Technical solutions for sustainable cooling and refrigeration already exist, but the majority of technologies are in the early stages of market maturity. Cool Up builds awareness about the benefits and potentials of sustainable cooling and refrigeration technologies by sharing implementation-based knowledge.
Cool up defines sustainable cooling as affordable and safe cooling that satisfies the user needs with the lowest possible impacts on the environment. Specifically, our scope covers solutions that does not use environmentally harmful refrigerants (like fluorinated gases), have very low energy demand, and are ready for a fully renewable energy supply. The Cool Up programme focuses on enabling a cooling market transformation towards such sustainable cooling technologies.
Cool Up technology actions
Cool Up focuses on building awareness and trust by developing country-specific technology catalogues and deploying demonstration projects to showcase the economic, social, and environmental benefits of sustainable cooling.
