Title: ENERGY STAR


1
  • ENERGY STAR Refrigerated Beverage
  • Vending Machine Industry Meeting
  • Rachel Schmeltz, US EPA
  • Georgia World Congress Center
  • October 22, 2002

2
Meeting Agenda
  • Overview of ENERGY STAR
  • The History and EPAs Interest in Vending
    Machines
  • Utility Interest and Opportunities
  • Draft Specification for Vending Machines
  • Retrofit and Installed Base Discussion

3
What is ENERGY STAR?
  • Government-backed label that makes it easy for
    purchasers and users to identify products that
    save energy, save money and help protect the
    environment without sacrifice in quality or
    performance
  • Products that earn the ENERGY STAR meet strict
    energy performance criteria set by the US EPA or
    DOE
  • Voluntary partnership

4
The ENERGY STAR Label
  • One label at the national level
  • Over 30 products to date
  • Representing top 25 in their category for
    efficiency
  • Products either qualify or dont qualify
  • Manufacturers test and label products
  • No cost for participating

5
ENERGY STAR Qualified Products
  • Residential products
  • Household appliances
  • CFLs and light fixtures
  • Consumer electronics
  • Heating and cooling equipment
  • Office equipment
  • Ceiling fans
  • Windows
  • Water coolers
  • Dehumidifiers

6
ENERGY STAR Qualified Products
  • Commercial Products
  • Heating and cooling equipment
  • Roof products
  • Traffic signals/exit signs
  • Commercial solid door refrigerators
  • New Products in Development
  • Commercial food service equipment
  • Refrigerated beverage
  • vending machines

7
Criteria for Product Selection
  • Significant energy savings potential
  • Efficiency is cost-effective
  • Performance is maintained or enhanced
  • Efficiency is achieved with non-proprietary
    technology
  • Product differentiation and testing are feasible
  • Labeling would be effective in the market

8
Developing an Effective Label
  • Energy and environmental analysis
  • Market research and design analysis
  • Specification development (in cooperation with
    stakeholders)

9
Activities to Support the Label
  • Publicity and consumer education
  • Marketing tools and financing
  • Recognition with annual awards
  • Purchasing tools

10
ENERGY STAR Success
  • More than 1,200 manufacturers labeling more than
    13,000 product models
  • More than 400 retailers (16,000 storefronts)
    including Sears, WalMart, Lowes, and Home Depot
  • 160 state and utility partners supplying nearly
    60 of US customers
  • To date, American consumers have purchased more
    than 750 million ENERGY STAR labeled products

11
ENERGY STAR Impact
  • ENERGY STAR is recognized by 40 of consumers
    nationwide
  • Awareness exceeds 50 in areas where
    utility/state programs are active
  • High brand loyalty most ENERGY STAR purchasers
    would recommend ENERGY STAR to a friend

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 Partnership Agreement
  • 3 Sections
  • Commitment Form
  • Partner Commitments
  • Eligibility Criteria
  • Commitment Form only has to be signed once and
    allows partner to expand product areas at any
    time
  • Partner Commitments similar language across ALL
    products
  • Eligibility Criteria Product specifications,
    testing guidelines, and effective dates

14
ENERGY STAR Partnership Agreement
  • Three Standard Commitments
  • Annual submission of product information
  • Clear display of the ENERGY STAR label on
    products, on product packaging, in product
    literature, and on company Web site
  • Annual submission of ENERGY STAR unit shipment
    data

Essential to continued growth and success of
ENERGY STAR
15
Annual Submission of Product Information
  • Goal to ensure qualified product information
    provided on the Web site is current
  • Qualifying products do not need to be retested if
    the specification has not changed
  • Submit list of products that continue to qualify
  • Report products that have been discontinued year
    round

16
Product Labeling
  • Goals
  • To ensure that participating manufacturers get
    recognition for their efforts
  • To increase awareness of ENERGY STAR among
    consumers
  • To make it easy for purchasers, retailers, and/or
    others to identify energy-efficient models
  • To maintain the integrity of the ENERGY STAR
    brand by ensuring that the label is visible in
    the marketplace

17
Annual Shipment Data
  • Goal to determine market penetration of ENERGY
    STAR
  • EPA will work with partners to determine data
    collection format
  • Data can be masked and/or aggregated
  • Data may be provided by trade association on
    behalf of its members

18
EPAs History with Vending Machines
  • Efforts began over 5 years ago with limited
    success
  • Energy savings/pollution prevention potential
    sparked EPA interest
  • Improved understanding of market and split
    incentives
  • Difficult to get reliable data on which to base a
    specification
  • Recently jump started again
  • Machine improvements by manufacturers
  • Recognition by beverage companies of importance
    of energy efficiency
  • Interest from utilities

19
Working toward an ENERGY STAR specification
  • To date, EPA has limited data on machine energy
    consumption
  • Need to augment dataset to ensure that
    specification captures at least the top 25 of
    the market
  • Build understanding of the market and where
    ENERGY STAR could play a role
  • For both new machines and installed base

Vital to developing a successful specification
20
Working toward an ENERGY STAR specification Next
Steps
  • Preliminary Draft available for review
  • Determine Draft review period
  • Post comments on the Web site
  • Assimilate industry comments
  • Obtain more data
  • Further research as needed
  • Disseminate additional Draft for review
  • Finalize specification and launch
  • Mfrs sign a Partnership Agreement
