Energy Efficiency of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Systems

The Federal Government has published the revised and extended Guideline for the promotion of Refrigeration and air conditioning systems with non-halogenated refrigerants in stationary and vehicle applications within the framework of the National Climate Protection Initiative (Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Directive).
Companies of the VDMA working group "Energy-efficient Refrigeration Technology" present solutions for energy-efficient components and systems.
Energy-efficient refrigeration technology pays off, both for the environment and for the operation of the refrigeration system. Here you will find information on how to plan, design and operate your refrigeration system energy efficiently.
Taking into account the "Regulation (EU) 2015/1095", the VDMA Standard Sheet 24247-2 has been revised and will be published in the new version October 2018.
VDMA 24247-5 "Energy Efficiency of Refrigeration Systems, Part 5: Industrial Refrigeration" provides planners and operators with information on how and by what means the energy efficiency of refrigeration systems and cooling processes in industry can be optimised and how the operator can exert influence by complying with maintenance requirements.
The VDMA Specification 24247-6 supports manufacturers in the planning and energy-efficient operation of air-conditioning systems and processes.
Challenging targets in the expansion of renewable energies can only be achieved if electricity consumption in particular is reduced. Improving energy efficiency is a key element of this.
VDMA 24247-1 "Contribution of refrigerating and air conditioning systems to climate protection – Improvement of energy efficiency – Reducing greenhouse-related emissions”. The VDMA Specification describes measures to achieve the energy savings potential up to 40%.
VDMA 24019:2015-01 “Heat recovery from refrigeration plants” supports the introduction into a systematic evaluation of refrigeration plants with heat recovery
The VDMA Specification 24248:2014-05 “Energy efficiency of electrically-powered heat pumps - Coefficients of energy efficiency and their definition” covers the basics of assessing the energy efficiency of an electrically powered heat pump. The requirements are intended for individually-planned, electrically powered heat pumps for commercial and industrial use.
