Air Conditioners

A new 4E Project was approved at the 4E ExCo meeting in Beijing, China (March 2019) for a desktop study on Air Conditioners.  This project aims to:

a)    Undertake a detailed review of test methods for room air conditioners in the different 4E economies, and the implication of any differences;

b)   Identify the efficiency metrics used in these economies, explain what they show and how they are calculated.

This was followed by a Cooling Workshop that explored Opportiunities for Improving Cooling Efficiency.  Presentations from this workshop can be downloaded here.
