Danfoss joins UN initiative to help develop Cooling for All
September 24, 2017 - Sustainable Energy for All announced a new global Cooling for All panel during the UN General Assembly and Climate Week NYC. Danfoss has been appointed a member of the new panel, which will work to increase access to affordable and sustainable cooling solutions throughout the world.
The UN Economic Commission for Europe has estimated that, by 2050, the world’s population will reach about 9 billion, 70% of whom will live in cities, resulting in a demand for cooling devices like air-conditioners and refrigerators, and a corresponding surge in energy demand.
Currently, A/C and refrigeration cause 10% of global CO2 emissions, says Danfoss, which is 3X the total emissions attributed to aviation and shipping, and yet an estimated 1 billion people lack access to cooling.
To spur action and leadership in increasing access to affordable and sustainable cooling solutions, Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) has launched a Cooling for All initiative and Global Panel to drive it. Danfoss will be represented by Jürgen Fischer (photo), president of Danfoss Cooling.
The Cooling for All panel will develop a report outlining recommendations for the acceleration of uptake of solutions that create sustainable cooling access around the world. The report is expected in 2018.
