Ice Rink of the Future- Evaluation of energy and system solutions (ENG, SWE)

published Sep 06, 2016 - 83 pages

Ice rinks consume large amounts of energy, with an average of around 1,000,000 kWh per year. Typically the refrigeration system is the main contributor using about 43% of the total energy. Today, nearly all ice rinks in Sweden use ammonia/brine systems, however, CO2-technology is near ideal in ice rink application due to the combined cooling and heating need. Reduced energy usage, mainly due to heat reclaim, will be the dominating saving factor for the ice rink owner.
