CUES – Chilled Unit Energy Saver
Reduce energy costs with
smart refrigeration controls
Refrigeration is one of the world’s biggest energy consumption problems today. Here in Dubai we lay a huge amount of pressure on global energy resources through cooling units. How do we know this for sure? Because we’ve created a product that substantially reduces the energy impact of refrigeration devices – CUES.
Effective refrigeration is a worldwide sustainability priority
Minimising any energy used on pointlessly cooling the fridge itself – while more efficiently maintaining the temperature of food – CUES is the clever solution for your business.
The Problem With Refrigeration
A cooling device’s role is to regulate the temperature in an area that has been set by a thermostat. The compressor unit that runs the fridge is therefore cycled on and off to maintain this precise temperature.
This makes sense – but the truth is that huge volumes of over-spent energy are used cooling nothing but dead space. So ask yourself what really matters – the air temperature in the fridge, or the temperature of your food?
As you will know, the two are quite different. As is maintaining them. The thermodynamic properties of solid food are considerably separate from that of air. This means that, whilst the oxygen in a cabinet may need re-cooling, the food may not.
A lot of the energy used by your fridge is wasted – it’s busy over-working to keep your food cool when it’s already at the desired temperature.
The CUES Solution
How does CUES help make this process more efficient? The answer is – CUES is a simple, retrofit solution to the issue of over-active refrigeration devices. It regulates safe food temperature using far less energy.
CUES is a compact, innovative device that contains an advanced food simulant. This has the same thermal characteristics as typical food products. Fitted directly over the already-installed thermostats, the CUES device ensures that food temperature, not air temperature, is the driving force behind your fridge’s cooling process.
The happy result of this is longer compressor cycles, but with up to a massive 80% reduction in frequency. This means our clients benefit from extensive energy reductions – up to 33%. They are also able to more closely and efficiently manage food temperature, creating benefits in terms of food hygiene and health & safety.

To the right, you can see a breakdown of CUES’ components.
Carefully designed in the UK to suit its purpose and operating environment, the CUES has a wax-based food simulant at its centre, which successfully imitates the thermal properties (such as thermal conductivity and thermal mass) of the food inside your refrigerator.
SMART Energy Savings offers this system in two convenient variations to make sure that – no matter the size or type of your fridge – fitting CUES is quick and easy.
