The main goal of the project (2014-2017) is to promote natural refrigerants such as hydrocarbons and ammonia in the cooling sector, in support of the international commitment made by Israel to the Montreal Protocol. The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) is the implementing partner of the project, facilitating the transfer of best practice examples between Bavaria and Israel.
Selected Israeli experts participated in a two-week Cool Training Course in Maintal, Germany in March 2017, where they learned how a shift to climate-friendly cooling appliances is viable both from an economic and technical perspective. Moreover, two technical workshops will be organized with the MoEP in Israel for local RAC experts. By training local technicians and political stakeholders, the project supports Israel in promoting green technologies.
