Reducing Real-World Fuel Consumption With Efficient Air Conditioning Systems

{data-social}

The objective of an advanced engineering project by Mahle Behr and Behr-Hella Thermocontrol (BHTC) called Cool Efficiency was to significantly reduce the additional fuel consumption caused by vehicle air conditioning systems. This was achieved by design improvements and precise matching of all air conditioning components, including system control. As a result, the additional fuel consumption caused by the air conditioning system was reduced by 40 % in a test vehicle.
