Jan. 12, 2011: NRCan Offers Free Energy Efficiency Software for Ice Arenas and Supermarkets
For example, it is possible to provide all the heat needed by these types of buildings, including space heating, ventilation air, and hot water, by simply recovering heat created by the refrigeration system. It is also possible to significantly reduce the number of refrigerant losses, with substantial greenhouse gas savings, by using secondary loops. These and a series of other energy efficiency measures can lead to substantial energy, cost, and greenhouse gas savings for arenas and supermarkets.
The software tool was developed by NRCan’s CanmetENERGY research center with co-funding from the Buildings Division of NRCan’s Office of Energy Efficiency.
