02 jun A life-cycle cost analysis (LCCA) for setting energy-efficiency standards in Brazil: The case of residential refrigerators
Artigo apresentado na conferência da ACEEE em 2003. Traz ganhos de consumo entre 70 e 80 TWh para o período de 2005-2020 dependendo do cenário utilizado para os padrões mandatórios de eficiência energética de refrigeradores domésticos.
This paper presents the impacts of introducing cost-effective improvements in domestic refrigerators that were determined by means of a LCCA analysis. The analytical approach and computer simulation tool used in the study are the ones employed for the US DOE as well as the European Commission. The results were used to estimate the impacts of efficiency standards on new refrigerators up to year 2020 assuming two hypothetical cases.
