The International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW) has partnered with Cascade Energy Inc to publish a special edition of Cascade Energy’s Industrial Refrigeration Best Practices Guide.

IARW warehouse members have identified energy as one of their foremost concerns since energy usage is among the highest costs a refrigerated warehouse facility can incur annually. Energy usage also is one of the top unmanaged costs in the refrigerated warehouse industry.

To help members cut energy costs and improve efficiencies and performance in their operations, Cascade Energy was named the Official Energy Efficiency Service Partner of IARW in April 2011.

Through this new partnership, Cascade’s team of experts have responded to member inquiries about energy use, written informative articles, and presented educational sessions at events. Now as a new energy efficiency resource, IARW and Cascade Energy have collaborated to publish a special edition of the Industrial Refrigeration Best Practices Guide.

Offered free of charge to IARW warehouse members, this guide provides an overview of refrigeration best practices, refrigeration system basics, and strategies to decrease energy usage. Written for a range of audiences from system operators and maintenance teams to executive staff, the guide is presented in understandable, user-friendly language. The guide is available to non-members for $50.
