Emerson Climate Technologies has published a white paper addressing the need for incentives for energy-efficient refrigeration scroll compressors.

“The Demand for Energy-Saving Incentives for High Efficiency Scroll Compressors in Walk-In Coolers,” is the second white paper from Emerson. Officials say it represents an ongoing campaign to promote good energy policies.

“Our company and our customers are committed to protecting the environment. As a result, we are reaching out to energy companies and regulatory bodies to make sure that our customers are rewarded and recognized for their environmental efforts,” said David Dunbar, president of the refrigeration division of Emerson Climate Technologies. “By continuing to work together, we can effectively address these important global issues.”

The white paper is intended to encourage utility companies, consortiums and state governments to implement energy-efficiency incentive programs for restaurants and convenience stores that purchase scroll compressor refrigeration equipment. The paper discusses the benefits of using high-efficiency scroll compressors in refrigeration applications by explaining how scroll compressors reduce on-site electricity demand in the food service industry.

“The use of high-efficiency refrigeration equipment is extremely important, due to its reduction in on-site electricity usage,” said Rich Hasselman, energy advisor for Focus on Energy, a Wisconsin public-private partnership offering information and services to encourage energy-efficiency and enhance the environment. “By helping organizations like ours to further emphasize the benefits and savings involved in using energy-efficient scroll compressors, this white paper will hopefully educate decision makers and help encourage widespread adoption of energy efficient equipment.”

The white paper tackles the importance of decreased carbon dioxide emissions related to the use of scroll compressors in walk-in coolers for the food industry. Emerson reports that scroll compressors reduce energy consumption by up to 20 percent. And by using less energy, less fuel is needed, and energy related carbon dioxide emissions, a primary contributor to greenhouse gases, are reduced.
