The project will promote the widespread commercialization of energy-efficient refrigerators by removing technical, market, commercial, information and other barriers to increased market penetration of the technologies and products. The activities developed for the project can be generally grouped into those providing a “technology push” to increase the supply of energy efficient refrigerators, and those providing “demand pull” to raise retailer and consumer understanding of the benefits of energy efficient refrigerators in China.
