Energy-efficient and climate-friendly air conditioners = Equipos de aire acondicionado amigables con el ambiente y energéticamente eficientes.
The model regulation guidelines supplement the United for Efficiency (U4E) Air Conditioner Policy Guide, “Accelerating the Global Adoption of Energy-Efficient and Climate-Friendly Air Conditioners.” It is voluntary guidance for governments in developing and emerging economies that are considering a regulatory or legislative framework that requires new room air conditioners to be energy-efficient and to use refrigerants with a lower global warming potential (GWP) than typical legacy refrigerants, and to ban the importation of used products. It covers products commonly used in residential and light commercial applications. This general guidance is intended as a starting point to inform regulatory considerations rather than a final template to adopt. Regulatory processes should be undertaken transparently and with sufficient time to address local circumstances (e.g. availability and prices of products, income levels, utility tariffs, etc.). It is typically led by an energy ministry with the support of a national standards body and conducted in consultation with many experts from the public and private sectors, and civil society.
