1. Smart lighting, ventilation, and power systems. Equipment that monitors electric consumption is a smart way to save energy. You can keep track of your usage and then try different ways to lower it. Smart power management systems for air-conditioning and lighting could also help you with energy savings, as well as the airflow management systems for ventilation. What can be measured can also be lowered - knowledge and monitoring are keys to making great savings.
2. Energy-saving equipment. There are a lot of excellent innovations and equipment that challenge old ways of doing things and monitors your energy consumption. They help you keep track of your usage and challenges you and your team to use less energy than ever before. Like choosing the No Pre-Washing™ concept from GRANULDISK for your dirty pots and pans - an excellent example of how you can lower your energy consumption while washing hygienically clean in a matter of minutes. The PowerGranules® does all the hard work, and also uses less water - and less water means that you do not have to use as much energy for heating.
3. Proactive maintenance. Did you know that equipment that has not been cleaned and maintained properly often use more energy than necessary? By being proactive and making sure that the kitchen equipment is served and cleaned regularly you can save energy. Doing so will also extend your equipment’s lifetime, which is great for both the environment and your wallet.
4. Check door seals. Are you sure that all door seals of your equipment are fresh and actually do what they are supposed to? That is, keeping the fridge and freezer sealed tight to remain cool and trapping the heat inside your oven, etc. You can easily check your door seals yourself by placing a small piece of paper between the seal and the door - then try to slide it in and out. Easy? Then the doors are not tight enough and you should have your equipment looked over.
5. Remember to switch everything off. Are you sure that all power is shut off properly at the end of the working day? This will make a big difference when it comes to energy savings. Make sure everyone in your team knows where the switches are so that everybody can help make a difference.
