This NAMA aims at a broader sector transformation to low GWP refrigerants and energy efficient equipment in the commercial refrigeration sector.
Activities: (2010 - 2016)
In the commercial refrigeration sector, high emission can be reduced at low costs with available technology. The emission reduction potential is given by reducing both direct (from refrigerants) and indirect emissions (from energy consumption). After the Amendment to the Montreal Protocol in Kigali 10/2016, developing countries including Mexico have committed to freeze their HFC production and use by 2024, and to reduce it in subsequent steps.
In addition to the involvement of manufacturers, the NAMA is intended to cooperate with the retailing association ANTAD (Asociación Nacional de Tiendas de Autoservicio y Departamentales) on specific actions addressing commercial RAC.
- A project has been conducted to create a detailed HFC inventory in the refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) sectors in Mexico. The inventory enabled the integration of NAMAs in the RAC sector in the Special Climate Change Program PECC (2014-2018).
- A further mission for the design of a NAMA in the commercial refrigeration in Mexico took place in February 2016. International RAC experts visited and assessed some retail stores. The aim is to determine the emission reduction potentials and costs savings for the retail companies interested in converting their systems to natural refrigerants.
- A RAC technology workshop took place with stakeholders from the subsector in order to explain the different options for technology conversion with natural refrigerants.
- In February 2016, a technology workshop with focus on natural refrigerants took place.
These activities were funded by BMUB and implemented through the GIZ, for the amount of 2.5 million euros.
