One of the elements of refrigeration is the various recognition systems for equipment depending on its purpose and size. One of the most coveted recognition systems is that of the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE), made up of efficiency program administrators from across the United States and Canada who work together on common approaches to advancing efficiency.

As stated by the CEE, “Through joining forces, the individual efficiency programs of CEE are able to partner not only with each other, but with other industries, trade associations, and government agencies. By working together at CEE, administrators leverage the effect of their funding dollars, exchange information on effective practices and, by doing so, achieve greater energy efficiency for the public good.”

One of the latest announcements from a manufacturer involving its involvement with CEE is Follett Corp.

The company said that it has “qualified its 400 pound/day Maestro™ icemakers and most of its ice and water dispensers for CEE Tier 2 specification for highly efficient icemakers.”

The Tier 2 criteria are said to be even more stringent than Energy Star requirements. “Follett is committed to product leadership in both ice machines and ice and water dispensers and, in particular, to energy and water efficiency,” according to Steve Follett, CEO. He said the Tier 2 designation will qualify Follett ice machines and ice and water dispensers for rebates from those utilities that use the CEE criteria for their energy efficiency incentive programs.

According to Follett, “All Maestro air-cooled Chewblet® and flake icemakers, along with 90 percent of Follett Symphony™ ice and water dispensers and all models of the newly released, compact 7 Series ice and water dispensers, meet the new CEE Tier 2 specification criteria.
