Ice Machine Load Shifting & Upsizing Savings Report
This Emerging Technologies (ET) report evaluates the energy efficiency benefit and load-shifting potential of ice machines in four foodservice facilities. Low efficiency machines were replaced with energy efficient models while load shifting ice machine operation exclusively to non-peak utility periods.

Commercial Ice Machines: The Potential for Energy Efficiency and Demand Response
This ACEEE paper evaluates the potential for non-peak (load shifted) operation or demand response control of existing ice machines, and the ability for increasing ice machine efficiency through equipment retrofit where load-shifting or demand-response is not feasible.

Ice Machine Upgrade and Load Shifting Field Study
This study replaced an older, standard-efficiency machine with a energy-efficient model. The ice machine was then operated with complete non-peak, load shifted operation.
