    Understanding Net Benefits and Cost for Different Energy Efficient Refrigeration Design Options

    Webinar Description:

    This webinar sets out a methodology and tools for manufacturers to understand cost and net benefits for different energy efficient refrigeration design options and the required manufacturing line upgrades.

    By attending this webinar, manufacturers will be able to determine which product changes can be taken cost effectively. The simulation software CERA gives visual modelling of the changes in components, the benefit in energy efficiency and the cost involved in doing so.


    As part of the Montreal Protocol, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) has, for many years, supported member countries which phase-out the use of ozone depleting and global warming substances in the cooling sector. The amendment to the Montreal Protocol in 2016 in Kigali, Rwanda, led to the creation of the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP) which aims to help increase energy efficiency (EE) of cooling in developing countries. This unique K-CEP funded project: “Assessment of incremental capital and operating costs for improved EE in domestic, commercial and retail refrigeration” is brought to you by UNIDO and the International Copper Association.
    The webinar will present the outcomes of the project and will provide insights into how to use the guidance document, analyze changes in manufacturing, evaluate technical and financial options for energy efficient products and calculate associated emission reductions

    Agenda:

          • Introduction
          • Report structure, methodology, findings
          • Introduction to CERA- DOE software
          • Industrial examples.

    Rittal-Determining the Most Efficient Climate Solution for Industrial Enclosures

    Sophisticated, sensitive components such as VFDs, PLCs, etc., are the backbone of many industrial applications.  Industrial enclosures provide protection from harsh environments for electrical/electronic equipment. Depending on the surrounding temperature and other ambient conditions, it is imperative these enclosures be properly cooled to ensure the optimum performance of all installed components and avoid heat-related downtime or potential catastrophic failures.
    Creating effective and energy efficient climate control solutions for industrial applications consists of 3 key phases—design, installation and operation. Join Eric Corzine, Product Manager at Rittal North America, to discuss tips specific on each phase of a project that will help you determine the right climate solution for your environment while reducing energy consumption:

          •  Using the design phase to determine how much cooling is required for the application
          • The different roles of filter fans, air conditioners and liquid cooling products in thermal management strategies
          • The latest advancements in enclosure cooling technology and IIOT compatibility
          • Common mistakes during installation that hamper effective climate control

    AMCA: New Fan Efficiency Requirements in ANSI/ASHRAE/IES 90.1-2019

    The 2019 edition of ANSI/ASHRAE/IES 90.1 Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (ASHRAE 90.1),adopts a new fan efficiency metric, Fan Energy Index (FEI). The FEI metric replaces the Fan Efficiency Grade (FEG) metric that was in the 2013 and 2016 editions of the standard. FEI also is replacing FEG in the 2020 edition of ANSI/ASHRAE/USGBC/IES 189.1, Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (ASHRAE 189.1), and the 2021 editions of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and International Green Construction Code (IgCC).

    This webinar instructs why the switch occurred from FEI to FEG and summarizes other changes in the fan efficiency section in Standard 90.1. The webinar also instructs how FEI is applied for sizing and selecting fans for constant-speed and variable air volume (VAV) systems and concludes with how to find FEI ratings from manufacturers.
