The CEESM Commercial Kitchens Initiative aims to define highly efficient cooking, refrigeration, and sanitation equipment across the United States and Canadian markets based on voluntary equipment performance specifications determined by CEE member consensus and industry input. CEE is seeking feedback from commercial kitchens industry partners on proposed revisions to the CEESM Commercial Kitchens Initiative related to the CEE specifications and initiative strategies for automatic commercial ice makers (ACIM).

The attached letter provides the Commercial Kitchens Committee’s responses to the comments submitted on draft 1 and the updated draft 2 of the Commercial Ice Machines Specification. CEE appreciates ACIM industry partners consideration and comments on the CEE Commercial Kitchens Initiative and Commercial Ice Machine Specification revision, and respectfully requests comments on the proposal by July 31, 2020.* The Committee anticipates recommending the attached draft specification to the CEE Board of Directors in October 2020 with a recommended effective date of January 1, 2021.

CEE Pre-Rinse Spary Valave Proposal Industry Comment Opportunity

Date Published: May 19, 2020    
Fuel Type:Electric Sectors: Commercial, Commercial & Industrial, Kitchens - Commercial, Pre-Rinse Spray Valves

The CEESM Commercial Kitchens Initiative aims to define highly efficient cooking, refrigeration, and sanitation equipment across the United States and Canadian markets based on voluntary equipment performance specifications determined by CEE member consensus and industry input. CEE is seeking feedback from commercial food service industry partners on proposed revisions to the CEESM Commercial Kitchens Initiative specification and strategy for pre-rinse spray valves (PRSVs).

The CEE Commercial Kitchens Committee is proposing sunsetting the CEE Commercial Pre-Rinse Spray Valve Specification, thereby discontinuing maintenance of the specification and qualified products list, and revising the Initiative to recommend that program administrators consider using PRSVs as an entry point to engage customers in energy efficiency. CEE respectfully requests industry partner comments on the proposal by July 31, 2020.* Following the completion of the industry review period, the Committee will consider the full slate of industry comments and determine whether to seek approval from the CEE Board of Directors to revise the Initiative strategy for PRSV and sunset the CEE PRSV specification in October 2020, or modify the proposal and seek additional industry input. If the specification were sunset, CEE would continue to host the specification and past qualified product lists on its public website for one year following public announcement of the Board’s decision to sunset.

Please contact Senior Program Manager, Bjorn Jensen at bjensen@cee1.org or 617-337-9280 with questions or comments.

Sectors: Commercial & Industrial

The Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) Board has approved the new CEE Commercial and Industrial (C&I) Pump Systems Initiative (Initiative) on January 21, 2020. Pump Systems have the potential for 339 Terawatt-hours of savings over the next 30 years in the United States (U.S.). CEE is positioned to support members and work with industry toward increasing the availability of highly efficient pump systems by:

  • Defining high energy performance pumps,
  • Defining and tracking the market to support communication and education,
  • Setting a framework for considering system and integrated demand side management principles.
