The cooling challenge
As global temperatures rise, demand for cooling — primarily air conditioning and refrigeration — is expected to triple by 2050. Unfortunately, today’s cooling technologies consume massive amounts of energy and release super-polluting greenhouse gases, damaging our climate.
At present, cooling produces more than 7% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, and these emissions are expected to roughly double by 2050.
Extreme heat and lack of access to cooling also threaten the health and safety of people, as well as the quality and safety of food and critical medicines that rely on cooling.
