environmentally superior air conditioning technologies. Business case: Program participants help promote next-generation mobile air conditioning systems
that are better for the environment while satisfying customer safety, cost, and reliability
concerns. Program participants also partner in developing cost-effective designs and
improved service procedures to minimize refrigerant emissions. Services: Partnership, cooperation on research, and development and testing of next-generation
mobile air conditioning systems; technical assistance. Value to environment: Four measures proposed by the partnership (increased cooling efficiency, minimizing
refrigerant leakage, alternative cooling strategies, and end-of-life servicing) can reduce the
fuel used by vehicle air conditioners by 30 percent and cut refrigerant emissions in half.
Combined, these measures could save 2.1 billion gallons of gasoline each year and reduce
overall GHG emissions by 9 million metric tons of carbon equivalent. Sectors most applicable: Vehicle fleet owners/shippers; vehicle manufacturing Business Guide to
