Q. Why is it important to be a part of the Cold Chain Federation?

The Cold Chain Federation represents a strategically important sector that is vital to the supply chain in the UK. As a large consumer of energy exposed to market volatility while committed to decarbonisation, the members of the CCF and Ameresco share a common interest and strategic fit, working together to bring the process expertise and energy expertise needed to decarbonise the sector and create a sustainable Cold Chain fit for the future.

Q. What are Ameresco’s aspirations for the industry?

Ameresco offers a complete set of energy and sustainability solutions, from strategic advice on markets and contracts through to fully funded energy efficiency and renewable generation installations. We are partnering with Cold Chain Federation members to develop bespoke strategies for risk management and decarbonisation, while also providing in-depth market intelligence and analysis to support the membership during the current period of energy market volatility and instability.
