Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Walk-In Cooler and Freezer Refrigeration Systems


<p id="h-1">AGENCY: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Department of Energy.</p>
<p id="h-2">ACTION: Final rule.</p>
<p id="h-3">SUMMARY: The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (“EPCA”), as amended, prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers. This final rule details a series of energy conservation standards pertaining to certain discrete classes of refrigeration systems used in this equipment. These standards, which are consistent with recommendations presented by a working group that included refrigeration system manufacturers, installers, and energy efficiency advocates, have been determined to result in the significant conservation of energy and achieve the maximum improvement in energy efficiency that is technologically feasible and economically justified.</p>
<p id="h-4">DATES: The effective date of this rule is September 8, 2017. Compliance with the standards established for WICF refrigeration systems in this final rule is required on and after July 10, 2020.</p>
