NREL’s research partnership with ComEd examines the technical aspects and potential energy savings of refrigerated display cases cooled by R290 propane refrigerant.

Overview

The use of reach-in refrigerated display cases is widespread in supermarkets and convenience stores across the ComEd service territory. Replicating the typical range of indoor conditions in supermarkets and convenience stores, NREL will evaluate the technical aspects and potential energy savings of refrigerated display cases that use R290 propane refrigerant through laboratory testing. The results of this research will be shared with the ComEd Emerging Technologies Team in fall 2020.
