Saving Energy with a Modular Refrigerator
We’ve talked a bit about Electrolux’s Design Lab 2008 contest already, but we wanted to highlight another finalist with huge potential: the flatshare fridge. While the idea is geared towards helping roommates keep track of their own food in the fridge, Treehugger points out the energy saving benefits of a compartmentalized fridge:
One way to rig it for energy savings is by programming each compartment for only the necessary temperature for the contents placed in that particular compartment and nothing more. Items that don’t need temperatures quite as cold as others could be separated.
