BWG Foods’ retail development team has been shortlisted for the ‘PwC Sustainable Business Awards’ (Energy projects), which take place at the InterContinental Hotel in Dublin on 21 March.

BWG’s entry, which focusses on ‘how to minimise the energy consumption of refrigeration systems, particularly in the retail convenience industry’, is shortlisted in the Sustainable Project of the Year category.

The concept, which is active in more than 100 BWG sites, is a next generation refrigeration display case that utilises airflow movements to enhance energy efficiency, the group explained.

Intelligent controllers and a monitoring system results in significant improvements in energy consumption delivering an average overall reduction in the store’s energy costs of 25%, while also mitigating and reducing the unnecessary use of electricity, it added.

Environmental awareness 

BWG noted that it developed this new refrigeration system in conjunction with Anglo Irish refrigeration and Wirth Research, an aero dynamics and thermal dynamics specialist firm with a background in Formula 1 racing.

Commenting, Declan Ralph, retail development director, BWG, said, “Research confirms that customers increasingly value environmental sustainability in retail settings and our retailers recognise that committing to a sustainable business demonstrates that awareness of environmental concerns.

“We are delighted to bring this new technology to our retailers as we continue with our proactive efforts to reduce carbon footprint across all facets of our business.”
