Regulation of Commercial Fan Efficiency: An In-depth Exploration of the Department of Energy’s Fan and Blower Rule

Business Energy, Jul/Aug 2016, by Trinity Persful.
http://foresternetwork.com/business-energy-magazine/be-energy/be-energy-efficiency/regulation-of-commercial-fan-efficiency/

"Fans consume 14% of the electricity purchased by industrial and commercial buildings. Yet, fan efficiency has escaped the attention of those who design efficiency into the air systems they specify. That is about to change. The US Department of Energy (DOE) will publish their proposed rule this year covering fans from 1 to 200 horsepower. This new regulation will determine compliance at the design point of the fan."
