Les capteurs de température des supermarchés se font remettre à leur place

Les chercheurs de l’université Chalmers en Suède ont constaté le mauvais placement des sondes de température dans les vitrines de supermarché, notamment depuis la pose de porte. Leur étude a débouché sur un support de capteur breveté.

Temperatuursensor in koeling supermarkt is vaak verkeerd geplaatst

Onderzoekers van de Zweedse Chalmers University of Technology hebben bij toeval ontdekt dat moderne koelingen voor supermarkten veel meer energie verbruiken dan nodig is, simpelweg omdat de temperatuursensor in de koelingen verkeerd zijn geplaatst. Ze bedachten ook een oplossing.

Study finds cabinet sensors are wrongly placed

​Swedish researchers have found that the incorrect placing of temperature sensors in refrigerated display cabinets with fitted doors is leading to inaccurate control and wasted energy.

Supermarkt kan 5% energie besparen op koeling

Zweedse onderzoekers hebben ontdekt dat supermarktkoelingen die afgesloten zijn met deuren te veel energie verbruiken doordat de thermometer op de verkeerde plek zit. Verplaatsen van de thermometer bespaart gemiddeld 5 procent energie.

Chalmersforskarens fynd – knepet kan spara miljoner

Chalmersdoktoranden Tommie Månsson arbetade med sin avhandling om det komplicerade ämnet energieflexibilitet. Då giorde han en enkel upptäckt – i kylskåp.

Felplacerade termometrar slösar energi i butikskylarna

Nästan alla butiker har nu installerat kyldiskar med dörrar. Nu har forskare vid Chalmers upptäckt att termometrarna i de moderna kylarna sitter fel. Det gör att de förbrukar mer energi än nödvändigt.

Correctly positioned sensors reduce energy bill

This discovery resulted in an EU patent for a sensor holder that enables easy repositioning of the temperature sensor. The repositioning of 6,519 sensors in 454 grocery stores, helped to mitigate approximately 18,900 tons of carbon dioxide.

Discovery by Chalmers researcher saves electricity in grocery stores

While researching the potential of refrigerators to serve as a buffer for thermal energy storage, Tommie Månsson discovered that temperature sensors are systematically placed wrong, leading to avoidable high energy consumption.

Refrigerators in Swedish grocery stores consume unnecessary high amount of energy

More than 3000 Swedish supermarkets spend too much money on electricity due to wrongly positioned temperature sensors. ChillServices will tackle this problem with their innovative solution.

Temperature sensors in the right place save energy in the fridge

Correct positioning of sensors in refrigerators saves energy in grocery stores. This discovery was made by a researcher at Chalmers University, while researching something completely different.

Termometer på rätt plats sparar energi i kyl

Att ha termometern på rätt ställe i kyldiskar sparar energi i livsmedelsbutiker. Men ofta sitter termometern fel. Den upptäckten gjorde en forskare på Chalmers oplanerat, i samband med en studie av något helt annat.

A simple sensor holder can reduce electricity consumption by five percent.

The holder has already been launched and is now sold via ChillServices. Until now, the solution has only been implemented in stores in Germany, where the interest is high, but the demand for it is worldwide.

Simple invention saves energy in grocery stores

Grocery stores consume more energy than necessary. A discovery made by researchers at Chalmers can help to improve energy efficiency in more than 3000 Swedish grocery stores.

Supermarkets as batteries in smart grids

Tommie Månsson, a soon to be PhD at the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, investigated the potential of using supermarkets and their cooling systems to balance the electricity grid.

Supermarket innovation to ‘cool’ the energy consumption​

ChillServices piloted its technology in 50 supermarkets (1000 cabinets) in cooperation with the most energy efficient supermarket chain in Germany.

Cool innovation for energy saving in supermarkets

Refrigeration accounts for almost 50% of the total energy consumption in supermarkets. ChillServices seek to change that by saving around 3 to 5 percent with easy implemented measures.

The simple but smart invention that can increase energy efficiency in grocery stores

Researchers from Chalmers have developed a new technology that can reduce energy consumption in grocery stores by 3-5 percent.
