whirlpool corp (WHR) Key Developments

Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Whirlpool Corporation Collaborate to Design Refrigerator

Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Whirlpool Corporation are collaborating to design a refrigerator that could cut energy use by up to 40% compared with current models. The goal of the cooperative research and development agreement, or CRADA, is to make a next-generation household refrigerator more energy efficient by using WISEMOTION, an innovative linear compressor manufactured by Embraco, and other novel technologies and materials. The team will redesign a refrigerator to incorporate a linear compressor, which reduces energy losses by continuously matching the compressor pumping rate to the refrigerators cooling requirements. Associated components will provide additional efficiency gains. Together, these features could cut refrigerator energy use by approximately 40%, which would translate into an estimated $26 savings per year on the average consumers electricity bill.
