May 11, 2012: AHRI Submits Comments on DOE’s Rulemaking Analyses for Commercial Ice-Makers

ARLINGTON, Va. — The Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) has filed comments on the preliminary technical support document (TSD) that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released as part of its rulemaking process on minimum energy conservation standards for automatic commercial ice-makers.

The TSD contains preliminary analyses performed by DOE, the performance energy conservation standard levels that DOE could consider, and the energy savings that could result from implementing these standards. In its comments to DOE, AHRI noted serious deficiencies in the engineering analysis and in particular the cost-efficiency curves that AHRI said were derived based on false assumptions and incorrect cost figures.

AHRI offered to work with DOE to improve the analysis. AHRI further questioned DOE’s intention to regulate continuous ice-makers, as the preliminary energy savings from establishing energy conservation standards were found negligible.
