Minus40 Educational Seminar at Foodtech Brisbane June 26 @ 1pm

 Energy, in the form of electricity and gas, is one of the largest business costs in the food sector. Rapid technology change in the provision of heating, cooling and freezing can substantially reduce these costs, whilst also locking in future-proof systems immune from future regulatory impacts.  These new technologies include CO2 heat pumps to generate high temperature water very efficiently, natural refrigerants that minimize energy use for cooling and freezing, solar power generation integrated with cooling and heating systems, heat recovery systems to re-use energy for hot water generation, heating systems to minimize energy consumption and peak demand, and thermal storage systems and modern control solutions to smooth out peak energy use. This seminar provides an overview of the current state of these technologies and modern control systems that optimize the way these systems interact.  Case study examples will be used to demonstrate the commercial business cases that support the adoption of these technologies individually and in combination, and tips and guidance will be provided on what solutions work best for many common food industries. An overview of available government financial support for these new technologies in QLD and NSW as well as low cost finance options available to support energy efficiency projects will be provided, and examples will be shown how these mechanisms can be combined to achieve projects that are cash positive from a very early date.
