"By cataloging the continuous wave of new equipment aimed at making commercial buildings more efficient," said Harvey Sachs, ACEEE's buildings program director, "we developed an online resource that can stay abreast of all of the new developments coming to market." He added, "We plan to update the information periodically and to provide other enhancements in order to make life easier for commercial equipment decision-makers who are overloaded with information and competing claims about performance."
The guide addresses three areas common to commercial buildings: lighting, HVAC systems, and energy-efficient motors.
The online guide also covers office equipment, packaged refrigeration, and ice makers. The guide is available at http://aceee.org/buildings/coml_equp/index.htm.
