Small retail stores not meeting the definition of ‘baseline supermarket’

Where the design team can confirm that the ‘baseline supermarket’ defined in the Refrigeration Road Map does not provide an appropriate benchmark for the small retail store (i.e. it is below 2,000m2 as specified in the Road Map and the store has proportionately higher energy per sq m delivered values) then it would be appropriate to comply with the guidance on ‘Non retail buildings and the Carbon Trust Refrigeration Road Map Action Plan’ and generate a more appropriate baseline.Β  Typical installations and technologies should be proposed for this baseline where the systems being compared should have the same duty/service conditions and include relevant consumption from the refrigeration systems’ ancillary equipment.
