This dataset has the following 15 columns:

Column NameAPI Column NameData TypeDescriptionSample Values
ENERGY STAR Unique IDpd_idnumberThe ENERGY STAR Unique ID (ESUID) is a string of seven numbers EPA assigns to an ENERGY STAR model or set of models with unique performance characteristics. This ESUID is unique to both the model and product specification version and is assigned by EPA upon receipt of certification information from the certification body. Each row within the product list will have a unique ESUID. Developers may wish to use this ESUID to track information on certified models in their information systems.
ENERGY STAR Partnerenergy_star_partnertextAn organization that signed a Partnership Agreement with EPA to manufacture or private label ENERGY STAR qualified products.
Brand Namebrand_nametextAn identifier assigned by the manufacturer or private labeler to a product or family/series of products for sales and marketing purposes.
Model Namemodel_nametextAn identifier assigned by the manufacturer or private labeler to a product or family/series of products for sales and marketing purposes.
Model Numbermodel_numbertextA distinguishing identifier, usually alphanumeric, assigned to a product by the manufacturer or private labeler.
Additional Model Informationadditional_model_informationtextThis column includes for the qualified model or family, family members, additional model names, model numbers and other identifying information associated with a product or family/series of products for sales and marketing purposes. Other identifying information includes, but is not limited to, SKUs, UPC codes, retail numbers, and/or descriptions of models included/not included in the reported Model Family.
TypetypetextENERGY STAR certified water coolers must be one of the following product types: Cold Only Units: These units dispense cold water only and have a refrigeration cycle. Hot and Cold Units: These units dispense both hot and cold water. Some units may have a third room-temperature tap. These units have both an electric resistance heater and a refrigeration cycle. Cook and Cold Units: These units dispense both cold and room-temperature water. These units have a refrigeration cycle
Water Sourcewater_sourcetextThe source of water for the water cooler. Bottled: A bottle or reservoir supplies water to the water cooler. Tap Water Source: The water cooler is connected to a pressurized water source.
Water Storagewater_storagetextFor storage water coolers, thermally conditioned water is stored in a tank in the water cooler and is available instantaneously. For on demand water coolers, water is heated as it is requested, which typically takes a few minutes to deliver.
Refrigerated Compartmentrefrigerated_compartmenttextA water cooler which, in addition to the primary function of cooling and dispensing potable water, includes a refrigerated compartment with or without provisions for making ice.
Energy Use (On Mode With No Water Draw) (kWh/day)energy_use_on_mode_with_no_water_draw_kwh_daynumberThe required energy to maintain cold and/or hot water at appropriate dispensing temperatures with no water being withdrawn.
Date Available On Marketdate_available_on_marketcalendar_dateThe date that the model is available for purchase.
Date Qualifieddate_qualifiedcalendar_dateThe date on which the product was confirmed to meet the ENERGY STAR specification.
MarketsmarketstextIncludes products sold in the U.S. and/or Canada and other ENERGY STAR partner countries.
CB Model Identifierenergy_star_model_identifiertextA unique string of characters assigned by certification bodies (CBs) to identify a model or set of models with the same performance characteristics. This identifier should remain the same for a model even if it is recertified to a new version of an ENERGY STAR specification. This string of characters is determined by CBs and is not the ENERGY STAR Unique ID assigned by EPA.
