What We've Accomplished: NASRC 2018 Annual Report

The NASRC is excited to share our 2018 Annual Report, which highlights some of the incredible progress we made with our members and partners.

2018 was our biggest and most rewarding year yet. We saw enormous growth in membership, which led to even more growth in impact. Together, we made great strides towards achieving our mission of overcoming the barriers preventing the widespread use of natural refrigerants. 

We hope you'll take the opportunity to explore and share our Annual Report, available here. This year, we look forward to building on the momentum we've created together to drive even more impactful results. 

Making Progress: NASRC Progress Group Highlights

With the help of our members and partners, NASRC progress groups are actively addressing the hurdles that are slowing the progress of natural refrigerants. Each NASRC progress group is committed to taking action on a specific hurdle.

Recent Activities

Codes and Standards 

  • Recently, we had the opportunity to provide feedback on IIAR's low-charge ammonia guidance (ARM-LC) and give comment on a draft of the IIAR CO2 Safety Standard. Thank you to our members for your contributions.
  • We are calling for the supermarket industry to voice their support for faster action on codes and standards. Take action to support low-GWP refrigerants by signing the NASRC petition. Remember you can sign both as an individual and on behalf of an organization, forward it on to others!

Utilities and Energy Efficiency

  • The group has been exploring options to develop a broadly-accepted modeling tool to accurately estimate and validate the energy savings of any refrigeration system, include those using natural refrigerants. 
  • Join our next meeting to hear from guest presenters including the DOE Better Buildings Alliance this month and the American Carbon Registry in May!
