The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment of the UAE, the EU-GCC Clean Energy Technology Network and the University of Birmingham have organised a two-day workshop to develop new ideas and methods to address the cooling challenges of the Gulf region.

Effective cooling is essential to preserve and transport food and medicine; it underpins economic growth and makes our homes and offices bearable. And it is key to keeping our data world running.

But unmanaged growth in cooling represents one of the largest threats to climate goals, natural resources and energy resilience. With cooling energy demand forecast to triple by 2030, the Gulf urgently needs to find ways to reconcile its fast-growing cooling energy demand and its environmental goals.

Organised with in-country partners from the UAE, the GCC and the EU, the workshop aims to better understand the opportunities linked to integrated, low-carbon, low emissions cooling systems and how to accelerate their deployment.

Findings and recommendations will help shape thinking in-country, as well as feeding into the first ever International Clean Cooling Congress to be held at the University of Birmingham on 18 and 19 April.
