Cost-Benefit Analysis for Air Conditioner in Tunisia
This is the second report from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) in support of developing a minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) program for ACs in Tunisia. This report builds upon a market and regulatory assessment that characterized Tunisia’s market and regulations for ACs (LBNL 2022). The current report is organized in the style of the technical support documents (TSDs) produced for U.S. appliance efficiency standards and comprises the following: a description of our analytical framework (Section 1) followed by several analyses of the context for and impacts of adopting a MEPS for ACs in Tunisia: an energy-use analysis (Section 2), engineering analysis (Section 3), life-cycle cost (LCC) analysis (Section 4), and national impact analysis (Section 5). The report concludes with policy recommendations (Section 6).
