Award Winning Technologies for 2020:
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is pleased to announce the selection of Refrigerators with Advanced Adaptive Compressors as a 2020 ENERGY STAR Emerging Technology Award category. EPA is proposing performance criteria for these products with the goal of recognizing the best available advanced adaptive compressors that help protect the environment while offering the consumer new ways to save energy. An advanced adaptive compressor system in residential refrigeration products pairs an inverter compressor with a sensor-driven control system capable of cooling capacity modulation in response to a varying internal thermal load. As a result, the advanced adaptive compressor system allows for the refrigerator to save a significant amount of energy while regulating the temperature by minimizing wide temperature variations.
