Objectives
  • Describe ENERGY STAR
  • Recap October Meeting
  • Explain difference between this and California
    activities
  • Review Draft Eligibility Criteria
  • Determine Next Steps

3
History - The problem
  • Consumers invested little in efficient products
  • - Lack of information about energy efficiency
    benefits
  • The most advanced technologies were not well
    represented in the market
  • - Lack of incentives for manufactures to produce
    more efficient products
  • Political limitations
  • - Manufacturers resisted the implementation of
    more rigorous standards

4
The Solution
The symbol for energy efficiency Making it easy
to make a difference
5
The ENERGY STAR solution
  • Voluntary partnership with manufacturers
  • Gives the purchaser an easy way to choose
    efficient products
  • Makes link between energy consumption and air
    pollution
  • Facilitates collaboration among EPA,
    manufacturers, retailers and utilities so as to
    increase sales of ENERGY STAR labeled products

6
The ENERGY STAR label
  • Only one label at the national level
  • 31 product categories
  • Representing the top 25 in efficiency
  • Products either qualify or dont qualify
  • Manufacturers test and label their products
  • No cost for participation

7
ENERGY STAR Products
  • Household appliances
  • CFLs / residential fixtures / exit signs
  • Consumer electronics
  • Office equipment
  • Heating and cooling equipment
  • New homes
  • Windows
  • Transformers
  • Roof products
  • Water coolers
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Traffic signals

8
ENERGY STAR - The latest
  • Under Development
  • Commercial solid door refrigerators and freezers
  • Ventilation fans
  • Ceiling fans
  • Telephony
  • Being explored
  • Air purifiers
  • Motors
  • Unitary HVAC
  • Vending machines

9
Developing an Effective Label
  • Energy and environmental analysis
  • Market research and design analysis
  • Specification development (in cooperation with
    stakeholders)

10
Criteria for Product Selection
  • Significant energy savings potential
  • Efficiency would be cost-effective
  • Performance is maintained or enhanced
  • Efficiency can be achieved with non-proprietary
    technology
  • Product differentiation and testing are feasible
  • Labeling would be effective in the market

11
Supporting the Label
  • Publicity and consumer education
  • Marketing tools and financing
  • Recognition of manufacturer efforts with annual
    awards
  • Strengthening the links within product
    distribution networks
  • Purchasing tools

12
Why ENERGY STAR Works
  • Adds value to products services
  • Simple --- consistent platform
  • Flexible --- partners can take ownership
  • Builds on existing market structures

13
ENERGY STAR is Simple
  • One program
  • Unified web site www.energystar.gov
  • Unified Partnership Agreement
  • Enhanced brand management
  • Unified set of logos
  • One promotional message
  • ENERGY STAR makes it easy to make a difference in
    protecting the environment while saving money

14
Success of ENERGY STAR
  • Widespread and growing participation
  • More than 1,600 manufacturer partners
  • More than 11,000 product models that comply with
    ENERGY STAR specifications
  • 100 companies that provide electricity to nearly
    47 of households
  • more than 7,100 stores in 50 states and Puerto
    Rico
  • 33 state and local governments require purchase
    of ENERGY STAR labeled products

15
Impact of ENERGY STAR
  • 41 of Americans recognize the ENERGY STAR label
  • Improvements in the design and energy efficiency
    of products
  • 530 Million ENERGY STAR labeled products sold
    (cumulatively) Resulting in
  • Savings of 28.4 billion over their lifetime
  • Reduction of carbon emissions by 78 million
    metric tons over their lifetime

16
Recap of October Meeting
  • Why ENERGY STAR is interested in commercial
    refrigeration
  • Market observations
  • Potential for energy savings
  • Current activities CEC, CSA, ACEEE, FSTC
  • What a draft specification could be
  • Energy use equation
  • Solid door units only
  • Test according to ASHRAE 117

17
Recap of October Meeting
  • Action Items
  • Examine ASHRAE 117 and address loopholes
  • Review product categorization
  • Analyze CEC database to derive equations for
    energy use

18
CEC vs. ENERGY STAR
  • CEC is setting minimum standards for energy
    efficiency for many products
  • Including commercial refrigeration
  • 2 tiers 75 and 50
  • Mandatory to sell in CA
  • ENERGY STAR is voluntary
  • Highlights top energy performers (25)
  • Nationwide program

19
Draft Eligibility Criteria
  • Product specific information
  • Definitions, qualifying products,
    energy-efficiency specifications, and testing
    protocol
  • One element of the Partnership Agreement
  • Signed by manufacturer
  • Contains standard language
  • Partner commitments
  • Logo Use Guidelines

20
Definitions
  • Commercial Refrigeration Cabinet A
    refrigerator, freezer, or combination
    refrigerator-freezer for storing food products or
    other perishable items at specified temperatures
    and designed for use by commercial or
    institutional facilities.
  • Commercial Refrigerator A cabinet designed for
    storing food or other perishable items at
    temperatures above 32F and below 40F.
  • Commercial Freezer A reach-in cabinet designed
    for storing food or other perishable items at
    temperatures below 0F and above -5F.

21
Definitions (continued)
  • Commercial Refrigerator-Freezer A cabinet with
    two or more compartments, at least one of which
    is designed for storing food or other perishable
    items at temperatures above 32F and below 40F
    and at least one of which is designed for storing
    food or other perishable items at temperatures
    below 0F and above -5F.
  • Ice Cream Freezer A commercial cabinet designed
    for storing food or other perishable items at
    temperatures below -5F.

22
Definitions (continued)
  • Energy Consumption The energy required to
    maintain the contents at a specified temperature
    for a 24-hour period.
  • Initial Product Temperature The temperature of
    a test package at the beginning of the
    performance test.
  • Maximum Product Temperature The highest
    temperature of any test package during the
    performance test.

23
Qualifying Products
  • Reach-In Cabinet An upright commercial
    refrigeration cabinet with one to three solid
    doors, but not including undercounter, roll-in,
    roll-through, or pass-through cabinets.
  • Undercounter Cabinet An upright commercial
    refrigeration cabinet with one to three solid
    doors intended for installation under a counter
    and is thermally isolated from the counter.

24

    refrigerator or freezer.
  • Pass-through Cabinet An upright commercial
    refrigeration cabinet with one to three solid
    sliding or hinged doors on both the front and
    rear of the refrigerator or freezer.
