DOE 2020 Regulatory Impact on Commercial Refrigeration

April, 2rd, 2019


One of the most relevant questions contractors, manufacturers and refrigeration equipment wholesalers are asking is “How will the new DOE regulations impact commercial refrigeration?” The commercial refrigeration industry is in the midst of a significant change that will affect the majority of its players inclusive of suppliers, contractors, and end-users across industries such as foodservice and supermarkets. The lion’s share of commercial refrigeration equipment will soon be subject to the Department of Energy’s (DOE) federally mandated minimum efficiencies. These DOE refrigeration regulations establish new standards for the manufacture and use of refrigeration equipment for use in walk-in cooler and freezer applications. The regulations are intended to substantially reduce domestic energy consumption by mandating specific levels of efficiency.
