Presentation Outline

  • Background

  • Measure Overview

  • Staff Highlighted Areas

  • UES Workbook

    • Measure Descriptions

    • Measure Analysis and Input Details

    • Savings, Cost, and Cost Effectiveness

  • RTF Staff Recommendation

  • Proposed Decision


Background

Background

  • Multiple Grocery measures found Out-of-Compliance

    • Subsequent analysis determined remaining potential small

    • Extended sunset date at November 2013 meeting

    • Staff to develop plan to bring back into compliance

  • Grocery measures in question:

    • ECMs for Walk-ins – Done

    • Walk-in Evaporator Fan ECMotor Controllers – Done

    • Compressor Head Fan Motor Retrofit to ECM – Done

    • Display Case LEDs (Open Cases) - Done

    • Floating Head Pressure Controls for Single Compressor Systems - Done

    • Door Gasket Replacement - Done

    • Auto Door Closers

    • Strip Curtains

Note: Remaining potential based on PNW territory only.


What hasn t been done

What hasn’t been done

  • Estimating measure interactions very limited

    • Only looked at HVAC interaction within measure

    • Possible to have interactions among measures


Rtf direction to take

RTF direction to take

  • Last time RTF agreed with staff recommendation to ignore interactions for these small saver grocery measures

    • Staff estimate is that interactions are likely small and do not warrant further research

    • Furthermore, estimation methods of measures are varied and it may not be practical to reliably determine interactions

Measure overview

Measure Overview

  • What does it do?

    • Installs a new Door Auto Closer on existing walk-in or reach-in case that either has one that is broken or does not have one at all

    • Savings occur from:

      • Runtime reduction on refrigeration system

      • Load reduction on store HVAC heating system

        • Assuming grocery stores heat most of the year

Staff highlighted areas

Staff Highlighted Areas

  • Unintentional door open time

    • Based on professional judgment only

    • Savings vary by orders of magnitude within the range of reasonable assumptions


Unintentional door open time

Unintentional Door Open Time

  • Value is meant to represent time door is left unintentionally open (i.e. almost closed)

    • Not the same as door open/close times for accessing product

  • Gasket study open times as a reality test


Unintentional door open time1

Unintentional Door Open Time

  • But savings are directly proportional to this estimate, with no data to support it


Savings cost cost effectiveness

Savings, Cost, & Cost Effectiveness

  • Go to the following sections in the Presentation tab in the proposed measure workbook:

    • Measure savings

    • Measure costs

    • Measure TRC B/C ratios


Rtf staff recommendation

RTF Staff Recommendation

  • Deactivate measure due to high uncertainty in Doorway Open Time Factor and resulting high uncertainty in savings.

  • Set the measure status to “Deactivated”


Proposed decision

Proposed Decision

“I _______________ move that the RTF set the measure status of the ‘Door Auto Closer’ measure to ‘Deactivated.’”


Strip curtains on walk ins

Strip Curtains on Walk-ins


Measure overview1

Measure Overview

  • What does it do?

    • Installs a strip curtain on a walk-in freezer or cooler where none existed before (so my picture was a little misleading)

    • Savings occur from:

      • Load reduction of refrigeration system

      • Load reduction on store HVAC heating system

        • Assuming grocery stores heat most of the year

Staff highlighted areas1

Staff Highlighted Areas

  • Temperature of Surroundings Parameter

    • Some walk-ins open to unconditioned spaces

    • No adjustment for PNW compared to CA

  • Strip Curtain Takeback

    • Do door open times increase after strip curtains are installed?

    • Results are only moderately sensitive to this effect.

  • Strip Curtain EUL

    • CA program evaluation found that measure was typically replaced well before commonly assumed lifetime.


Temperature of surroundings

Temperature of Surroundings

  • Used to determine infiltration air temp

  • A small swing of infiltration temp produces a large swing in savings

    • Savings increase as infiltration temp increases

  • ADM study results use storage area temps in respective establishments

    • These include some indoor and unconditioned zones

  • No easy way to access ADM data on climate zone weightings to discern % of outdoor/indoor walk-ins used

  • Recommend limiting measure eligibility to walk-ins that open to conditioned spaces only

    • Likely that storage areas/grocery stores same in PNW and CA

    • Walk-ins that open to outdoor spaces have higher infiltration air temps; savings potential may be much larger


Strip curtain takeback

Strip Curtain Takeback

  • Door open time is a primary determinant

  • Some data on pre-install door open time

  • No statistical data on the ratio of post- to pre-install door open times

  • Some anecdotal evidence does suggest significant takeback can occur (i.e. post/pre ratio > 1)

  • Results only vary by a factor of 2 across a wide range of assumptions (from post/pre ratio of 0.25 to 3).

Strip curtain takeback1

Strip Curtain Takeback

  • Effect of varying post-install times on savings.


Strip curtain takeback2

Strip Curtain Takeback

  • Recommend incorporating some level of takeback in estimate to

    • reflect anecdotal evidence

    • place savings in the middle of the range of reasonable estimates

      • Staff using a ratio of 2:1 for post-pre door open times

  • No significant data on this estimate

  • Up to RTF professional judgment


Strip curtain lifetime

Strip Curtain Lifetime

  • Typical EUL is four years.

  • However, CA impact evaluation found that program-installed strip curtains were typically maintained more frequently.

These findings suggest a mean time to replacement of 2 to 3 years.

Savings cost cost effectiveness1

Savings, Cost, & Cost Effectiveness

  • Go to the following sections in the Presentation tab in the proposed measure workbook:

    • Measure savings

    • Measure costs

    • Measure TRC B/C ratios


Rtf staff recommendation1

RTF Staff Recommendation

  • Limit eligibility of measure to walk-ins that open to conditioned spaces only

  • Assume a level of takeback that results in savings in the middle of the range of possible savings.

    • Staff recommends a post/pre door open time ratio of 2.

  • Set measure life to 2.5 years.


Proposed decision1

Proposed Decision

“I _______________ move that the RTF:

  • Approve the ‘Strip Curtain’ measure as a “Small Saver” UES;

    • Limited to walk-ins that open to conditions spaces only

    • Using a post-install to pre-install door open time ratio of 2.0

    • Using a measure life of 2.5 years

  • Set the measure status to ‘Active;’ and

  • Set the sunset date to July, 2019.”
