This document was prepared as an account of work sponsored by the United States Government in support of the Superefficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) initiative. Its objective is to identify potential room AC (air conditioner) efficiency improvements and their incremental costs, as well as to provide approximate global and country-specific estimates of total energy savings potential. The overarching goal is to provide relevant information to support design of policies and programs that will accelerate the penetration of superefficient room ACs. Based on the information presented in the cost versus efficiency curve, the cost effective potential can be estimated at different levels of electricity costs which vary across consumer categories.
Extract from the table of contents: engineering analysis (types of residential air conditioner; water-cooled systems; opportunities to increase air conditioner efficiency); room AC market and energy consumption trends; cost effectiveness analysis; energy saving potential; conclusions.
In the appendices: climate specific efficiency improvement options (evaporative cooling; phase change materials; free cooling for window/louvered air conditioners; storage of cooling at night; radiative cooling-cool roofs); AC manufacturing cost curves for various economies; rebound effect; sensitivity analysis.
