STORY: How much energy goes
into pouring a pint of beer?
A Czech brewery is turning to
technology to find out
Location: Prague, Czech Republic
The hope is that energy costs at
pubs can be reduced by 30 percent
The project is called ‘Smart Taproom’
(Jakub Zaoral, ‘Smart Taproom’ project leader)
"We will “X-ray” and observe 45 pubs using 1,200 sensors which gives us the exact numbers, how our tapping system consumes electricity, and we will relate this with the beer flow and its consumption in the pub."
The system collects data on beer flow
as well as tube and tap temperatures
The analyzed data will be used to give
recommendations on how to save energy
