The Freezer Challenge
Thousands of scientists around the world compete in the International Laboratory Freezer
Challenge each year to learn how to be more energy efficient with their lab’s cold storage,
improve sample accessibility, reduce risk, and save costs for their institutions. Second only to
fume hoods, your lab’s cold storage (refrigerators, freezers, cold rooms) is likely the next
biggest category of energy consumers in your lab space. Ready to do something about that?
The 2023 Freezer Challenge is scheduled to kick off in the October 2022-January 2023
timeframe. Find out more at https://www.freezerchallenge.org/
