Dec. 4, 2013: Danfoss Names Winn-Dixie Its EnVisioneer of the Year

Winn-Dixie Benchmarks, Monitors Energy Use, Ensures Food Safety, Reduces Carbon Emissions

December 4, 2013
BALTIMORE — Danfoss has announced that supermarket chain Winn-Dixie is the winner of its fourth annual EnVisioneer of the Year award.

Winn-Dixie, a subsidiary of Bi-Lo Holdings, is using Danfoss AK-SC 255 system controllers integrated with Danfoss Electronically Delivered Services (EDS) to significantly improve store energy use.

Danfoss said its system controller and services enable food retailers to continuously improve stores via energy monitoring and benchmarking, as well as maintain and sustain energy savings. The AK-SC 255 system controller uses intelligent optimization to help users drive down refrigeration, HVAC, lighting, and other operation costs, and features an advanced alarm monitoring system that provides immediate warnings, including refrigerant leak detection, to ensure food safety and improve risk management.

For Winn-Dixie, the program and collaboration with Danfoss has resulted in a reduction of more than 53.4 million kWh over the past two years, which equates to savings of more than $5.3 million. Less energy consumption also means that Winn-Dixie has reduced its annual carbon dioxide emissions in excess of 41,000 metric tons.

“Danfoss launched this program to demonstrate the business value of investing in energy efficiency and environment responsibility,” said John Galyen, president, Danfoss North America. “We congratulate and thank Winn-Dixie for its efforts to advance energy efficient, sustainable solutions that support improved performance and profitability, higher standards, and lower operating costs.”

Launched in 2010, the EnVisioneer of the Year award competition recognizes North American end users, municipalities, building owners, and original equipment manufacturers that have introduced a new product, opened a new facility, or invested in a building or system upgrade within the past 18 months using Danfoss products or solutions to realize significant energy and/or environmental savings. The competition is judged and the winner is chosen by an independent third party.
