Podcasts offer secrets to energy efficient kitchens

Commercial kitchen

The Catering Equipment Suppliers Association (CESA) is launching a special series of carbon management podcasts that provide operators with a best practice guide to energy efficient kitchens.

Developed jointly with CEDA, the FCSI and DECC, the podcasts are designed as training tools for the hospitality market.

The first three cover refrigeration, dishwashers and cooking equipment, giving tips on how to minimise energy consumption.

All are designed as training tools for the hospitality market and aim to help managers educate new kitchen staff. They all last around three minutes and are viewable on tablets and smartphones as well as computer screens.

“The Carbon Trust estimates that better practices and more efficient equipment could save the foodservice industry £250m every year, or 30% of total energy use,” said Simon Frost, chair of CESA. “These podcasts can help caterers reduce their costs significantly.”

The podcasts are part of the Save It! campaign, a collaboration between CESA, DEFRA, the BHA, CEDA and the FCSI, which aims to encourage good energy practice in the kitchen.
