Case - New type of wine cooler with reduced energy consumption
Danish Technological Institute has participated in a R&D project focusing on the development of a new type of wine cooler with reduced energy consumption.
The objective of the project was to develop a new type of cooler that is energy efficient and environmentally friendly, i.e. uses natural refrigerants. The aim was to reduce energy consumption by 25 % compared to existing wine coolers.
The new type of wine cooler developed in the project has a reduced energy consumption of 47 %. The reduction in energy consumption is e.g. due to a new type of compresser which alone provides 36 % of the reduced energy consumption.
