Applying Fan Energy Index (FEI) in Regulations and Applications - PAPER
Fan energy index (FEI) is replacing fan efficiency grade as a metric for efficiency provisions in ASHRAE standards and the International Energy Conservation Code. Additionally, U.S. appliance-efficiency regulations for commercial and industrial fans and blowers are being developed around FEI. FEI is more than a rating metric, however. It also is a design tool, one that can be used by application and design engineers to reduce energy consumption through right-sizing of fans for variable-air-volume (VAV) and constant-speed (CS) systems. This article summarizes FEI as a regulatory metric and provides guidance for using FEI in VAV and CS applications.

Providing easy-to-access materials is a hallmark of the AMCA educational effort. These presentations have been featured at symposia, conferences, and seminars around the globe and represent a ready resource for explaining the sir system industry.
AHR Expo 2020 - Orlando Presentations
These presentations represent the AMCA sponsored educational sessions at the AHR Expo 2020 held in Orlando in February.
(Mr. Int-Hout's presentation references seven articles he has published in the ASHRAE Journal. Those articles and others can be found on the Krueger Website at no cost, but registering your contact information is required: Click Here
Video offers a thorough and entertaining view of what AMCA has to offer—from services to certification, from laboratories to applications—AMCA videos are a great introduction to the air systems industry.
For non-engineers, this introductory course explains the concepts behind FEI, advantages of FEI compared with the fan-efficiency-grade (FEG) metric, how to use FEI to estimate lifetime fan energy savings, and methods for applying FEI in building codes and efficiency programs.
