In one of its four focus areas, the Green Chiller (GC) NAMA project aims to implement up to ten forward-looking and exemplary reduction measures – sometimes in the context of technology cooperation schemes - to promote the introduction of preferably halogen-free, more efficient cooling technology systems in industry and commerce.
Therefore the Green Chiller projects seeks to establish partnerships with interested industrial or commercial actors in Indonesia with the mutual goal to fostering technology innovation in the area of energy-efficient and environmentally-firendly refrigeration and air-Conditioning and thereby contributing to sustainable economic development in Indonesia.
Priority will be given to energy-efficient green cooling technologies, e.g. using natural refrigerants or the conversion of ventilation systems such as from constant to variable air volume (VAV). These reduction measures shall demonstrate feasibility and cost-effectiveness and shall support the up-scaling of the NAMA.
Scope and selection criteria
Plant operators and manufacturers motivated to get involved with green cooling technologies are eligible partners for pilot projects. Hereby, companies who focus on refrigerant charges, leakage detection and energy consumption have an advantage in the selection process. Moreover, the pilot projects aim at supporting the development of efficiency parameters to estimate direct emissions (through leakages of refrigerants with high GWP), indirect emissions (through the electricity supply’s carbon intensity) and the resulting reduction potential of cooling technologies.Only newly planned facilities in the industrial or commercial sector are qualified to become project partner.
The following activities are foreseen within a Green Cooling partnership:
- Systematic inventory and analysis of weaknesses of technologies and applications with energy consumption, efficiency parameters, direct and indirect emissions and assessment of reduction potential
- Adaptation of innovative green cooling technologies to the local conditions (e.g. high ambient temperatures)
- Joint elaboration of technology scenarios for the increased use of energy-efficient, climate-friendly alternatives in selected, typical applications
- Installation of exemplary cooling technology, followed by a monitoring (12 months) and documentation in order to derive recommendations on policy approaches, programmes and incentive systems within the NAMA. The demonstration projects also serve to train energy auditors, planners and technicians.
- Capacity building within the supply chain for green cooling equipment
- Capacity building of the installation, servicing and maintenance technicians.
The Green Chiller NAMA project aims to contribute to the incremental costs which occur if choosing a more energy-efficient and halogen-free cooling applications. These can be parts of (modular) cooling systems. These parts would be partially imported from European technology providers through an international tender.
Next to the incremental costs for the applications, the project will provide trainings on operation, maintenance and monitoring of the cooling systems.
The project obtains a network with manufacturers of energy-efficient and halogen-free cooling supply systems which can be tapped by the project partner.
