News from IIR members: Carrier CO2NSERVATION meter

The Carrier CO2NSERVATION meter calculates avoided greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as a result of the installation of high efficiency Carrier air-conditioning, heating and refrigeration systems by customers around the world since 2000. Buildings in the USA alone consume approximately 40% of all energy, and within buildings, heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems account for approximately 35% of energy use. The meter compares the projected GHG emissions from selected Carrier products with emissions from comparable baseline products, with the difference representing the avoided emissions.
