Promoting the Adoption of Green Cooling Technologies and Practices : Insights from Industrial and Commercial End Users (English)

This paper will focus on commercial and industrial end-users of cooling and proposes solutions to barriers to sustainable cooling that apply generally across sectors. It should be noted that cooling is an area of rapid technological development and that many of the potential solutions presented in this paper do not apply to all geographies and applications. The common barriers and associated solutions that are addressed in this paper are as follows: uncertainty in quantifying the cost to business of heat stress, lack of awareness in the relevant time horizon for calculating ROI, lack of training in how to structure tender documents and requests for proposals, improperly sized equipment, poor maintenance of equipment and systems, and misalignment in employee performance incentives. Lastly, the paper addresses regulatory policies that may help drive business decisions towards sustainable cooling solutions.
