Organizer: The Energy and Resources Institute
Organizers: UNDP, Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP)
Description: Many countries are embarking on the development of National
Cooling Plans that aim to increase energy efficiency while reducing the
consumption of F-gases.
These plans can provide a long-term perspective for
policies that can simultaneously address national cooling demands and the need
to mitigate climate change. Cooling Plans can cover multiple sectors, including
space cooling in buildings, manufacturing of cooling equipment, cold-chain
logistics, and servicing sector.
The side event, co-hosted by UNDP and the
Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP), will provide perspectives from
leading countries on their experience developing and publishing pioneering
National Cooling Plans. The side event will also discuss the financial options
to implement cooling efficiency.
