|Title:||Projected electricity savings from implementing minimum energy efficiency standard for household refrigerators in Malaysia||Authors:||Mahlia, T.M.I.
|Issue Date:||2003||Abstract:||The Malaysian economy has grown rapidly in the last two decades. This growth has increased the ownership of household electrical appliances, especially refrigerator-freezers. Almost every house in Malaysia owns a refrigerator-freezer. The Malaysia Energy Center considered implementing a minimum energy efficiency standard for household refrigerator-freezers sometime in the coming year. This paper attempts to predict the amount of energy savings in the residential sector by implementing a minimum energy efficiency standard for household refrigerator-freezers. The calculations are based on the growth of refrigerator-freezer ownership data in Malaysian households. By implementing the programs in 2004, about 8722 GWh will be saved in the year 2013. Therefore, efficiency improvement of this appliance will provide a significant impact in future electricity consumption in Malaysia. © 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd.||URI:||http://dspace.uniten.edu.my/jspui/handle/123456789/6280|
