Opportunity: Improvements in the efficiency of refrigeration systems with the use of natural refrigerants

Several government agencies and R&D companies are focused on improving the coefficient of performance, efficiency, lifetime, and total ownership cost of commercial refrigeration systems. With the Kyoto Protocol and the recent EU F-Gas regulations, manufacturers are trying to develop natural refrigerant technologies that can boost the energy efficiency of commercial refrigeration systems. Companies such as Carnot Refrigeration, Danfoss, and Carrier Commercial Refrigeration are introducing ammonia and CO2 refrigerant technologies. Earlier, cascade refrigeration systems using CO2 and ammonia as refrigerants were confined to limited refrigeration applications. However, with the increasing awareness regarding eco-friendly refrigerants, cascade refrigeration systems are preferred for a wide range of refrigeration applications. The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) defined in article 12 of the Kyoto Protocol encourages the use of natural refrigerants. The CDM allows a country with an emission-reduction commitment under the Kyoto Protocol to implement an emission-reduction project. Such projects can earn saleable Certified Emission Reduction (CER) credits, each equivalent to one ton of CO2, which can be counted toward meeting the Kyoto targets. These projects include the installation of energy-efficient equipment in industries.

The supermarkets & hypermarkets segment is estimated to be the largest segment of the commercial refrigeration equipment market, based on application, in 2021.

In terms of application, the supermarkets & hypermarkets segment is estimated to be the largest segment of the commercial refrigeration equipment market in 2021.
