Energy saving for restaurants

For restaurants and caterers, saving on business energy can help you concentrate resources on the plate

Save your energy for kitchen and customer

Refrigeration in Restaurants

  • Keep fridge doors closed whenever possible
  • Regularly defrost and clean fridges
    Check that the seals on cold rooms and fridges are intact
  • Keep the condensers and evaporators on your fridges and cooling equipment clean
  • If fridges only store fizzy drinks, turn them off after hours
  • When buying new refrigerators, AA++ rated units have the lowest running costs

40% of the energy you consume goes in the preparation and storage of food

Water management in restaurants

  • Check your water temperature is at 60°C – this keeps water hot and kills bacteria
  • Insulate hot water pipes to reduce heat loss
  • Spray water taps use less water than conventional faucets
  • Fix leaking taps as quickly as possible

33% of your energy cost is spent on heating and hot water
