To help the supplying industry and decision makers analyse threats and opportunities for the natural refrigerant CO2 in European supermarkets, shecco today offers its first market overview 2009. The summary, free to be downloaded from shecco.com, is based on conclusions drawn from several of shecco’s tailor-made market analyses.
In times when economic constraints, consumers’ demands, and legal pressure have mounted to form one of the biggest challenges the retail industry has been facing so far, the need for more sustainable ways of producing, trading, and storing foodstuff has become crucial. Where business-as-usual strategies do not offer a future-proof solution to the climate crisis we are facing today, natural refrigerants have found their way back into supermarkets of tomorrow. Especially CO2, currently making inroads in Scandinavia, has attracted the interest of major retail chains in the EU. Steadily rising numbers of CO2 (R744) transcritical and subcritical installations speak a clear language.
Based on several extensive tailor-made market analyses and partner assessments carried out this and last year, shecco today offers a summary of main policy and industry trends moving the European market for R744 commercial refrigeration systems. The 25-pages overview outlines major legislative initiatives at the EU and national levels with an impact on a wider market uptake of CO2 solutions. Looking at the conditions in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, the UK, Germany, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Spain, and Italy, the summary tries to answer some of the most pressing questions from companies considering to invest in the supply and purchase of R744 supermarket systems. Using publicly available data, but more importantly face-to-face meetings and first-hand research among the industry, the overview provides concrete figures of CO2 installations in the EU today and gives an overview of how many companies are already active or willing to invest in CO2 Technology in the near future.
