Abstract

Chillers consume a major share of total air conditioning energy use in
commercial and industrial buildings for space conditioning to get
thermal comfort for a country. Experiences from other countries show
that government intervention in the form of regulations such as
mandatory and voluntary approaches can save huge amount of energy along
with the reduction of emissions associated with energy have been
quantified and presented. Emission reductions associated with the energy
savings has been estimated and presented as well. Study also estimated
the amount of avoided emissions along with the cost of avoided carbon.
From the data analysis, it has been observed that energy efficient
chillers can save huge amount of energy and utility bills. Based on
review of international test standards, it has been found that
ARI550/590 can be used for testing and rating of chillers energy
performance. However, energy guide label is not suitable for information
dissemination for chillers. Study estimated that 1688 MWh of energy and
US$108,040 bill can be saved for using energy efficient chillers.
