Giving inefficient refrigeration the cold shoulder

ECO ENERGY - The story of making aircon units and fridges better for the environment.

The problem

Most air conditioners and refrigerators use the compression cooling circle. The basic thermodynamic principle lies in deflation of gases and liquids so that when a gas or liquid deflates it extracts heat from its environment. Extracting equals cooling. So, it’s pretty obvious to state therefore, that when a gas or liquid deflates, it creates a cool environment. But air temperature control and refrigeration are two of the largest consumers of the world’s total energy usage. The refrigerating process simply uses huge amounts of energy. 

The solution

This ingenious company has created the cheapest, most reliable, flexible refrigeration and air conditioner systems. They have managed to make energy savings on conventional systems by as much as 70%. Wow.
