The 30th Montreal Protocol Concludes with Progress on Energy Efficiency
2017/12/25
Institute for Governance & Sustain-able Development (IGSD) reported that at the conclusion of the 30th anniversary, Meeting of the Parties (MOP) of the Montreal Protocol the Parties agreed to a robust three-year replenishment of US$ 540 million to fund the continuing phase out of hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), and to a separate decision to have the Technology & Economic Assessment Panel study how best to integrate energy efficiency with the hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) phasedown under the Kigali Amendment.
 
The energy efficiency decision was submitted by India, Bahrain, Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and the African Group. It recognizes the importance of maintaining and enhancing energy efficiency during the switch from high-global warming potential (GWP) HFCs to low-GWP alternatives in the refrigeration, air conditioning, and heat pump sectors. This has the potential to avoid significant CO2 emissions from the power plants that provide the electricity to run these products and equipment, estimated by Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory to equal the production from of up to nearly 1,600 medium-sized (500 MW) peak-load power plants by 2030, and up to 2,500 power plants by 2050.
