Latest Installation of Emerson’s Making Sense Webinar Series to Address DOE 2017 Walk-in Cooler and Freezer Energy Efficiency Ratings
ST. LOUIS, October 13, 2014 — To address the Department of Energy’s (DOE) recent final ruling on the regulation of energy consumption in walk-in coolers and freezers, Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc., a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), has announced it is hosting a free webinar on Tuesday, Oct. 21, at 2 p.m. EDT/11 a.m. PDT.

This complimentary live event will address the concerns, considerations and implications of the DOE’s ruling, which goes into effect on June 5, 2017, and will force manufacturers to re-evaluate the effectiveness of condensing unit technology, how it compares to Annual Walk-in Energy Factor (AWEF) ratings and all available design options in order to prepare systems for compliance.
Topics to be discussed at the webinar will include:
- A survey of existing condensing unit technology and how it compares to AWEF minimum requirements
- Technology and design options (e.g., compressors, coils, motors, modulation, controls, etc.)
- Importance of low condensing operation/floating head pressure
- AWEF calculations for condensing units, unit coolers and complete systems
- AWEF vs. Annual Energy Efficiency Ratio
- Impacts of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) recent significant new alternative refrigerant delisting proposal
- Refrigeration industry push-back
The webinar will be led by Emerson Climate Technologies experts Ani Jayanth and Brian Buynacek. Jayanth is the foodservice marketing manager for the Refrigeration Business Unit, where he guides the division’s product roadmap to meet the pending EPA and DOE regulations as well as to promote product technology serving the foodservice market segment.
