09/2023 Publication - Technical Publication National Energy Efficiency Strategy for ACs and refrigerators in Mali
The demand for energy could be significantly reduced by improving energy efficiency. This would have a double effect: lower costs for consumers, and lower CO2 emissions. This report recommends steps Mali could take towards more energy efficiency.
06/2023 Publication - Technical Publication National Cooling Action Plan for Kenya
Rising demand for cooling in developing countries like Kenya necessitates sustainable solutions. Transitioning to energy-efficient technologies and eco-friendly refrigerants can reduce emissions and enhance access to sustainable cooling. Join us in implementing the National Cooling Action Plan for a brighter future.
06/2023 Publication International Safety Standards in Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Heat Pump
This paper is intended to provide policy makers, standard authorities and private sector representatives with an overview and orientation on international safety standards for RACHP systems, in particular addressing developing countries that endeavour to widen the use of environmentally friendly refrigerants in a safe way. The document identifies what is currently feasible with existing safety standard requirements, and what possibilities exist to ease the barriers and improve safety standards for the future.
06/2023 Publication - Video Video series | The advantages of natural refrigerants
What are natural refrigerants and why is it so important for us to use them? What advantages and what challenges arise when working with natural refrigerants?
Listen to refrigeration and air conditioning technicians from all over the world who answer these questions and explain the benefits of Green Cooling technologies.
06/2023 Publication - Video Video series | Women in Refrigeration
Female voices from the Cool Trainings 2022 - Women in the RAC sector speak out about their issues and challenges but also the pleasure of working in the industry and why female empowerment in the sector needs to be enhanced.
10/2022 Publication Excel based RAC sector NDC benchmarking tool
The objective is to enable decision-makers to do a self-analysis of the cooling sector-related measures included in the current NDC of a country or future updated NDCs. It follows the same logic and structure as presented in the guideline.
The ambition level resulting from the selected policy instruments provides an indication of whether the measures are going in the right direction.
10/2022 Publication - Inventories & Cooling Strategies Raising ambition in NDCs through holistic mitigation approaches in the cooling sector – Guidance for policymakers
Refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) is vital for human well-being, for example, to prevent food loss and guarantee supply with medical care with functioning cold chains and alleviate heat stress through space cooling. Cooling sector specific mitigation targets and measures can significantly contribute to achieving a country’s overall climate targets and therefore, need to be considered when defining and updating Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
10/2022 Publication - Technical Publication Can refrigerants with a GWP below 150 be used for Heat Pumps in Europe?
In the forthcoming report, the viability of applying alternative refrigerants with a GWP < 150 to domestic heat pumps (DHPs) with nominal heating capacities up to 50 kW will be considered. The assessment will reflect the proposed revision to the European F-gas regulation. DHPs currently use a variety of refrigerants, primarily R410A, but also R32, R407C, R404A, R417A, R454B, R454C, R452B, R448A, R449A, amongst others, all of which are medium or high GWP. A number of models already use R290, whilst other alternative refrigerants with GWP < 150 under consideration are R1270, R1234yf and R152a; all of which are flammable. These low GWP alternatives will be assessed, relative to R410A as baseline and R32 as leading medium GWP refrigerant.
10/2022 Publication - Technical Publication Can refrigerants with a GWP below 150 be used for split air conditioners in Europe?
The viability of applying selected refrigerants with a GWP < 150 to reversible room air conditioning systems (RACS) with nominal cooling capacities below 12 kW is considered. The assessment reflects the proposed revision to the European F-gas regulation.
08/2022 Publication - Technical Publication Greenhouse Gas Inventory for the Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Sector in Kenya
This report contains the greenhouse gas inventory for the refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) sector in Kenya.
