Within the HVAC industry, this can be seen in an increased interest in those technologies that provide improved part-load efficiency to ultimately deliver tangible energy savings.
Chiller efficiencies for air and water cooled chillers will be significantly increased in 2015. An addendum to ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2010, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, continues the energy efficiency improvements that were implemented in 2010. The efficiency requirements increase overall annual energy savings by 8.3 percent compared to 2010.
