    Overall emissions from the RAC sectors worldwide:

    The aggregated emissions from RAC sectors are based on two different stock calculation methods:

    The first method is a detailed calculation, based on sophisticated models using multiple predictors (generalised linear models and additive models). It was used for three appliance systems where sufficient data was available: split residential air conditioners, car air conditioners and domestic refrigerators. The second method is a simpler modelling approach based on ratios of RAC systems per inhabitants. This approach was used to determine the stock for ten additional appliance systems: self-contained air conditioners, commercial ducted splits, multi-splits, air conditioning chillers, mobile air conditioning in buses, stand-alone equipment (commercial refrigeration), condensing units (commercial refrigeration), centralised units in supermarkets, centralised industrial systems, and refrigerated transport.

    This calculated stock was then used to derive current and future unit sales figures and finally emissions and emission reduction potential.

    As numbers from the two calculation approaches were combined here and some individual appliance systems (such as rooftop ducted air conditioners, integral and condensing units in industrial refrigeration) could not be covered by either of them due to lack of appropriate data, the data shown here is the best possible estimation, but it may not reflect the actual situation in some countries. The results give an overview of the dimensions of emissions in the RAC sectors.

    Although this data has been compiled with care, its processing, analyses and modelling have required a number of compromises to be made. Therefore, this data may deviate from actual numbers in countries.

    UAC:

    The data for UAC is based on two different stock calculation methods:
    The first method is a detailed calculation, based on sophisticated models using multiple predictors (generalised linear models and additive models). It was used for split residential air conditioners, which make up the majority of UAC systems. The second method is a simpler modelling approach based on ratios of RAC systems per inhabitants. This approach was used to determine the stock for the appliance systems self-contained air conditioners, commercial ducted splits, and multi-splits.

    This calculated stock was then used to derive current and future unit sales, and finally emissions and emission reduction potential.

    As numbers from the two calculation approaches were aggregated here and the appliance systems split commercial air conditioners, rooftop ducted, and duct split residential air conditioners could not be covered by either of them due to lack of appropriate data, the data shown here is the best possible estimation, but it may not reflect the actual situation in some countries. The results give an overview of the dimensions of appliances numbers, unit sales and emissions in UAC.

    MAC:

    The data for MAC is based on two different stock calculation methods:
    The first method is a detailed calculation, based on sophisticated models using multiple predictors (generalised linear models and additive models). It was calculated for car air conditioners, which make up the majority of MAC systems. The second method is a simpler modelling approach based on ratios of RAC systems per inhabitants. This approach was used to determine the stock for bus air conditioning systems.

    This calculated stock was then used to derive current and future unit sales figures, and finally emissions and emission reduction potential.

    As numbers from the two calculation approaches were aggregated here air conditioners in trucks could not be covered by either of them due to lack of appropriate data, the data shown here is the best possible estimation, but it may not reflect the actual situation in some countries. The results give an overview of the dimensions of appliances numbers, unit sales and emissions in MAC.

    Domestic refrigeration:

    The data for domestic refrigeration is based on sophisticated models using multiple predictors (generalised linear models and additive models) to determine the stock of domestic refrigeration systems. The calculated stock was then used to derive current and future unit sales figures, and finally emissions and emission reduction potential.

    The data shown here is the best possible estimation, but it may not reflect the actual situation in some countries. The results give an overview of the dimensions of appliances numbers, unit sales and emissions in domestic refrigeration.
