What is it?
The AWRI Refrigeration Demand Calculator is a spreadsheet-based tool for analysing and managing winery refrigeration demand.
How does it work?
The Calculator allows producers to enter grape intake and production data to simulate refrigeration demand across the entire annual production cycle. Users can assess the impact of factors such as cellar storage and cold stabilisation temperatures, fermentation conditions, climate, brine temperature, tank size and insulation on refrigeration demand and energy costs.
How much does it cost?
The AWRI Refrigeration Demand Calculator is free to download for Australian wine producers.
How do I use it?
The Calculator spreadsheet, an example spreadsheet and a full user guide are all available for download.
