Side Event 1: Les­sons lear­ned and bright pro­spects: Green Coo­ling pro­jects in La­tin Ame­ri­ca, the Ca­rib­be­an and Af­ri­ca

14 July 2021, 5:00-6:00 pm UTC | 7:00-8:00 pm CEST/UTC+2 (German time) | 8:00-9:00 pm (Nairobi time) 

Ozone and climate protection is not just a European challenge but a global challenge. However, the European Union is considered a pioneer in F-gas regulation. In order to pass on this early experience, the EU, together with BMZ, supports countries in Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa in reaching their targets of ODS phase-out and early actions on HFCs.

Get insights in the ROCA project in Africa and the SPODS project in Latin America and the Caribbean and learn more about the European Green Cooling approach!

Side Event 2: Left out in the cold – the Green Coo­ling po­ten­ti­al of the glo­bal win­dow ty­pe air con­di­tio­ner mar­ket

16 July 2021,  10:00-11:00 am UTC | 12:00 am - 1:00 pm CEST/UTC+2 (German time) | 1:00 – 2:00 pm (Nairobi time) | 5:00-6:00 pm (Bangkok time)

Window-type ACs account for about 13 million sales annually. Most of these sold units are featured with a low energy performance and highly climate-damaging HCFC-22 and HFC-410A. However, their compactness, small refrigerant charge and simple installation perfectly qualify them for HC-290, holding large efficiency and climate benefits on scale. In this side event we will zoom into most dominant regional markets, unfold the GHG mitigation potential that would result from a timely transition to HC-290, and discuss design and safety aspects of R290 window-type ACs.

Join us and learn more about the Green Cooling potential of window type ACs!
