There are many opportunities for water-savings in commercial kitchens and restaurants. EPA’s WaterSense program will discuss commercial kitchen equipment, including equipment that is ENERGY STAR or WaterSense labeled, such as dishwashers, ice machines, pre-rinse spray valves, and steam cooking equipment. Attendees will hear about best practices related to operations and maintenance techniques, retrofit options, and replacement options for each equipment type.
Energy Management Systems, such as ISO 50001 and Superior Energy Performance (SEP), are powerful tools to ensure that a facility is continuously reducing its energy usage and environmental footprint. PennTAP will review the steps and requirements for certification under each system. PennTAP will also outline the benefits beyond reducing energy costs.
