International Green Cooling Summit
The GIZ and the German Environment Agency (UBA) on behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMU) are holding the international Green Cooling Summit which addresses the question of how to implement the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol. The main issue will be the replacement of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) especially in the air conditioning and refrigeration sector.
By 2047, developed and developing countries have to reduce their HFC consumption stepwise by 80% according to the Kigali Amendment. From all fields of HFC application, the refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) sector is the most affected one. The three-day event will highlight political approaches to implementation by individual countries and the availability of energy-efficient technologies with climate-friendly natural refrigerants in the RAC sector. Besides technical experts, the Green Cooling Summit addresses authorities and enterprises which are end-users of refrigeration and air conditioning technology. In addition, the programme offers interesting contributions for researchers.
The event is organised by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the German Environment Agency (UBA) on behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conversation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
Participation is free of charge.
