Award Winning Technologies for 2018:

Room Air Conditioners with Efficient Variable Output (EVO)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is pleased to announce that Room Air Conditioners with EVO have been chosen as the 2018 ENERGY STAR Emerging Technology Award category.  The Award recognizes products that are able to vary the speed of the internal compressor motor in order to continuously control the temperature. As a result, the capability for efficient variable output allows a room air conditioner to more quietly regulate the temperature and save a significant amount of energy during operation.

Solid-State Refrigeration

The Award beginning in 2017 and continuing through 2018 recognizes the best available solid-state refrigeration products that help reduce the use of refrigerants and generate additional energy savings.

Innovative Refrigerant Systems

EPA is maintaining a list of innovative refrigerant systems that meet the 2016 Award criteria through 2018. For more information, visit the Innovative Refrigerant Systems web page.
