Objective

Deliverables

  • Report on refrigerated food facility mapping

    A survey will be developed to obtain information on large European refrigerated warehouses and food factories. The survey will be designed to be simple to complete in less than 5 minutes. The survey will collect information on: 1. Location of refrigerated warehouse or food factory. 2. Approximate size of refrigerated facilities. 3. The average and peak electrical input power to the facility. 4. Waste heat generation from the facility. 5. Whether renewable energy resources are currently installed on site. If so, their maximum capacity. 6. Whether RES could potentially be located on site. The survey will be electronic and translated from English into French, German, Spanish, Italian and Bulgarian. Information collected will be collated and displayed graphically using maps to show where in Europe the LAES could be directly applied currently.

  • CryoHub Risks Register Template

    Setting-up of the risks register

  • Report on potential opportunities for Cryohub in Europe

    Using information from WP2.1 and 2.2 it will be possible to identify where the CryoHub concept could be applied.

  • Report of the potential benefits of CryoHub for grid balancing

    Six (6) refrigerated warehouses or food factories will be used to generate case studies and cross-case comparisons which will identify the variability of potential benefits of CryoHub for grid balancing. Other benefits such as operational resilience, security, meeting carbon targets, will also be determined. The case studies will also identify barriers to implementation, including policy barriers. National differences will be highlighted.

  • Report on RES mapping

    A further exercise carried out alongside 2.1 will be to map locations and power outputs of RES close to (less than 1 km) the refrigerated facilities.

  • CryoHub Quality Manual

    Preparation of the CryoHub Quality Manual that will describe the management rules and procedures

  • Report on the barriers to uptake of renewable and low carbon technologies

    Review of relevant literature and research as it relates to organisational change related behaviours, socio-technical transitions and organisational responsiveness to the adoption of renewable energy and other low carbon and energy efficient technologies and practices especially where relevant to the cold storage and food manufacturing sectors

  • Project branding and identity

    A project identity will be created (logo, PowerPoint presentation, project information brochure, posters and banners). The publicity information will be initially produced in English but will be translated into 5 languages (French, German, Spanish, Italian and Bulgarian)

  • Project website

    A multilingual project website will be set up and linked to the partners’ websites
