Air Conditioning Consumes One Third of Peak Electric Consumption in the Summer

Air conditioning in homes may account for up to one third of electricity use during periods in the summer when the most energy is required in large cities, according to a study carried out by Carlos III University of Madrid (UC3M) and the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (Spanish National Research Council — CSIC). The research attempts to determine not only the amount of energy that is consumed, but also its environmental impact.
