Refrigerated display cabinets are designed to store and display chilled and/or frozen food items and are typically used in retail stores such as supermarkets, petrol stations, liquor outlets and smaller food and beverage vendors. The Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program provides incentives for installing or upgrading to energy efficient refrigerated display cabinets under the Part 32 Activity – Refrigerated display cabinet.

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (the department) is looking to update the current refrigerated display cabinet activity to allow for the latest energy efficiency technology to be installed. Updates will enable refrigerated display cabinets registered to the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Refrigerated Cabinets) Determination 2020 that meet the Specifications set by the department to receive VEU incentives.

Updates include:

  • updating the activity name from ‘Refrigerated display cabinets’ to ‘Refrigerated cabinets’
  • expanding the range of products that can be installed under the VEU activity
  • introducing new formulae for calculating energy savings for refrigerated cabinet products
  • providing a transition time so high efficiency products can use their Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Refrigerated display cabinets) Determination 2012 registrations to continue to receive current levels of VEU incentives.

The refrigerated display cabinets issues paper includes proposed updates, draft Specifications and consultation questions, included in the survey below. Feedback from your submissions will be used to guide the proposed updates.
