New York Energy $martSM Cool It! Market Research Report

Research Report A053


Eric Mendelsohn, Steve Nadel, and Sarah Black


This research was conducted at the end of the New York Energy $martSM Cool It! campaign in order to characterize the New York State marketplace for energy-efficient commercial packaged refrigeration equipment. Baseline evaluation metrics and an initial depiction of the marketplace were established in 2003 at the beginning of the campaign. This report updates that research, describes some of the changes over the past two years, draws conclusions, and makes recommendations based on a series of surveys of target market actors, including equipment manufacturers, distributors, and end-users.
