PROJECT OBJECTIVE

The Efficient and Clean Cooling program incorporates energy efficiency (active and passive solutions), adopts renewable energy solutions, and supports the transition to more climate-friendly refrigerants (aligned with the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol). It works across multiple sectors such as health, agriculture (horticulture, dairy, fisheries), buildings, and urban spaces in developing countries, mainly focusing on space cooling (energy-efficient buildings and air conditioning), refrigeration, and cold chains, and the mitigation of urban heat island effects.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

ESMAP and World Bank Climate launched a new program to accelerate the uptake of sustainable cooling solutions, including air conditioning, refrigeration and cold chain in developing countries. The program will provide technical assistance to ensure that efficient cooling is included in new World Bank Group investment projects and mobilize further financing.

The program will help countries develop the necessary market infrastructure, financing mechanisms, and policies and regulations to deploy sustainable cooling at scale, focusing on air conditioning, refrigeration and cold chain, cool surfaces such as reflective roofs, walls and pavements, and mitigation of urban heat island effects. Another area of focus will be working with public and private sector partners to raise awareness around efficient, clean cooling opportunities in emerging markets.
