Ultra-Low Temperature Freezers: Opening the Door to Energy Savings in Laboratories

Project Number ET14PGE1721, ET16SCE1060, ET15SDG1092 Organization PG&E, SCE, SDG&E End-use Process Sector Commercial, Industrial, Public, Other Project Year(s) 2014 - 2016

Project Summary

This ET project would validate the energy savings associated with Ultra Low Temperature (ULT) freezer systems.  ULT freezer systems which normally operate at either -40°C or -85°C range; are a large or often the largest energy consuming equipment in university, hospital, and other commercial biotech laboratories.  The project would conduct both lab-based as well as field-based testing and provide recommendations for energy efficient products in this category.
