LG Electronics received the Gold Edison Award, the highest honor in the Energy & Sustainability category. The Edison Awards are among the most prestigious accolades honoring the excellence in new product and service development, marketing, design and innovation. LG was awarded top honors in the Award’s Smart Climate Control subcategory for its Wi-Fi-enabled smart room air conditioners with dual-inverter linear compressors in recognition of their cutting-edge innovation, performance and efficiency. LG’s variable-speed compressor technology also was honored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency with 2018 and 2019 Energy Star Emerging Technology Awards, which recognize new and promising technologies that deliver significant energy savings during operation. While conventional air conditioners work by cycling on and off completely, LG smart air conditioners with Dual Inverter Compressor technology continually adjust compressor speed to achieve the desired room temperature with ease. “That means – the company explains – less fluctuation and depending on the model, 15, 25 or 40 percent more energy efficiency than the minimum Energy Star certification requirement, helping consumers save on energy bills and reducing CO2 emissions”.
