Energy efficiency in HFC-free supermarket refrigeration

The global phase-down of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), starting in January 2019 under the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, could avoid 0.5°C of warming by 2100. By simultaneously improving the energy efficiency of cooling systems, this climate benefit could potentially be doubled

Chilling Facts VII

The seventh Chilling Facts report, 22 retailers submitted data covering the 2015 calendar year from supermarkets across 37 countries. Our findings show that the uptake of hydrofluorocarbon-free technology is well under way across the EU, with CO2 transcritical systems spreading eastward and southward throughout Europe

Chilling Facts VI

In this report, we reveal that the take-up of climate-friendly refrigeration by supermarket chains is spreading faster and more widely than ever. We are concerned that major retailers are missing an easy climate win and the chance to significantly lower their energy bills, by not fitting doors on refrigeration units

Putting the Freeze on HFCs

Global digest of available climate-friendly refrigeration and air-conditioning technologies, presenting case studies from around the world of commercially available and proven technologies free from hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) for domestic, commercial, industrial and transport refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment

Time to Commit on HFCs

A briefing to the Consumer Goods Forum Global Summit 2014 in Paris. We stress the importance of CGF members publicly reaffirming their commitment to begin phasing out global-warming refrigerants and to announce the steps they intend to take towards this objective
