Climate zone mapping for air conditioners and heat pump devices.

This project is intended to develop a map and representative climate data for the potential introduction of climate-specific energy efficiency ratings labels for a range of heating and cooling appliances.

It will initially focus on air-cooled air conditioners, including reverse cycle air conditioners, sold throughout Australia and New Zealand.
