HFC emissions have been decreasing since 2014 with expected emission savings of 71 Mt CO2-eq by 2030, in addition to the first F-Gas regulation. But HFCs are only one part of the puzzle
–> CO2 is the main contributor to the EU‘s total greenhouse gas emissions.
CO2 contributes 96% to the energy related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and 90% is from fuel combustion
With the current Ecodesign measures for room a/c, central cooling, commercial refrigeration and professional refrigeration, the annual emission savings in the year 2030 are expected to be 156 TWh Primary Energy. This equals to 9.8 million cars taken off the road for one year.
