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.
07/2022 Publication - Video Video | Photovoltaic-powered Air Conditioning in Buildings: Technical economic analysis
On 9th June, GIZ Proklima hosted a webinar to present and discuss the results of a new study, which covers global market trends of solar PV-powered split-type AC systems and its technical components, economic analyses for hybrid and off-grid cases carried out in thirteen partner countries worldwide, and a case study on solar AC by Médecins Sans Frontières in Haiti. The study aims to contribute to further developing the highly potential but still infant PV AC market.
