Grocery Store Measures Door Gasket, Automatic Door Closers, and Strip Curtain Laboratory Testing
2 Agenda 1. Field Research – PECI 2. Lab Testing – BPA 3. EnergySmart Grocer Program Changes - BPA
3 I. Field Research PECI captured following gasket data Door type Product Door Manufacturer Gasket Type Door Dimensions Length of damage Description of damage Captured data for 350 reach-in and walk- in doors. Mainly C-Stores
4 Field Research Results Case TypeAverage Damage (inches) Low Temp Reach-n12 Med Temp Reach-in27 Walk-in Low Temp12 Walk-in Med Temp31
10 Lab Testing Plans Door Gaskets 3 Cases: Low Temperature Walk-In, Medium Temperature Walk-In, Low Temperature Reach-In 3 Conditions: No Gasket, Typical Damaged Gasket, Fully Functional Gasket Strip Curtains 2 Cases: Low Temperature Walk-In, Medium Temperature Walk-In Automatic door opening of 4 minutes/2 hours. Compare to Fully Functional Gasket
11 Laboratory Testing – Interim Results Completed testing and report on low temperature reach-in. Completed testing and report on low temperature walk-in. Completed testing on medium temperature walk-in – report in 1 week. Completed testing on strip curtains – report in 2 weeks.
16 ESG Program Changes Currently - assign 0 kWh/yr to door gaskets and closers for approx. 10 miles of installed gaskets and over 150 automatic door closers. Now – Assign energy savings based on lab testing (slides following).
17 Estimated Annual Energy Savings Gaskets - Tested
18 Estimated Annual Energy Savings Gaskets – Proposed
19 Estimated Annual Energy Savings Auto Door Closers (= No Gasket)
20 Next Steps Complete test reports on Medium Temperature Walk-In and Strip Curtains. Evaluate results with wider audience including peer review. Incorporate revised results into ESG, as appropriate. RTF provisionally deemed measures
