The analysis contained in this report represents 17 Extended Energy Survey (EES) reports from dairies including all those involved in the preparation of milk or milk products or both. The sites involved represent around 7% of the energy use of the Dairy Sector in the United Kingdom and range from small dairies to large creameries employing over 500 people. No comparison of energy efficiency has been attempted since the number of similar sites in relevant groups was too small. Potential energy savings of Pound 1.27 million/annum were identified in the 21 reports. These savings were classified in two ways, by measure type and by cost. The most important measure types were energy management, boilers, heat recovery and refrigeration. In terms of cost of measures, 65% of the energy savings were attributable to techniques costing Pound 10k or more. Overall, all but one of the measure types yielded a payback of less than 3 years. The ratio benefit to Government cost for the 21 EES reports analysed would be approximately 18:1 if all recommended measures were taken up by the participating dairies. (author).
