Efficient Commercial Rooftop HVAC (ERTUs) Advancement Plan

Efficient Rooftop Unit Advancement PlanThis Advancement Plan describes information to be developed and research conducted to establish an Efficient Rooftop Units (ERTU) Market Transformation Initiative (MTI). Rooftop units are forced-air systems that package the evaporator, condenser coils, fans, and heating components into a single unit to serve a building’s heating, cooling, and ventilation needs. Three main design improvements addressing supply efficiency, heat recovery, and an improved shell can deliver 10–40% energy savings beyond today’s minimum efficiency RTUs. Greater savings and grid benefits can be achieved through the addition of advanced controls strategies.  CalMTA will use data and research collected to further inform and refine the proposed market transformation theory, intervention strategies, and metrics and data to determine if this MTI should be recommended for implementation.
