Especially in developing countries and emerging economies, the demand for cooling is rising. Due to its considerable share in emissions, the refrigeration and air conditioning sector is playing an increasingly important role not only in ozone protection, but also in the areas of climate and energy policy. The question is how all three together can use the RAC sector’s savings potential to achieve current national and international climate and development targets. This virtual side event provided an overview of possible fields of action.

We explain how to identify the origin of emissions and considerable savings potentials of the RAC sector in your country and learn about appropriate cooling strategies. Get insights in particularly effective instruments such as the use of natural refrigerants, the training of qualified RAC technicians and the integration of appropriate technologies such as R290 split ACs.
