The AHRI Public Sector Research Program is a jointly funded research program supporting the goals of the ARTI Research Roadmap:
The AHRTI Research Program is funded by contributions from:
Residential Buildings: Achieve a 50% reduction in HVAC&R annual energy consumption and peak electric energy demand in new residential buildings by 2020.
Commercial Buildings: Realize energy consumption and peak energy demand reductions of 25% in new buildings by 2020.
Refrigeration: Reduce refrigerant leakage in supermarket refrigeration systems by 90%, reduce refrigerant charge in supermarkets by 60% and reduce energy consumption in supermarkets by 25% by 2020.
Emerging Technologies: Continually review and monitor research in the HVAC&R arena and elsewhere for breakthroughs that could contribute to achieving the goals within the three application sectors.
Research project reports for all AHRI public sector research programs are available to the public.
