Decision XXXIII/5: Continued provision of information on energy‑efficient and low-global-warming-potential technologies

Recalling decisions XXVIII/2, XXVIII/3, XXIX/10, XXX/5 and XXXI/7 relating to energy efficiency and the phase-down of hydrofluorocarbons,

Taking note of the reports of the Technology and Economic Assessment Panel in response to decisions XXVIII/3, XXIX/10, XXX/5 and XXXI/7, inter alia, covering issues related to energy efficiency while phasing down hydrofluorocarbons and the cost and availability of low‑global‑warming‑potential technologies and equipment that maintain or enhance energy efficiency,

To request the Technology and Economic Assessment Panel to prepare a report on energy‑efficient and lower‑global‑warming‑potential technologies and on measures to enhance and maintain energy efficiency during hydrofluorocarbon transition in equipment for consideration by the Open‑ended Working Group at its forty-fourth meeting, and in the report to:

  1. Update information in the decision XXXI/7 report where relevant, and address additional subsectors not previously covered such as the heat-pump, large commercial refrigeration and larger air-conditioning system subsectors;
  2. Assess potential cost savings associated with adoption of lower‑global‑warming‑potential energy‑efficient technologies in each sector, including for manufacturers and consumers;
  3. Identify sectors where actions could be taken in the short term to adopt energy‑efficient technologies while phasing down hydrofluorocarbons;
  4. Identify options to enhance and maintain energy efficiency in equipment through deploying best practices during installation, servicing, maintenance, refurbishment or repair;
  5. Provide detailed information on how the benefits of integrating energy efficiency enhancements with the hydrofluorocarbon phase-down measures can be assessed.
