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.
