The Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Technology Institute (ARTI) is accepting bids for a new research project to establish a standardized methodology to calculate the Life Cycle Climate Performance (LCCP) for HVAC/R.

LCCP is a concept that identifies all the global warming impacts of a product throughout its lifetime, including the direct effect of refrigerants and blowing agent emissions from the product and the indirect effect of carbon dioxide emissions related to the energy consumption of the product.

The research is a multi-phased project. The initial phase will focus on developing the methodology and demonstrating LCCP calculations for residential heat pumps. The outcome of this research will be a simulation tool that can perform calculations to compare LCCP for alternative types of equipment and refrigerant choices in various geographical regions.

The results of this effort will likely give policymakers and HVAC/R OEMs a standardized method to evaluate environmental impact of the products.

Proposals are due by Apr. 26, 2010. Prospective bidders can download bidding instructions, the statement of work, and other pertinent information at http://www.ahrinet.org/Content/ProjectsOpenforBid_860.aspx
