In a sake bottling plant which was newly built in 2012, hot and cold water is produced simultaneously by an electric heat pump system.

An ice thermal storage system is also introduced for additional cooling capacity, limiting peakhour power demand. Running costs and CO₂ emissions were decreased by 24% and 34% respectively compared to the conventional system. This system was suggested by Kansai Electric Power Company (KEPCO) to HAKUTSURU SAKE Brewing Company, the plant owner.
