The IEA estimates that by 2050 energy demand from space cooling will triple. Entering into force in 2019, the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol seeks to reduce the global warming impacts of air conditioners and refrigerators through reducing the use of refrigerants with strong global warming effects. Such a shift in refrigerant offers a great opportunity for energy efficiency improvements during appliance re-engineering.
In this webinar, the World Wide Fund for Nature, the Copenhagen Center on Energy Efficiencyand Topten International Group bring together key experts to provide an overview of the Kigali Amendment, highlight the importance of integrating energy efficiency within its scope, and explore how to speed up its implementation.
