Newly revised efficiency standards for ACs in Brazil and India
Stringent minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for air-conditioning (AC) equipment contribute to cutting down the energy demand for ACs globally. Setting up and periodically revising energy efficiency regulations on a national scale is key to moving towards more high-efficiency equipment.
In a 2018 report, the International Energy Agency (IEA) stated that setting up more stringent minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for air-conditioning (AC) equipment could increase the average efficiency of installed equipment. As a result, an “efficient cooling ...
