This report presents an analysis of the cost and benefit of improving efficiency of air conditioners in India, based on a bottom-up engineering analysis of key AC components such as compressors and heat exchangers.
This report focuses on financial incentive programs that aim to mitigate the energy consumption attributable to the growing stock of ACs. This report also describes how incentive programs can be designed to address other pressing concerns related to growing AC use, such as challenges to power supply reliability resulting from increased peak demand and the global warming potential (GWP) of AC refrigerants.
This paper presents a draft specification for demand-response ready air conditioners in India, building from international experiences and from existing International Electrotechnical Commission standards.
This report attempts to shed light on the global landscape and enable meaningful comparisons at a macro-level which are helpful and necessary to policymakers in the development of sound and optimized energy efficiency policies.
