Sustainable refrigeration on the road to success: the efficient and environmentally friendly ESyCool green energy solution from Viessmann Kühlsysteme GmbH was awarded the German Innovation Prize for Climate and Environment, or IKU (Innovationspreis für Klima und Umwelt) for short, yesterday. The ESyCool green solution, which was developed by Viessmann in cooperation with the ALDI Nord discount retailer, took first place in the category "Process innovations for climate protection".
Joachim Janssen, Co-CEO of the Viessmann Group, received the award in Berlin from Jochen Flasbarth, Secretary of State for Environment.
The new type of refrigeration and heat supply for supermarkets not only significantly reduces energy consumption, but also significantly reduces CO2 emissions. With ESyCool green, so-called zero-emission stores can be realized – one of the major sustainability goals of food retailing.
