COOL ME - Scaling up sustainable COOLing in the Middle East

As of: June 2021

MENA countries face a number of challenges in the face of visible climate change impacts due to increasing urbanization and strained energy infrastructure. In the region, cooling is a major source of energy consumption. It is expected that this will continue to increase. The project aims to accelerate technological change to reduce cooling demand and the implementation of the Kigali Amendment and the Paris Agreement in partner countries. The approach is based on four pillars: reducing cooling demand; supporting the phase-out of hydrofluorocarbons; replacing and disposing of inefficient cooling equipment and refrigerants; efficient operation of cooling equipment; and training and awareness-raising. The approach is complemented by establishing industry partnerships and building capacity among regional stakeholders. Demonstration projects will be used to disseminate knowledge.
