AMCA310a Introduction to Fan Energy Index (FEI) for Stand-Alone Fans (AMCA310a)


Developed by Air Movement and Control Association (AMCA) International, fan energy index (FEI) is an efficiency metric designed in part to drive significant and quantifiable energy savings through use in codes, utility rebate programs, and regulations. This self-guided course examines FEI as it applies to stand-alone fans. It describes the concepts behind FEI, advantages of FEI compared with the fan-efficiency-grade (FEG) metric it is replacing, how to use FEI to estimate lifetime fan energy savings, and methods for applying FEI in building codes and efficiency programs.
