Description 

The proposed project is an extension of an existing SCE EP project being implemented that is designed to enhance grid reliability, replace high GWP refrigerants with ammonia and/or carbon dioxide, improve efficiency, process optimization, and achieve decarbonization goals at a large bakery site. The proposed SCE Idea implementation is focused on evaluating and applying underutilized (M-HTHP) to take advantage of: 1) free energy from low GWP refrigeration waste heat and 2) deliver a substitution option for traditional boilers.
