Food service facilities are the largest energy users in the commercial building sector, consuming as much as five times more energy per square foot than any other type of commercial building equipment. While substantial research has been conducted on the larger cooking equipment however, little is currently known about the specific energy use of the smaller plug load appliances, which are responsible for a substantial portion of the kitchen operation and add up to be a significant energy load. Silicon Valley Power (SVP) worked with Frontier Energy to understand the energy consumption of smaller plug load food service appliances operating without the removal of heat load in the commercial food sector. This study identifies operational changes to reduce the energy consumption for the food service industry, thereby reducing the cost of operating the equipment and cooling the facility.
This webinar will demonstrate and characterize the energy savings potential, cost effectiveness, and improved cooking performance of energy efficient equipment when compared with baseline equipment. The speakers also cover Frontier Energy’s report, Commercial Food Service Plug Load Monitoring and Replacement in Silicon Valley Power Service Territory, highlighting the resulting energy savings, lessons learned, and utility energy efficiency program recommendations. Utilities can use this information to determine new equipment to incorporate into their energy efficiency programs and educate their customers on alternative food service equipment.
