The website of the Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) Initiative

SEAD recently finalized a report which identifies potential Room AC efficiency improvements and their incremental costs, as well as global and country-specific estimates of total energy savings potential. The analysis shows that even the best currently available technology offers large efficiency improvement opportunities, with a 35% to 50% reduction in energy consumption from the market average, in most SEAD countries. The report provides insights for policies and programs that can be used to accelerate the adoption of efficient technologies to further capture global energy saving potential.
