Description of the Webinar
Ultra-low-temperature laboratory freezers (ULTs) can be one of the most energy-intensive pieces of equipment in a laboratory, with some using as much electricity as a small house. The U.S. Department of Energy, through the BBA, recently conducted a field demonstration of three high-efficiency ULT models. We found that the high-efficiency ULTs used between 20% and 66% less electricity per cubic foot than typical ULTs over the course of the demonstration, when the data were compared at the same set of operating conditions. These results suggest that high-efficiency ULTs can save laboratories a substantial amount of energy and utility costs. If implemented on a wide scale, high-efficiency ULTs can have a very large energy savings potential nationwide.
