CX(s) Applied: B5.1
Offices(s): Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
In this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR), DOE is proposing energy conservation standards for walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers, defined as endorsed storage spaces refrigerated to temperatures, respectively. above, and at or below 32 degrees Fahrenheit that can be walked into, and have a total chilled storage area of less than 3,000 square feel. In this NOPR, DOE is proposing energy conservation standards for the individual components that make up
a walk-in cooler or walk-in freezer: the panels. doors (both display and non-display). and refrigeration system, These proposed standards. if adopted, would apply to all products listed in Table 1.1 of the NOPR and manufactured in, or imported into, the United States on or after three years after the publication date of any final rule establishing energy conservation standards for walk-ins."
