Title:A Report on Global Warming and Energy Consumption Trends of Major Appliances
Author(s):Newell, T.A.
Subject(s):appliance energy index
appliance global warming index
Abstract:Energy and global warming indices for ten major appliances have been examined. A two-page summary report for each appliance category has been written as well as a combined summary for major appliances. The appliances studied are: refrigerators, room air conditioners (RACs), freezers, gas ranges, electric ranges, microwave ovens, clothes washers, gas dryers, electric dryers, and dishwashers. This report contains copies of the summary reports, bibliographical data, assumptions, and data tables developed by this investigation. Computational spreadsheets have been developed that allows new data to be easily incorporated for future reports. In general terms, most major appliance categories have reduced energy requirements over the past two decades. At the same time, increased appliance production causes overall energy demand and global warming effects to remain relatively constant. "Direct" global warming effects decrease significantly after the year 2010 as appliances using chlorinated refrigerants (primarily R11 and R12) are scrapped.
