Project Summary

This project aims to build the capacity to implement high efficient refrigerator /freezer technologies and policies in developing APEC economies, meeting APEC energy intensity reduction goals, and the directives in 2014 Ministerial Meeting to “enhance cooperation among member economies, get a deeper understanding of their R&D needs, build information platforms, develop Asia-Pacific intellectual networks, share R&D results and strengthen practical project cooperation”. This work will establish a technical experts group to review and investigate the energy efficiency promotion for refrigerator/freezer and to manifest the causal effect of policy guidance on energy saving performance. This project will also initiate the experience sharing platform of domestic refrigerator/freezer design for energy issue to improve the information exchange mechanism and technical training among APEC region. Through holding the workshops to disseminate study results and collect available opinions, this project is expected to create a roadmap to enhance efficiency management in the future.

Relevance

Among all the home appliances, the refrigerators are those consume the most energy in the world accounting for around 30% of the total energy consumption. Within APEC region, electricity consumption in US accounts for 13% of the whole domestic use, 17% for Japan, 20% for Thailand, 40% for China, and 22% in Chinese Taipei.

The annual production of refrigerators in 2015 was about 150 million units with a rapid growth trend, and around 1.5 billion units are in use worldwide. The energy consumed by refrigerators is rapidly growing, especially in developing APEC economies, which has a great impact to APEC energy intensity reduction goals if no active assistance for efficient promotion of refrigerators is provided. Although the refrigerator standard harmonization with IEC 62552 has been carrying out for trade liberalization, energy efficiency (EE) is still not guaranteed under mass production for the economic reason.

Many APEC economies, Including US, Japan, China, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Chinese Taipei and so on, have succeeded in boosting the overall energy efficiency of refrigerators through technology development and EE management system, as well as appropriate subsidies. However, some developing economies such as the ASEAN economies and Central and South America regions are still on trial. They not only need to build an integral EE management system, but also have to strengthen the refrigerator industry technical capacity to achieve the overall market efficiency improvement. Through sharing successful experience regarding the enhancement of the refrigerator efficiency technology and EE management system to developing economies, APEC region is expected to accelerate the refrigerator efficiency promotion.

The project aims to build the capacity to widespread high efficient refrigerator technologies and EE management experience, meeting APEC energy intensity reduction goals, and the directives in 2014 Ministerial Meeting in Beijing to “enhance cooperation among member economies, get a deeper understanding of their R&D needs, build information platforms, develop Asia-Pacific intellectual networks, share R&D results and strengthen practical project cooperation”. This project also fits the Rank 2 in the funding criteria for all APEC‐funded projects in 2017 with strengthening quality growth in EE promotion that directly supports the APEC Strategy. Based on the above goals, this project works on experience review and information exchange for EE management to speed up the development, promotion, and application of energy saving technologies for refrigerators.

Objectives

The purpose of this project is to pave the way for accelerating the establishment of cooperative mechanism for high efficient refrigerator/freezer design and the corresponding policy implementation. The objectives of the project are listed below:

Objective 1: To evaluate energy efficiency management system and policy of refrigerators and provide policy suggestions for economies in APEC region.

Objective 2: To evaluate the available energy saving technology related to refrigerator under EE regulation

Objective 3: To select best practical case for studying the method for improving market share of high efficiency refrigerators

Objective 4: To establish a refrigerator energy saving knowledge sharing platform and to integrate refrigerator network of EGEE&C to provide energy saving design information

Objective 5: To spread project experience, sharing the best practice and collect comments within APEC region.

Alignment

According to the statements for 2014 APEC Ministerial Meeting, APEC leaders reiterated the importance of improving energy efficiency, helping member economies to enhance capacity building, making energy efficiency policies more scientific and practical, and speeding up the development, promotion and application of energy efficiency technologies and products. This project proceeds with aspiring to reduce APEC’s aggregate energy intensity by 45 percent by 2035. This project will address the APEC leaders’ priority of ensuring sustainable investment and development of new technology by promoting energy efficiency and lowering GHG emissions. The EWG 2014 Strategic Plan outlines objectives to build the capacity of APEC Member Economies aimed at 1) Strengthening regional and domestic energy security and resilience across the region; 2) Lowering the carbon intensity of energy supply and use; 3) Promoting the diversification of fuels and sources; and 4) Training a gender-inclusive energy workforce.

This project will focus in all of the above  issues  by 1) increasing energy security through enhancing energy efficiency by implementation of refrigerator design information network; 2) establishing experience exchange of best design practices and cooperation mechanism among APEC economies to promote high efficient products to support APEC’s goal to reduce energy intensity; and 3) Disseminating information with gender-inclusive training to improve human capacity to implement high efficient programs for refrigerator products.

TILF/ASF Justification

Various stakeholders in APEC economies will be involved in this project, including policy-makers, EE management organizations, and refrigerator manufacturers. The project will investigate APEC EE benchmarks and market information in the developing economies, and then hold a working meeting, invite representatives of these developing economies to attend to introduce the status of the economies on EE management and efficiency improvement for refrigerators to ensure that the project study results are in line with the needs of these economies. The implementation of this project will disseminate the specific research outcomes by organizing seminars in the APEC region and establish refrigerator energy-saving knowledge sharing platform to meet the needs of the developing economy inquiries with relevant energy-saving knowledge provided by global refrigerator experts.

3 meetings of the project management, 1 day, 10 participants each will be held additionally. The 1st meeting will be hosted as Technical Expert Group Meeting before Output 2 to consult the outcomes of previous survey study and the case studies of the project. The 2nd and 3rd meetings will be held at the second days of workshops to review the implementation of the project. 

Outcomes: The progress towards meeting the objectives of this project will be evaluated through the following indicators:

1)  This project will invite distribute questionnaire surveying the energy efficiency management and technology development issues of refrigerators to the members of developing economies seeking their participation of this project. The technical expert group meeting will help to collect the actual needs of developing economies and provide the latest energy-saving knowledge to them. Therefore, the policy makers of the developing economies are expected to enhance their domestic EE management programs accordingly.

2)  By holding the workshops, the economies with successful experience of refrigerator EE promotion can share their history and benefit of policy implementation process by presenting their result of case studies. This will expand the learning capacity for EE management and energy conservation application in APEC region.

3)  The case studies for policy implementation for EE promotion of refrigerators include the energy-saving technology development or introduction; the relevance of energy-saving technologies and EE benchmarks, the design of EE management program, market surveillance methods, laboratory test procedures and product verification, efficiency improvement, stakeholder’s meeting process and subsidies, etc. The research results are helpful to develop future energy efficiency management and benchmarking for developing economies.

4)  The refrigerator belongs to the white appliances, which are often paid attention by the female. This study promotes women's participation in energy-saving & carbon reduction issues. Therefore, the refrigerator could be designed more in line with the needs of the family.

5)  Following the evaluation results of the previous questionnaire survey, the project collects the information for the demands of energy saving technology and EE management affairs for refrigerator EE promotion, which is helpful to organize  more training courses for developing economies.

Beneficiaries: The direct project participants include policy makers, the refrigerator manufacturers in developing economies, the experts with refrigerator EE promotion experience of the technical working group in this project, and the refrigerator manufacturers with energy-saving technologies. Therefore, for the refrigerator manufacturers with technical leadership will have access to more trade opportunities, e.g. the introduction of high-efficiency goods or technology to developing economies. The technical specialists can enhance their own personal profile and extend career opportunities for international consultants. The joint developing economies can access to the EE promotion issues with direct and complete knowledge for the future works, including the EE technology information, the implemented EE management policies and practices, and experience for policy making. There is no gender restriction for the participants of this project. We will invite more than one fifth of women to participate in the experience sharing and invite them to advise on energy efficiency management for white goods. This project will bring together the refrigerator/freezer manufactures and government representatives to overcome the coming energy issues by sharing and learning up-to-date technology information in this cooperative relationship through workshops. This project will also promote the international expert participation to strengthen the facilitation of energy efficiency regulation, and to meet the APEC’s target to reduce aggregate energy intensity.

The project will invite the participants described previously to review the implementation of the direction of the work plan and to collect the demands for refrigerator EE improvement and management for the developing economies to make sure the outputs fit the requirement of the refrigerator EE promoting issue. The outputs of this project  provide the first hand study results to explore how and what to do in practice with higher efficient refrigerator benchmarking among APEC economies, which will expand its influences to policy makers and also manufacturers in the long term.

The implementation of the project will also effectively integrate the opinions of experts, including the field of energy-saving technology research topics, product testing standards and test facilities, EE management affairs, etc., through co-working and outcomes dissemination in the workshops in the APEC region. This project will combine the efforts of the technology expert group to build a knowledge network, which will assist the developing economies with relevant technologies or knowledge consulting to rapidly improve their refrigerator energy efficiency for trade liberalization and regional economic prosperity.

Dissemination

The studied outputs of this project will be widely disseminated in the APEC area in the format of organized seminars and will be available for free download on the APEC website in the end. Especially, the project will conduct the following outputs for dissemination:

1) Investigation report for the case studies of domestic refrigerators/freezers design and implementation under energy efficiency regulation

2) Final report for refrigerator/freezer energy efficiency improvement in APEC Region: review of experience and best practices

The record of the workshops, reports, and all related materials will be advised to be published on APEC, EWG, EGEE&C websites targeting at the stakeholders in all APEC economies.

Gender

The proposed project will pay attention to gender equality with the equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities of women, men, girls and boys. Since the main purpose of the project is to promote high efficiency refrigerators, reducing carbon dioxide emission, and protecting environment, we would encourage the participation of female experts and professions to provide their professional opinions and experience as we encourage the participation of male experts and professionals. It is expect that female experts and professionals will provide their observations of the features of a white appliance as well as the efficiency level with promotion of environmental protection concept. This project will also encourage the female joint the knowledge network to learn more about efficiency improvement for domestic refrigerators.

The ultimate target of this project is to promote the energy efficiency of refrigerators, reducing carbon emission, facilitating environmental protection, achieving social and economic sustainable development. This project will be dedicated to create more equal employment opportunities for females by enhancing  women participation in the process of project development, increasing female social identity awareness, achieving the female self-development in technology and environmental protection.

Due to the existing limitation of the environment of the engineering society, we could guarantee female participation of the workshop speakers and attendants to be more than one fifth of total participating number of them. With regard to the female participation rate of the personnel executing this project, we guarantee it to be  above 45% of total personnel. Although female rarely attend the technical developing and testing jobs of refrigerator products, the female usually play an important role in the commoditized process of refrigerator EE promotion for they  provide innovative comments for the customers’ use, i.e. exterior design, physical sizes, ergonomic consideration for location of door knobs, etc. In the process of refrigerator EE improvement, we look forward to a more diverse design concept, so that the future designs of refrigerators to meet the needs of more housewives.

Work Plan

In the past decade, the energy efficiency of refrigerators in many economies has enhanced much more, including MEPS, mandatory benchmarking of EE labelling scheme, and voluntary EE standard. This  project will conduct an investigation and an analysis for all these information as the baseline for this project. At the same time, the market survey and benchmarking study will be also carried out for energy-saving key technology and product functional features to understand the refrigerator market profile, which assist the EE promotion for the APEC developing economies in the near future.

This project will collect the EE management and technical needs of the participating developing economies by questionnaire survey, energy-saving technology seminar and technical expert group meeting. Afterward, the 1st workshop will be organized to invite the APEC economies and manufacturers with sufficient EE promotion experience to meet the actual needs for developing economies to promote efficiency.

Based on the results of the previous study, the proposed project will invite partners from the economies with EE promotion experience to jointly study the methodology of efficiency improvement, including technology development, energy efficiency management and other incentives to explore the mechanism of improving the efficiency of marketing refrigerators. This project will also provide consultation and choose one case in the end for the implementation of EE improvement of refrigerator/freezer following the successful studied methodologies and outcomes. The design and manufacturing expenditure for the improvement will be self-funded by the manufacturer. All these studied efforts and energy conservation knowledge will be presented in the 2nd workshop and compiled in the final report.

Completion of the project

The preparatory work plan is listed below:

1)  Seeking the sub-contractor with experience of upgrading the efficiency of refrigerators and energy efficiency management implementation in the past.

2)  Seeking the manufacturers who can share the practical experience for efficiency enhancement of refrigerators.

3)  Seeking for the economies that can share the promotion experience of the refrigerator EE strategy.

4)  Seeking for the developing economies willing to provide their demands for energy efficiency in the refrigerator and to participate in the project.

5) Technical review of energy efficiency promotion and survey for development of EE management for refrigerators in APEC area.

Risks

The project disseminates EE management knowledge mainly through workshops and seminars, thus one possible risk could be identifying of actual needs of technical and EE management measures in such a short time. Moreover, the mechanism of successful EE management experiences would possibly be complicated, which cannot be fully understood during the period of workshops and seminars. This problem could be solved by offering additional training courses to those economies that need assistance.

Monitoring and Evaluation

The first objective of this project is to investigate current situation of refrigerator EE management systems and energy-saving technologies in the APEC region with surveys through the Internet, technical reports, literature review, and questionnaires. For technology survey, the project will provide information regarding state-of-the-art refrigerator energy saving technologies and their application to products under EE standard measures. After surveying study, the project will host an energy-saving technology seminar for refrigerator/freezer just one day before the working group meeting to help the participants catch the newest information from the invited experts. All questionnaires and interviews will be conducted in the working group meetings, which collect implementation status of refrigerator EE management programs in the APEC region and receive feedback from the stakeholders.

During the investigation stage, the project will analyze the current situation of the refrigerator EE management among APEC region with monitoring numbers of APEC economies that have strengthened the benchmark for domestic refrigerators. For the investigation of the current situation, at least 10 questionnaires for different economies will be collected and reviewed. The results of questionnaires and the conclusion derived from the first technical expert group meeting will be written in detailed in the investigation report which can then be utilized as a  tool for future domestic refrigerators/freezers design and EE regulation. The investigation report will be presented in the workshops. Furthermore, numbers of participants, corresponding APEC economies, job attributes and gender will be evaluated for progress and impact assessment. In order to search out the methodology of refrigerator EE promotion, the project will invite at least 3 economies to involve the case studies, with EE promotion experience, including technology development, energy efficiency management and other incentives to explore the mechanism of improving the efficiency of marketing refrigerators. We expect that about 50% of responses are expected to be from developing economies during the project implementation.

With peer reviews and feedback from the working group meetings and workshops, the quality of investigation report for the case studies can be improved. Next, the best case study will conduct the methodology and implementation measures for energy saving application on high efficiency refrigerators in the market.

Linkages

Engagement: The project will engage the EWG and EGEEC for review, inputs and recommendations. All the outputs will be circulated among members of these groups and they will be invited to attend the consultation workshops and the international conference. The project overseer will regularly update on progress and outputs. EGEE&C members will be invited as the speakers or participants in the workshop to provide insight from their work.

For EE related issues, the project will apply the outcomes done by the other APEC EWG projects relating to refrigerator topics, such as EE benchmark and refrigerator test standard harmonization in APEC region. This will make full use of and promote the APEC project research results. For the refrigerator energy saving technology review work, the project will focus on the international research and development trend surveying from open literature and technical reports by famous international institutes.

Several APEC projects have previously ever focused on the similar topics including: 1) APEC Cooperative Energy Efficiency Design for Sustainability (CEEDS) phase 2(EWG 1/2010); 2) National Lighting Design Centers (EWG 14/2012A); 3) Distributions Transformers (EWG 15/ 2012A); 4) Harmonisation of Energy Efficiency Test Methods of Refrigerators (EWG 04/2014A). The first project focused on building energy codes and energy labeling for construction materials and whole buildings, including complete energy management information of appliances in APEC region. Using the studied outcomes of the projects for Lighting Design Centers aimed to understand how to effectively translate lighting design research into practice based on input from regional experts and stakeholders. The similar contribution was by the Distributions Transformers project, which provided an appropriate tool to drive improvements in DTs’ design towards higher energy efficiency based on the new IEC standard. These two projects were implemented for product EE improvement based on specified energy regulations or standards. The last project focused on EE testing harmonisation of refrigerators with the IEC 62552 standard, and supported the development of an effective management and inspection environment in APEC. Applying the results of refrigerator harmonisation project, this proposed project can conduct the investigation and best practice for refrigerator EE promotion based on the IEC 62552 standard.

Sustainability

1) The full report of this project will be published in the website of APEC, EGEEC and Energy Conservation Label in Chinese Taipei.

2)  Whoever has questions about the project, the team of the project will solve the questions to continuously contribute to related technical knowledge and EE management among APEC economics. The project outputs and planned follow-up study will be given to project partners and stakeholders for their further EE promotion works. The developing economies will be the most possible beneficiary for their own systems through the methodology and the best case study. After the project is finished, the potential industry or policy maker that need deeper or on-site consultants, the execution team of the project will provide the needed service with reasonable charges to ensure the sustainability.

3)  If there is available financial support, the EE promotion related training for the other appliances will be conducted in all possible APEC economies area.

4)  The project outcome will involve some practical issues for refrigerator products including design, test & inspecting, refrigerant control measure, etc. from the input of worldwide manufacturers or experts. We expect that the outcome is able to influence the IEC standards, not restricted to performance standard IEC 62552.

5)  As there are many projects on refrigerator topics proceeding in these years including harmonization and EE promotion, the corresponding technology or experience will be sufficient for the coming EE regulation. The other similar energy consumed product, commercial refrigeration system will be also able to follow up by the project implementation experience, if EWG incorporates more workplan on refrigeration topic in future years.

6) As described previously, the energy consumed by refrigerators is rapidly growing, especially in developing APEC economies. We expect that the participants will share information with policy makers and also with the local dealers or manufacturers. All the outcome and technical information of this project will help the developing economies to review the possibility of promoting refrigerator energy efficiency.
