Researchers at Work on New Refrigerator

Researchers at Work on New Refrigerator

The Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Whirlpool are at work on a more efficient refrigerator that could reduce average energy use by as much as 40 percent, a report published at R&D said. The lab said that researchers are banking on an oil-free "Wisemotion" linear compressor manufactured by Embraco along with other technologies and materials to bring down energy consumption to less than 1 kilowatt hour per day. By comparison, refrigerators manufactured during the 1970s used between 4 and 5 kWh per day, and today's models average about 1.5 kWh per day. With electricity at an average cost of about 12.5 cents per kWh in the U.S., that would save a family about $26 a year, not a huge sum. But collectively, the energy savings are very large. “If every refrigerator in the U.S. were replaced with the advanced refrigerator design, the projected primary energy savings would be 0.56...
