This Best Practice Guide was prepared within the framework of the COOL-SAVE pro­ject “Development and dissemination of cost-effective strategies to improve energy-efficiency in cooling systems in the food and drink sector”.


It aims is to provide clear technical and financial information on the recommended energy saving strategies for each climate zone. Relevant informa­tion generated during the project has been compiled by technical and economic experts, providing different points of view.

The guide includes a map of grants, at the national level, with information on co-financing the implementation cost of the strategies listed in the guide. The ambition of the project team is to have finalised a concise and concrete document, comprehensible to all the decision-makers in the sector, such as technical or financial directors in food and drink processing companies as well as other concerned stakeholders.
