The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) will release guidelines to improve energy efficiency (EE) for domestic and commercial refrigeration at a webinar based on a study of Guatemala, Ecuador, Uganda, Lebanon and Morocco.

The “Understanding Net Benefits and Cost for Different Energy Efficient Refrigeration Design Options” webinar is hosted by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the International Copper Association (ICA), and will take place on July 22, Wednesday 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm CET.

The webinar will present the outcomes of the “Assessment of incremental capital and operating costs for improved energy efficiency (EE) in domestic, commercial and retail refrigeration,” a project funded by the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP).

The assessment will offer a methodology and tools for manufacturers to understand cost and net benefits for energy-efficient refrigeration design options and the required manufacturing line upgrades, according to the ASHRAE website.

Many countries lack guidelines when trying to meet climate goals, and the document will introduce “practical ways to calculate and cost the changes needed for their product and factory footprint to comply with both international agreements and national legislation,” according to Fukuya Iino, Industrial Development Officer at UNIDO.
