AHRI petitioned for review of the new energy efficiency standards in August 2014
July 30, 2015
The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) today announced that a settlement has been reached in litigation that it brought against the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) challenging DOE’s final rule, issued June 3, 2014, setting energy efficiency standards for commercial walk-in coolers and freezers (WICF).
The market is primarily being driven by extensive growth in the hospitality industry

The global food service equipment/commercial refrigeration market was valued at $31.54 billion in 2013, and is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.8 percent from 2014 to 2020, representing a value of $44.33 billion in 2020, according to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research.
The Modular Silicon Expansion Valve (MSEV) from DunAn Microstaq (DMQ) is a fast-responding electronic expansion valve that can be used in a variety of refrigeration applications, including display cases, freezers, and walk-in and reach-in coolers.
The DOE, AHRI asserts, did not follow proper protocol when promulgating the WICF final rule and issued energy-conservation standards that many in the industry feel are unfair, not technologically feasible, and unnecessarily burdensome to HVACR manufacturers.
Oct. 22. Meeting is Open to the Public and Available to Attend Via Webinar

The discussion will focus solely on the mechanics of measuring the relevant values and the downstream calculations needed to rate the efficiency of WICF refrigeration system basic models that are either sold as mixed or matched systems.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has issued a pre-publication Federal Register notice in response to the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute’s (AHRI’s) petition for reconsideration of DOE’s final rule on energy efficiency standards for walk-in coolers and freezers (WICFs). DOE announced it is denying the petition.
