Cascade Energy to Reduce Energy Consumption in Refrigerated FacilitiesCascade Energy, Walla Walla, Wash., is working with Lineage Logistics, Colton, Calif., to maximize refrigeration system energy efficiency at multiple Linear Logistics facilities. Cascade's energy-management services will help reduce the facilities energy consumption by an estimated 10 to 15 percent, according to the companies. This will lower resource utilization and costs, which are second only to labor in the industry, and can afford significant savings. Lineage Logistics is the second-largest temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics company in the world.

Cascade's energy-management services provide the tools and ongoing support required to reduce energy consumption at industrial facilities, according to the company. A key component is the facility tuneup, which secures cost-effective savings through an operations and maintenance approach. Tuneups are applied either to an entire facility or to specific systems such as refrigeration, compressed air and boiler systems.

Cascade ensures that energy savings are maintained and that additional opportunities for efficiency are pursued by providing regular technical support following the tuneup. Progress is tracked via Cascade's proprietary energy-tracking software and efficiency platform, SENSEI, which is designed to help drive continuous energy optimization.
