Auckland, New Zealand: A levy introduced by the New Zealand government on the sales of refrigerants with high Global Warming Potential (GWP) has encouraged end-users to overhaul their costly conventional systems and integrate energy-efficient “future proof” systems based on Natural Refrigerants. John Ashton, owner and operator of the New World supermarket, has looked to the U.K. based company Resource Data Management (RDM) to equip his business with a reliable control and monitoring
The project is an excellent demonstration of the capability of RDM systems to control and monitor the latest generation of carbon dioxide-based systems. Importantly, it also shows how RDM systems can be used to integrate refrigeration systems into a store’s wider HVAC and building services system, to provide an easy-to-use platform for controlling and monitoring total store energy use."
As energy costs continue to rise, we believe this ’total energy’ approach will provide the best solution for optimising store performance and minimising energy use – for retail outlets as well as buildings and process industry. RDM systems have the power and flexibility to deliver this. Indeed, as the New Zealand project shows, it is already happening."
