Create a “green rink” – Cut Your Carbon Footprint by +40t of CO2 per Year

Energy, Costs and Emission savings with REALice®

Ice rinks consume vast amounts of energy and therefore contribute to global warming. The REALice® System will enable you to easily create a “Green Ice Rink” and reduce your emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) by 40 tonnes per rink per year and therefore quickly reducing your arenas carbon footprint.

Ways to measure/calculate savings with REALice®

  • Comparing current to previous utility bills (monitoring kWH, GJ / therm / m3 of natural gas usage / oil usage)
  • Monitoring compressor loads and running time and comparing with previous logs
  • Install separate sub meters on compressors and logging the run time and kWh usage, i.e with Eyedro Business Electricity Monitors (http://eyedro.com)
  • Calculate savings by entering the temperature difference for resurfacing water & increase in brine temperature: www.realice.ca/calculate
