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.
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.
