Improving cold chain energy efficiency

September 2019 - August 2022

The ICCEE project (2019-2022) facilitated the food and beverage sector cold chains to undertake energy efficiency measures after carrying out supply chain energy assessments / audits. Why focus on the cold chains of the sector? Because of its significant stages (refrigerated transport, processing and storage) with large energy saving potential.

The project followed a holistic approach, shifting from a single company perspective to the chain assessment, which led to increased opportunities for energy efficiency measures.

Through expert analytical tools and dedicated stakeholder capacity building programmes, the project accelerated turning energy efficiency opportunities into actual investments, with a special focus on supply chains involving European small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
