Heat Pump With Variable Stroke Compressor Saves 50% on Energy
S-RAM Dynamics has been awarded a $400,000 grant from the Department of Energy toward a $1 million project to help commercialize an energy efficient heat pump for commercial and industrial customers to reduce energy consumption by more than 50 percent compared to other common refrigeration and heating systems.
The system is being developed in coordination with Purdue University, and performance testing will be done at DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory. S-RAM is looking to demonstrate the technology at three major US retail and commercial facilities late next year, says Lee Jestings, president of S-RAM. The plan is to install the first commercial units within 24 months.
