and industry update
Brodribb will provide an overview and update on AIRAH’s Best Practice Guide for Energy Efficient Walk-in Cold Rooms, prepared for the Victorian Department of the Environment, Water, Land and Planning (DEWLP). He will also touch on potential incentives available under the Victorian Energy Upgrades scheme in the refrigeration sector including refrigeration display cases, measurement and verification projects, and plans for walk-in cold rooms.
The presentation will also cover key highlights from two recent publications – Cold Hard Facts 2019 and A Study of Waste in the Cold Food Chain and Opportunities for Improvement (set for release around February 2020). The latter publication quantifies the size and location of failures in the cold chain and estimates the extent of food loss and waste, plus the associated environmental and energy use consequences.
Brodribb is a highly experienced energy efficiency and climate change consultant, with over 20 years of global experience in energy technology, products and systems, as well as expertise in the HVAC and refrigerated cold chain industries.
