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

WhereΒ 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 ‘Carbon Trust Refrigeration Road Map’ guidance in the Methodology section and generate a more appropriate baseline.Β  As per the guidance, 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.
