Research now being conducted by a global HVAC and refrigeration company holds quite a bit of promise for the commercial food service industry in the UK. However, they are not the only ones that stand to benefit. What Emerson Climate Technologies learns from their work could also prove helpful to the temporary refrigeration sector as well.
Renewable energy holds a lot of promise for changing the way we do things. However, one of the biggest stumbling blocks to large-scale adoption is one of storage. Energy producers need to be able to store excess energy during non-peak periods for later use at peak, whether by battery or some other storage facility.

The project was completed over two weekends to avoid any losses in the catering department.
