Evaporative Cooling Market Evaluation

Project Number PGE 0510 Organization PG&E End-use HVAC Sector Commercial Project Year(s) 2005 - 2006

Project Summary:

The largest energy and demand savings opportunities in residential and light commercial sectors are in cooling (47% of all peak demand savings opportunities). The use of air conditioning continues to grow in California due to increases in income, and in inland regions such as CEC Climate Zones 11, 12, and 13 where evaporative cooling could save significant energy and demand. Improving California\'s energy efficiency will depend on increasing market penetration of new and existing cooling technologies. This strategy requires both the evaluation of new emerging evaporative cooling technologies (that are higher in efficiency and address concerns with humidity, mold, and water consumption) as well as developing more effective market delivery channels for these technologies. This project will investigate cost-effective ways to increase market penetration of evaporative cooling.  For more information, please contact the sponsoring organization.
