GLRPPR Sector Resource: The Road to Zero: DOE's Next-Generation Heating and Cooling R&D Strategy

Title:
The Road to Zero: DOE's Next-Generation Heating and Cooling R&D Strategy

Abstract:
The U.S. Department of Energy's Building Technologies Office (BTO) is supporting the Administration's efforts to phase down the use and emissions of highly potent greenhouse gases known as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). BTO has created a multi-pronged strategy, outlined on this page, to develop, demonstrate, and deploy low- to zero- global warming potential (GWP) HVAC, water heating, and refrigeration technologies. This strategy supports the United States' amendment to the Montreal Protocol to phase down the production and consumption of HFCs globally. BTO's vision is that non-vapor compression systems -- a revolutionary new class of technologies that don't use refrigerants and can approach zero-GWP -- become dominant in some end uses.
