On September 23, a round table was held as part of the Presentation of Results for the demo project that Daikin and National Institute of Electricity and Clean Energies (INEEL) have developed. For this project, Daikin’s new Ururu Sarara inverter mini-split with refrigerant R32 was used, and was compared with a conventional non-inverter R22 system of the same capacity that represents the characteristics of the mini-split systems sold in more than 70% of the market in Mexico. This project, developed within the framework of the Montreal Protocol agreements, has as the main goal a reduction in the use of hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs).
The Presentation of Results was attended by government officials, academics, and specialists who shared through presentations and discussions, the actions in which they are working for the environment. During the description of the project results, Francisco Chavolla, director of the Daikin Training Center for Latin America, said that the measurement of energy consumption by INEEL ended last August and demonstrated that the inverter system presents more than 66% of savings in electricity consumption compared with a conventional system.
