2
Meeting Goals
  • Summarize ENERGY STAR Program vision
  • Review EPAs ventialtion fan research since last
    HVI meeting
  • Introduce draft ENERGY STAR guidelines for
    ventilation fans
  • Discuss draft and next steps

3
ENERGY STAR Philosophy
  • Foster public-private partnerships expand
    markets for energy-efficient products and reduce
    energy waste
  • Reduce air pollution decrease carbon dioxide
    and other emissions leading to climate change and
    urban smog
  • Recognize the most energy-efficient product
    models in the market through the use of the
    ENERGY STAR label
  • Maintain customer satisfaction increase energy
    efficiency without sacrificing performance
  • Encourage innovation and competition develop
    energy-efficiency guidelines that are technology
    neutral and performance based

Future Direction
  • Whole Home Approach

6
Program Update Continued Growth Success
  • Strong and increasing industry participation
  • Over 1,200 manufacturing Partners spanning 29
    product categories
  • 3,400 compliant models
  • Improvements in design and energy efficiency
  • Launch of the new Computer and Monitor MOUs
    (Version 3.0)

How EPA DOE Promote ENERGY STAR Program
  • ENERGY STAR Web site at www.energystar.gov
  • 10,000 hits daily
  • National Brand Awareness Public Education
    Campaign
  • Media outreach (national, local, trade press)
  • Media hits 50 in June/July
  • Public Service Announcements (PSAs)
  • New broadcast PSA
  • Print PSAs noteworthy placements in May through
    July

Retail Utility Participation
  • Retail
  • 3,500 retail Partners in 46 states
  • Sears, Best Buy, Circuit City
  • Sales tools
  • Point-of-purchase (POP) materials
  • Retail training - programs and videos
  • Utility Partners/Co-branding
  • 46 utility/energy service providers in 14 States
  • Serve approximately 32 of the households in the
    U.S.

13
Retail Utility Participation (continued)
Over the next 3 years, utilities plan to spend 1
billion on efficiency and market transformation
activities.

A Growing Suite of Products
  • New Product Development
  • 4 programs launched in 1998 and 1999
  • Tentative plans to launch 5-7 more programs in
    the remainder of 1999
  • Potential New Products
  • Set-top boxes -Vending machines -Reach-in
    fridge/freezer
  • Ventilation fans -Ceiling fans -Traffic signals
  • Ice cube makers -Air purifiers -Telephony
  • Visi-coolers -Water coolers -Dehumidifiers
  • Wall packs -Motors -Unitary AC
  • Humidifiers

16
Why Ventilation Fans?
  • Diverse products reliably large and growing
    installed base
  • Changing usage patterns
  • Potential for more energy-efficient design
  • Manufacturer interest in program
  • Changing building codes and indoor air quality
    concerns from tighter homes

17
Market Observations
  • Diverse products
  • At least 6 functional uses and categories
  • Installed base 143 million
  • Annual energy consumed 5.6 billion kWh
  • Residential market 7 million units sold/yr.
  • 300 million in sales
  • Sales growth 1 per year
  • 5 million new units to new homes
  • 2 million units sold retail
  • __ bought by builders
  • __ bought by consumers

18
Market Observationscontinued
  • Great divergence in product efficiency
  • Components and sub-components responsible
  • Shaded pole vs. permanent split capacitor motors
  • Stator laminations
  • Shading quality
  • Air gap
  • Wiring
  • Capacitors
  • Impeller
  • Scroll
  • Housing
  • Auxiliary controls
  • Timer, humidity and motion sensors

19
Fan Efficiency Observations
  • EPA reviewed data and designs from 51 fans
  • Identified those with efficiency in the 75th
    percentile to find those with very high
    efficiency
  • - cfm/W level gt 3.4
  • - cfm range 50 to 1,200
  • Surprising outcome -- No clear trend in energy
    efficiency verses capacity.
  • Conclusion -- More complex analysis needed to
    control for component type

Potential Savings from ENERGY STAR Ventilation
Fans
21
Potential Savings(continued)
22
The Role of ENERGY STARin the Fan Market
  • ENERGY STAR can be a catalyst for long-term
    market transformation
  • Low level of market penetration of
    energy-efficient fans
  • Current level approximately 10
  • Large variance in product energy efficiency
  • .5 cfm/watt -- 5 cfm/watt
  • Easy way for builders and consumers to identify
    the most efficient products
  • Testing Guidelines - any changes necessary?
  • Time Line - Recommended Industry
    Events/Milestones

23
EPAs Promotion of Ventilation Fans
  • Focus on key distribution channels to reach
    builders and individual consumers
  • Retailers
  • Utilities
  • EPA and DOE resources
  • ENERGY STAR HIP and Homes programs, DOE FEMP
    program
  • Advertising mediums
  • Print, internet and TV
  • Trade shows
  • Procurement efforts
