This is the fourth year Danfoss has hosted the award competition. Winn-Dixie, a subsidiary of Bi-Lo Holdings, the ninth largest conventional supermarket chain in the U.S. based on net sales, is using Danfoss AK-SC 255 system controllers integrated with Danfoss electronically delivered services (EDS) to significantly improve store energy use. 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. Reduced energy consumption also means that Winn-Dixie has decreased its annual carbon dioxide emissions in excess of 41,000 metric tons.
