4:00 pm – 5:00 pm Unravelling Government Regulations Across

the Commercial Refrigeration Sector 1 PDH

by Michael Pennington, Director of Engineering, Heatcraft Refrigeration Products

Abstract - Navigating the complex and dynamic commercial refrigeration regulatory landscape and understanding alternative refrigerants can be daunting. For at least the next decade, there are important dates to prepare for Annual Walk-In Energy Factor (AWEF) updates from the Department of Energy (DOE), and new and evolving regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and from individual states, such as those with governors in the United States Climate Alliance (USCA).Knowing which, and when, regulations apply to enable clear and concise communication to customers is imperative. We must be prepared to source and select the right equipment, with the right refrigerants, that meet regulations efficiently and cost effectively.

Biography - Michael Pennington is director of engineering at Heatcraft Refrigeration Products, with more than 37 years of experience primarily in HVACR. During his time in industry, Mike has cultivated extensive knowledge in engineering, manufacturing, and product development, and is well-versed in the complex regulatory environment – including current and future Department of Energy (DOE) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements and the evolving low-GWP and alternative refrigerants landscape.

Mike joined Lennox in 2010, and Heatcraft in 2017 and manages a collaborative team, often working with research and development to adapt to a “regulated world” and position Heatcraft as a leader. He is involved with government affairs committees – along with AHRI, HARDI, NAFEM, NASRC and other industry associations – and advocates for policy to benefit both the industry and the environment. Mike earned a bachelor of science in electrical engineering from Oklahoma State University.
