Presentations and speakers:
• "Bundle-Based Energy Efficiency Technology Solutions for California (BEETS for California)" by Andrea Marr, Director, Willdan
This California Energy Commission–funded project features York chillers with very low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant, advanced lighting and HVAC controls, and dynamic laboratory ventilation. Each of these projects was designed and implemented as a “bundle”—in California, there are over 80,000 buildings that can deploy one, two, or all three of these bundles.
This project was funded by the California Emerging Technologies Program and the California Energy Commission’s Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) program.
• "Increasing the Adoption of Climate-Friendly Refrigeration Systems in California’s Supermarkets" by Aanchal Kohli, Air Resources Engineer, California Air Resources Board
CARB recently launched the F-gas Reduction Incentive Program (FRIP), the first statewide incentive program to increase the adoption of climate-friendly refrigeration systems and reduce emissions of high global-warming potential refrigerants commonly used in the retail food sector. FRIP was designed to address the main barriers to the adoption of these refrigeration systems, namely, the higher upfront costs and a lack of familiarity with these systems. CARB will discuss the main features of the program, the grant recipients, and expected emission reductions from the projects that will be funded. CARB will discuss its partnership with the Emerging Technologies Program to provide measurement and verification expertise to evaluate the performance of the newly installed refrigeration systems.
The F-gas Reduction Incentive Program (FRIP) is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide initiative that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment—particularly in disadvantaged communities.
