Mark Jaffe of The Colorado Sun reports on the impact that heat and humidity have on air conditioning.
- Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory have discovered that humidity, not heat, is what is primarily causing air conditioners to consume so much energy.
- Finding ways to make air conditioning more efficient will be especially important as heat waves and higher temperatures become more frequent.
- Companies like Baco Rotan-based Blue Frontier are creating innovative air conditioners that are more energy efficient and eco-friendly.
- Lowering the carbon footprint of cooling will be solved through private sector innovation.
