From September 25th to 29th about 40 participants from 17 different countries met at the Green Cooling Week 2017 in Berlin organised by the Green Cooling Initiative (GCI) in order to find out about the latest environmentally friendly cooling technologies and to jointly develop new ways of using, disseminating and promoting sustainable Green Cooling worldwide.
The basis for the week was the visit of the ATMOsphere Europe 2017, where participants had the opportunity to get exposure to current trends in mass-market solutions using natural refrigerants. At the same time, the accompanying, innovative Design Thinking Workshop explored new ways to promote alternative, sustainable cooling technologies in developing countries. Besides numerous opportunities for networking with selected green technology producers, a final field visit then provided insights into the current state-of-the-art green cooling technology.
The GCI is a global project funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) by the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) and implemented by GIZ Proklima. Since 2008, Proklima has been working successfully to disseminate ozone-and climate-friendly technologies.
