Manitowoc Foodservice Expands Industry-Leading Enerlogic Program

January 26th, 2009

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. – EnerLogic™, the industry-leading energy conservation program, launched in 2004 by Enodis, has just gotten bigger.  Manitowoc Foodservice, which recently acquired Enodis, has announced plans to unify its own EnergyMizer™ program under the EnerLogic™ name. 

“For years, EnergyMizer™ helped foodservice operators clearly see ways in which they could maximize efficiency and energy savings,” said Dean Landeche, vice president of marketing for Manitowoc Foodservice.  “Our program recognized third-party standards for energy conservation for our line of walk-in freezers and coolers, and more recently water conservation standards for our ice makers.  Without a doubt, EnergyMizer™ has served us well.  The reason we’re consolidating under EnerLogic™ is because of that program’s broader reach with standards for gas, as well as electricity and water.  We needed a program that would recognize savings within our broader product portfolio and felt EnerLogic™ was the perfect solution.”  Landeche says the company will fully leverage and grow this program in the future as one of its core initiatives.

The EnerLogic™ program was designed to help operators maximize energy savings and profit.  It originally covered more than 600 products within the Enodis portfolio of brands and has now expanded to more than 1,000 of the most energy efficient and environmentally responsible pieces within the Manitowoc Foodservice unified product portfolio.

Only equipment meeting stringent third-party standards qualifies for the EnerLogic™ seal. Because different types of equipment have different standards, depending on the type of energy and conservation benefits involved, the EnerLogic™ program incorporates a combination of third-party standards, including—
  • Meeting or exceeding California Energy Commission rebate standards, or
  • Being ENERGY STAR® rated, or
  • Meeting criteria outlined by the Federal Energy Management Program, including products that—
    • Incorporate new energy-saving technology,
    • Involve renewable energy,
    • Demonstrate water efficiency, and/or
    • Feature sustainable design and operations.

Manitowoc Foodservice is a proud to have more than 500 products rated by ENERGY STAR®, the joint program of the U.S. Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Agency that monitors and rates energy efficient products and services.  In addition, Manitowoc Foodservice is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), the nation’s foremost coalition of leaders from every sector of the building industry. The core purpose of this group is to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy and prosperous space that improves the quality of life.

A Portfolio to Meet Every Need
Products within the consolidated EnerLogic™ portfolio represent the majority of Manitowoc Foodservice brands including Cleveland, Convotherm®, Delfield®, Frymaster®, Garland®, Harford®, Jackson, Kolpak®, Koolaire®, Lincoln, Manitowoc® Ice and McCall®. The list also contains energy-consumption data required by many programs to complete rebate forms.

In addition to the EnerLogic™ program, Manitowoc Foodservice offers a variety of energy- and resource-conserving products in categories for which there are no established third-party standards. These include Lincoln Conveyor Ovens and warewashing systems by Jackson.

How Much Can Be Saved with Energy-Efficient Equipment?
According to the Consortium for Energy Efficiency, a nonprofit group dedicated to energy savings in residential and commercial applications (www.cee1.org), the foodservice market consists of the most energy-intensive commercial buildings, consuming close to 250,000 Btu/sq. ft., roughly 2.5 times more energy per square foot than any other commercial buildings. By addressing technologies related to cooking, refrigeration and sanitation, significant energy and water savings can be achieved.
 
Energy consumption in a typical foodservice facility is approximately 30 percent for cooking, 19 percent for refrigeration and 10 percent for sanitation. These three combined uses represent roughly 50 percent of the energy consumed in a typical foodservice facility. The total savings potential from a more efficient commercial kitchen can vary from 10 to 30 percent depending on the technology installed.
