A pub retailer and brewer in the UK has reduced its energy used by its beer cooling systems by more than 50%.

Greene King has installed Cornelius’ ecoFLO Smart Pump System, which has also helped reduce carbon emissions.

Following the successful trial of the technology across more than 50 sites, the company is now rolling it out to all 1,800 of its managed facilities.

The system controls the run time of the cooler during periods when no beer is being sold without impacting product cooling during serving sessions.

David Carr, Head of Brewing and Operations at Greene King said: “With such a large estate across the UK, it’s really important to us that the systems we have in place are industry-leading and as operationally and environmentally efficient as possible.

“We’re pleased to be working with Cornelius to deliver the systems to our 1,800 managed sites and look forward to seeing the fantastic results.”
