Saving energy in commercial kitchens
CIBSE has published new guidance on reducing the carbon emissions and energy costs associated with commercial kitchens. ‘TM50: Energy efficiency in commercial kitchens’ has been prepared jointly by CIBSE and the Catering for a Sustainable Future Group. It provides industry-specific guidance and advice on sustainability and how to reduce the energy used in commercial kitchens.
Estimates suggest that the British catering industry uses over 21.6 GWh a year and that energy can be a kitchen’s highest cost after labour.
The guide covers new and existing kitchens.
