Access White Paper

Air conditioning is one of the appliances with the highest electricity consumption. In some cases, electricity consumption for A/C reaches more than 10% of the total electricity consumption. The number of installed air conditioning units has been growing at a fast pace in recent years and is expected to keep growing in the future.

- Usually the use of air conditioners coincides with the peak load of the electricity grid, thus a situation (requiring more investments in generation and increasing the cost of kWh at peak load). The energy performance of air conditioning appliances tends to be poor and not in compliance with prevailing standards, with an average age of around 10 years.

- Energy inefficient air conditioning appliances (noncomplying with Minimum Energy Performance Standards MEPS) need to be replaced by efficient appliances in order to reduce electricity consumption. Scrapping programs for old air conditioning appliances include disassembling and recycling the scrap metals.

- The accompanied report about the subject has been published in the final report entitled “Energy Efficiency for Appliances with a Focus on Air-conditioning “which was produced with the financial support of the European Union.
