LabSYNC Point E-F8
Problem: An excess amount of energy is used by single owner equipment use.
Solution: Share freezer space with neighboring labs to reduce the amount of equipment per lab.
Benefit: Even if only one or two freezers can be eliminated, this saves 2-4 kWh per day or 700-1400 kWh per year.
That’s a savings of $85-170 per year per freezer.
Cost: There may be a time investment to establish a sharing system with other groups.
