Internal DOE Report
The Western Cooling Efficiency Center (WCEC) has developed a set of criteria for test conditions, minimum energy, and water use performance for prototype cooling equipment. The WCEC has identified these conditions as indicative of western state climates. These criteria, named the Western Cooling Challenge (WCC), have been set forth as a challenge to manufacturers to improve the state-of-the-art space cooling products. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is to verify these criteria through laboratory testing at its heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) test facility in Golden, Colorado, which is uniquely suited to accurately measure the cooling performance, energy, and water use of advanced cooling systems.
