2020 PDC Summit Webinar Series
Emerging Electrical Loads Research for NEC Demand factors
April 30, 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. CT
Speakers: Walt Vernon, Shannon Bunsen, Troy Savage
At the last two PDC Summits, the presenters offered insight into the research performed to alter the demand factors for plug loads and cord-connected medical equipment. The research focused on changing the National Electrical Code demand factors with the goal of allowing smaller electrical systems to aid in construction cost savings. They are working with ASHE and the NFPA Healthcare Section to finalize deployment of this research into the NEC and will provide updates on this topic.
- Describe energy consumption profiles of various modalities of medical equipment
- Identify how EPA might be able to develop an Energy Star rating for Medical Equipment
- Explain how NEC demand factors and ASHRAE may be evolving in response to this research
- Identify saving opportunities for health care organizations in the procurement and operation of medical equipment
