In our last few blogposts we discussed the history of air conditioning systems and how and how progress had been relatively slow up until the invention of electricity. Even 65 years after this incredible invention 90% of homes were still without air conditioning systems. Now that 87% of all homes have air conditioning systems, we need to find new technologies to reduce costs and reduce or eliminate the use of chemicals that have a detrimental effect globally to our environment.
Energy Department Invests in Development of Next-Generation HVAC Systems for Buildings
The Energy Department is spending tens of millions of dollars to advance research and development of next-generation heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) technologies, attempting to save money by saving energy, and phasing down the use of chemicals that have a devastating effect on the global climate.
With air conditioning using large and growing amounts of energy in the U.S. and worldwide, innovative solutions would potentially offer significant energy and cost savings in new and existing buildings.
Currently, HVAC systems are the largest energy end-use in buildings, using nearly 30% of all energy used in U.S. commercial and residential buildings. Non-vapor-compression HVAC systems have the potential to use as much as 40% less energy than our current systems.
The Department of Energy are funding programs that fall into a few basic categories: advanced vapor compression technology and non-vapor compression technology.
