EVA Publishes New Vending Energy Management Protocol

BRUSSELS -- The European Vending Association has issued Version 3.0 of its Energy Management Protocol for vending. It succeeds the edition published in 2005.

According to EVA, the principal difference between Version 3.0 and its predecessor is that the new document is divided into two parts: EMP 3.0a, which covers chilled, frozen and ambient-temperature equipment, and EMP 3.0b, dealing with hot and cold beverage machines.

The EVA Technical Committee plans to submit EMP 3.0b to the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC).

EVA reports that its Technical Committee and some of its member national associations observed an increasing demand for standards by which the energy consumption of vending machines could be compared. The first energy management protocol was published in 1999, in response to this need. Since then, EVA notes, energy has become an essential issue for the industry, so the Technical Committee has undertaken the task of updating the document.

For all machines, the energy consumption is measured in standby and actual vending conditions. For refrigerated machines, energy consumption also is measured after refilling. Compliance with the standard is voluntary, but the association strongly recommends it.

EVA observes that a standard for energy measurement recognized throughout Europe improves the image of the vending industry as a responsible trade that adheres to high quality standards.

The EVA represents the interests of the entire European vending industry before the European Institutions and other authorities and organizations. Its membership includes national vending associations as well as manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and operators. EVA is online at vending-europe.eu.
