Cooling is central to health, prosperity and recreation, however most cooling is currently energy intensive and uses highly polluting F-gases. As urbanisation continues to boom, as the planet warms and as incomes rise, the demand for cooling is booming. Agreements in the international landscape (notably the Montreal Protocol and the Paris treaties and the Sustainable Development Goals) are important in understanding this under-represented aspect of the developing climate crisis.

Dan Hamza-Goodacre, Executive Director of the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program will speak to the evolving international landscape. He will be joined by Professor Toby Peters, University of Birmingham who will talk about cooling technology trends and the need to think thermally. Daniel Magallon, Managing Director of BASE Energy Switzerland will also join the discussion to share insights into ‘Cooling as a Service’ – a circular economy, servitization approach to meeting cooling needs.

This webinar will be of interest to sustainability professionals, especially those looking to manage energy costs and emissions, and those responsible for buildings and transport. The webinar will be suitable for all experience levels across disciplines.

The webinar will be suitable for all experience levels across disciplines. Join the discussion to hear how to stay cool without warming the planet.
