Please find below the RFP 18.01 on Energy Efficient Refrigerator Glass Doors for the Commercial Sector. The overall objective of the project is to develop the supporting research and a substantiation document that can be used by participating CEATI members with their respective regulators in launching a prescriptive CDM or DSM program offer.
The aim is to quantify natural gas savings for heating season (i.e. less heat transfer through doors reduces heating system loads), and electricity savings through reduced refrigeration loads (and any air conditioning savings, if applicable) for refrigerator units with glass doors, versus units without glass doors. The assessment should include the ASHRAE climate zones representative of the service territories of the project sponsors to incorporate local savings.
