CEE Program Design Guidance Pre-Rinse Spray Valves

Date Published: August 30, 2021     Document Type: Program Guide
Fuel Type:Electric, Gas Sectors: Commercial, Commercial & Industrial, Commercial Gas, Kitchens - Commercial, Pre-Rinse Spray Valves, Gas

This document provides guidance to CEE member energy efficiency program administrators to streamline the development of voluntary energy efficiency programs for pre-rinse spray valves. This document is part of the CEE Commercial Kitchens Initiative. It includes consensus-based guidance to CEE member energy efficiency program administrators on topics relevant to program design and development including the following: equipment description, product use and lifetimes, specifications and test methods, product availability, price differential, energy savings, program design tips, and references to additional resources. This document was created by CEE staff based on research and analysis conducted by the CEE Commercial Kitchens Committee during the life of the CEE Pre-Rinse Spray Valves Specification, which was retired on February 15, 2021. This document does not provide program design recommendations or CEE policy positions.

The Commercial Kitchens Initiative provides an overview of the Initiative, background on foodservice energy consumption and the foodservice industry, initiative goals, strategies and major activities, initiative participation requirements, and efficiency specifications for commercial kitchen equipment.

Note on 2018 Federal Minimums

New US federal minimum energy conservation standards (federal minimums) for automatic commercial ice makers will take effect January 28, 2018 and are equivalent to current CEE Tier 1 requirements. In the case of self-contained, commercial ice machines, the new federal minimum standards are more stringent than CEE Tier 2 requirements. On January 28, 2018, updated requirements for ENERGY STAR® Automatic Commercial Ice Machines are also scheduled to take effect. CEE is in the process of considering opportunities to revise the CEE Commercial Kitchens Initiative and the CEE Commercial Ice Machine Specification to ensure continued market relevance and role of the Initiative. Revised CEE tiers are currently being investigated for equipment types and performance levels not directly addressed by DOE or EPA, such as advanced performance tiers, water-cooled equipment (closed loop system or a system with a remote evaporative condenser), and connected equipment. A revised CEE Commercial Ice Machine Specification with an updated Tier 1, new Advanced Tier, and considerations for system connectivity is expected in 2021. 

2018 CEE SEM Program Summary

Date Published: June 1, 2021     Document Type: Program Summary
Sectors: Commercial & Industrial

The CEE Strategic Energy Management (SEM) Program Summary paints a landscape of SEM programs across the US and Canada with in-depth characterizations of individual SEM offerings. CEE collected detailed information on the design, delivery strategies, and results of 14 commercial and industrial SEM programs. The CEE SEM Committee then developed a brief analysis of program models and trends. This and other CEE program summaries enable member program administrators, industry partners, and efficiency stakeholders to quickly assess program support and investment for particular technologies and services. They also demonstrate the impact of trusted CEE initiatives, and how these are being used today to transform commercial and industrial markets.

CEE Industrial Motors Progam Summary Overview

Date Published: April 29, 2021     Document Type: Program Summary
Fuel Type:Electric Sectors: Commercial & Industrial, Drives, General Purpose Motors (1-200 HP), Industrial, Motor Driven Systems, Motors, Motors & Motor Systems

This memo summarizes CEE member programs active, based on the latest CEE Motors Program Summary, that aimed to support more efficient motors and motor systems by continuing to explore new motor technology and opportunities for savings within motor end uses. This overview highlights key insights from the CEE 2019 Industrial Motors Program Summary, which is available to CEE Members. CEE Industrial Motors and Motor Systems work seeks to move commercial and industrial markets for motors and motor-driven systems toward higher levels of energy performance by creating a forum for members and industry to discuss high performance and enabling more programs to offer support for high-performance motor driven equipment and related practices. This memo focuses on program activity related to motors exploration. The CEE Motor Exploration Committee seeks to move the market toward adopting high-performing motors that exceed the current bi-national baseline. Since each CEE member uses different program development processes and schedules, this document aims to provide the best available snapshot and does not attempt to describe how programs have evolved to date or how they are likely to change in the future.

CEE Compressed Air Program Summary Overview

Date Published: April 29, 2021     Document Type: Program Summary
Fuel Type:Electric Sectors: Commercial & Industrial, Compressed Air Systems and Fans, Industrial, Motor Driven Systems, Motors & Motor Systems

This memo summarizes CEE member programs active in the last year(s) that aimed to support the CEE Compressed Air Initiative, which seeks to improve compressed air system performance through defining consistent, holistic audits that meet a minimum level according to the specification. The Compressed Air Committee is working to finalize revisions to the Initiative. Since each CEE member uses different program development processes and schedules, this document aims to provide the best available snapshot and does not attempt to describe how programs have evolved to date or how they are likely to change in the future. This overview summarizes the 2019 CEE Compressed Air Program Summary data, which is available to CEE members.

CEE Pump Program Summary Overview

Date Published: April 28, 2021     Document Type: Program Summary
Fuel Type:Electric, Gas Sectors: Commercial & Industrial

The CEE Pump Systems Initiative (Initiative) defined a performance level for clean water pumps that represents significant performance improvement over a defined baseline and outlined information critical for programs to support the broader objective. Members continue to assess, develop, and update measures to support wire to water pump efficiency and overcome challenges with historic bare pump measures. CEE publishes pump program summaries for members and provides a program summary overview that discusses the relevant trends and objectives for public use.
