Acredita-se que integrantes da mesa já tenham sido apresentados pelos moderadores, cabendo então uma brevíssima saudação à platéia e a afirmação da satisfação em estar neste Fórum, representando a Indústria Mundial de Refrigeração Doméstica, como CEO da Embraco (e ex-CTO), esperando poder transmitir informações que contribuam não só para este painel, como para todo o Fórum.
Ernesto Heinzelmann, Embraco: Embraco’s Contributions to Energy Efficiency
“ Embraco’s contributions to energy efficiency” Ernesto Heinzelmann Sep, 2008 International Policy Leaders Dialogue, Washington D.C.
Energy consumption is a global concern... Ambitious global goals have been set Sources: Council of the Federation (Canada); CNIS (China); European Energy Commission; American Council For a Energy Efficient Economy; Ministry of National Infrastructures (Israel) To reduce energy consumption by 20% until 2020 To save 177 billion KWh (3,4%) per year in 2030 To reduce energy consumption by 20% until 2020 To reduce energy consumption by 20% between 2006 and 2010 To raise energy efficiency in 20% until 2020
...and the refrigeration segment plays a key role in this scenario Refrigeration accounts for 15% of the global electricity consumption
Energy efficiency in Household Refrigeration <ul><li>Combined efforts of refrigerators and compressors manufacturers have reduced energy consumption 5 times in the last 30 years </li></ul>Refrigeration system Compressor Crossover Technologies Cooling Components Cooling Mechanisms Cooling Cycles Source: Embraco 5x less energy consumption in the last 30 years
Energy consumption reduction The outcome of 100 million new systems per year in the world 2 years US$ 26 bi 2.5 years 155 million tons Household refrigerators’ consumption in the U.S. End user savings Largest worldwide Hydroelectric power production Reduction of CO 2 emission Source: Refrigeration system consumption: 2,900 KWh per year - internal analysis based on DOE 2006 data
