This publication is a comprehensive handbook for the measurement, reporting, and verification of greenhouse gas emissions in the refrigeration and air-conditioning sector.
The handbook outlines a blueprint MRV system based on international best practices, which will be applicable for the refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) sector in each country. The paper provides a practical step-by-step approach for policy makers and enforcement bodies in the RAC sector.
It consists of the following chapters:
- Chapter 1 demonstrates the sector’s relevance to greenhouse gas mitigation and highlights the benefits and need for an MRV system in the context of international reporting mechanisms.
- Chapter 2 discusses the blueprint design of a RAC MRV. This entails a detailed definition of the scope and an elaboration of the individual components of the blueprint.
- Chapter 3 provides a step-by-step guide on how a RAC MRV system can be set-up and implemented. Guiding questions and decision trees were developed to support every step.
