The Global Cooling Innovation Summit was held in New Delhi. It was inaugurated by Union Science & Technology Minister, Dr. Harsh Vardhan. The two-day event was scheduled to be held from 12th November to 13th November 2018.
The Global Cooling Innovation Summit is a first-of-its-kind solutions-focused event which was conducted with an aim to address the climate threat that comes from the growing demand from room air conditioners.
The Global Cooling Innovation Summit event is jointly organized by Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, Rocky Mountain Institute, Alliance for An Energy-Efficient Economy (AEEE), Conservation X Labs and CEPT University.
The Global Cooling Innovation Summit event also launched the Global Cooling Prize-Mission Innovation challenge that will promote the development of a residential cooling solution that has at least five times (5x) less climate impact than today’s standard.
Findings: A winning technology could prevent up to 100 gigatons (GT) of CO2-equivalent emissions by 2050, and put the world on a pathway to mitigate up to 0.5˚C of warming by 2100.
