Energy Efficient Cooling

As of: September 2021

The building cooling sector in India mainly uses decentralised individual systems that have high levels of energy consumption and use climate-damaging refrigerants. The government, working together with industry, civil society institutions and research institutes, has therefore drawn up an India Cooling Action Plan (ICAP) aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Implementation of the ICAP will require conversion to more energy-efficient central systems that use natural refrigerants. A strategic roadmap for the further dissemination of these technologies will be drawn up during the first phase of the project. Business models and framework conditions for their implementation will also be developed in parallel procedures. The second project phase helps the project partners with their applications for international funding. Thanks to the massive potential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the country, the project will contribute much to the achievement of India’s NDCs – and its integrative approach can be transferred to many countries and regions.
