3rd Annual Refrigerant Week, September 16-20
Cooling is energy-intensive, currently accounting for 20% of global electricity consumption, representing 8% of Green House Gas (GHG) emissions. And if we don’t act, the IEA is projecting that space cooling alone with almost double GHG emissions to 15% by 2050.
However, cooling should not be a luxury and is the solutions to many challenges. Cooling solutions make indoor environments comfortable, drive our economies, and keeping food and medicines safe. Food wastage alone is responsible for 8% of GHG emissions and cooling technology can reduce food losses by up 20%.
What is Refrigerant Week? Once per year, we host an event dedicated to sharing information and resources that aid in the transition to new refrigerants.
