ClimaCheck is not only used to as a tool to optimise energy efficiency . The method is also used to monitor, analyse changes, evaluate new technologies, confirm performance and in R&D projects in the whole HVACR-business. 
Here you can find some of the reports and publications that is made.  

Refrigeration End-Use Performance Data Share
BPA recognizes Commercial Refrigeration as an important end use in the commercial energy savings portfolio for the region.

In 2012, the Energy Efficiency Engineering team became aware of a refrigeration performance monitoring system – ClimaCheck – and decided to use the equipment to monitor commercial refrigeration systems in the BPA region. 

Banner Health Implements Enterprise-wide Strategy to Maximize Energy Cost Savings, Meet Compliance and Patient Comfort Across 25 Hospital Facilities – LINK
ETC Group introduced a monitoring-based commissioning (MBCx) program that was piloted at the Banner Thunderbird medical center in Phoenix. Significant annual savings was achieved for this initial pilot, including $449,000 in lower energy costs, and energy savings of 4.7 million kwh and 13,600 dtherms.

High-Impact Technology Catalyst: Technology Deployment Strategies

The energy savings opportunity in commercial buildings varies according to building type, systems, climate zone, construction type, and occupant density, among other factors. To translate this complexity and opportunity into actionable, strategic approaches, DOE’s Building Technologies Office (BTO) conducts a research, identification, and evaluation exercise.

Performance indicators for energy efficient supermarket buildings

Analysis can be done for example with equipment from ClimaCheck for a short interval or with a permanent installation with connection to the internet, so it is possible to follow the variation in performance. The ClimaCheck system also provides other valuable information about the performance of the system.

The future business opportunity of the service sector is to measure and optimise

NREL – Evaluation of the Axiom Exergy Refrigeration Battery™ System

Future work should focus on directly measuring or better estimating thermal loads on the refrigeration systems. The following are suggested methods to improve thermal load predictions, which will minimize uncertainty in system sizing and help to further reduce risk to stakeholders:

1. Installation of a Climacheck (or similar) system to directly and accurately measure thermal loads on the refrigeration systems being analyzed.
