DEFRA Top 10 Energy Users
The mapping exercise has identified and ranked the top 10 processes (commodity/operation combinations) in terms of the potential to achieve the greatest total improvement in energy usage.
The following table shows the energy used for the top 10 processes and the potential savings that could be achieved:
|Rank||Sector||CO2 Emissisons (‘000ton/yr)||Energy Consumption (GWh/yr)||Saving (%)||Max Saving (GWh/y)||Download Report|
|1||Retail display||3098-6819||5768-12698||30-50||6349||Retail display|
|2||Catering – kitchen refrigeration||2147||3998||30-50||1999||Catering – kitchen refrigeration|
|4||Frozen storage – generic||483||900||20-40||360||Frozen storage – generic|
|5||Blast chilling – (hot) ready meals||16-330||29-614||20-30||184||Blast chilling – (hot) ready meals|
|6||Blast freezing – (hot) potato products||117-223||218-415||20-30||125||Blast freezing – (hot) potato products|
|7||Milk cooling – raw milk on farm||53-169||99-315||20-30||95||Milk cooling – raw milk on farm|
|8||Dairy processing – milk/cheese||134||250||20-30||75||Dairy processing – milk/cheese|
|9||Prepared storage – bulk raw potatoes||77-100||144-187||30||56||Potato storage – bulk raw potatoes|
|10||Primary chilling – meat carcasses||59-77||109-144||20-30||43||Primary chilling – meat carcasses|
