EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW), an initiative of the European Commission, showcases activities dedicated to energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions. Recognising the importance of cooling and its environmental impact, the EUSEW organisers will be hosting a workshop titled ‘Cleaner Cooling – Sustainably meeting the rapid growth in transport and urban cooling demand’. E4tech Director Adam Chase will be presenting on 18th June on the topic of a systems approach to cooling – the ‘cold economy’.
Modern life relies on cooling to ensure safe supply of food and medicine, as well as being vital for data centres and the built environment. However, as economics and demographics shift, demand for these energy intensive services is growing. If the rising demand for urban and transport cooling is met with ‘business-as-usual’ diesel technologies, which are disproportionately polluting, the environmental consequences will be severe. A cold economy approach could alleviate this problem.
