Hi, Does anyone have any reliable data sources for kitchen loads - profiles, peaks, EUIs, I'll take anything but the more context the better. It is tough to find this data out there. If you have water data for kitchens I'll take that as well Thanks

The K-12 Schools Advanced Energy Design Guide ( has a list of typical kitchen equipment, input rates, and profiles. Focused on school kitchens but could be modified and applied to other building types. Pages 43-47

This document ( is old but has good info on typical gas equipment, input rates, and profiles in different building types.

The Quick Service Restaurant AEDG ( has some good info on cooking EUIs for restaurants as well as a few sample use profiles. Starting on Page 3.9

This one ( has more general data about commercial kitchen equipment in Chapter 2.

I haven't looked into kitchen water data.
