systems are ageing and inefficient, there is potential to reduce energy consumption by as much as 40%. Limiting infiltration with good sealing and keeping the door closed as often as possible can reduce the load on the cold store. Lighting Lighting is a good place to start when looking to reduce energy costs. Upgrading to LED reduces energy consumption and lowers replacement and maintenance costs given their longer life. If well selected for the application, LED bulbs can show truer, brighter colours, helping to increase sales. In addition, LED lighting doesn’t emit UV light so fresh produce doesn’t age as quickly. Installing the Sensors will help to reduce cost. Ovens Cooking appliances can represent a surprisingly high proportion of total energy use in the food retail sector. Choose well insulated models with double or triple glazed windows. The most efficient models can be as much as 40% more efficient than the market average. Hot water Hot water heating typically accounts for a small percentage of energy consumption in food retail, but there remain some easy opportunities to save money. Ensuring pipes and fittings are well insulated can reduce energy losses by as much as 25%. Reducing the thermostat to the lowest safe, practical temperature is also a good idea. When buying a new hot water system, it’s worth considering a heat pump or solar hot water as these technologies can repay the upfront cost within a few years.

BSBSUS401 Implement and monitor environmentally sustainable work practices RTO No: 21595 | CRICOS Code: 02634E Energy Reduction Goals: By 2026, we will be able to reduce 40% of our carbon footprint through investing in energy-rated appliance and equipment. By 2030, we will be able to switch to solar energy a non-fossil based energy source By 2021, Moonbucks Cafe management, staff and other stakeholders are well aware of our sustainability program in conserving energy. Water Water Conservation Policies: Install water-saving devices in the appropriate places (flow regulators, water flow sensors, self-closing taps, low-flush toilets, etc. Avoid leaving taps open unnecessarily Avoid cleaning with high pressure hoses Eliminate leaks Regularly maintain plumbing fixtures and piping to avoid losses Replace defective seals and repair damage to water pipes Adjust the water flow according to the type of cleaning to be done Do not let water flow while cleaning or rinsing Soak the dirty dishes before placing them in the dishwasher in order to shorten the prewash Fill dishwashers to their maximum capacity to minimise the number of cycles Do not defrost food in water, but leave it to defrost in the air Pre-Rinse Stations Low-flow pre-rinse spray valves are an excellent way to save water and money.
