SuperSmart is an EU project to speed up the uptake of more energy-efficient refrigeration, heating and cooling solutions for Europe’s food retail sector by reducing its energy use, lowering its environmental footprint, and increasing its economic benefits.
One of its major aims is to develop the criteria for a future EU Ecolabel for more sustainable and efficient food retail stores. The 2nd Labelling Board Assembly workshop will hence focus on developing the next round of criteria in the area of the building's energy use and environmental factors (buildings, energy management systems, lighting, use of renewable energies etc.)
We welcome the active participation of food retail end-users and operators (technical departments / facility management), building owners / construction companies, engineering companies and contractors, architects and planners, energy & environmental consultants, and HVAC&R system suppliers.
Participants are especially encouraged to provide input to the development of such criteria during the workshop and by expressing their interest in becoming a partner in one of the 3 Expert Panels.
