This research project assesses the market potential for efficient dipper well technologies in the ComEd service territory.


The project team is exploring the market potential of efficient dipper well technologies at foodservice facilities in the ComEd service territory. Previous field studies have shown the conservation capabilities of these technologies and their suitability for the foodservice market in other states, but their potential in this market is not yet understood. The project team is conducting market actor interviews with end-users, distributors and health departments, as well as surveys to determine the market potential and characterize the supply chain of the efficient dipper well technologies. They are also completing an econometric analysis of the identified technologies. The results of this research will inform future implementation strategies for identified efficient dipper well technologies based on market interest, replacement difficulty, return on investment, and savings impact.
