The Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) and the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating (AIRAH) invite you to attend the Global Cooling Prize (GCP) Workshop.

The GCP aims to provide cooling solutions that will enhance lives without contributing to runaway climate change. It is rallying a global coalition of leaders and innovators to solve the critical climate threat that comes from the growing demand of residential air conditioning.

Attend this essential workshop to find out more about the GCP and its objectives. You’ll also receive helpful tips to consider for your application and submission.

This session takes place one day after AIRAH’s Refrigeration 2019 Conference. For more information on Refrigeration 2019, including details of facilitator Iain Campbell’s keynote address, please click here.

About the Global Cooling Prize

The Global Cooling Prize is initiated by the Rocky Mountain Institute; the Government of India’s Department of Science and Technology; and Mission Innovation.

This ground-breaking competition is designed to incentivise the development of a residential cooling solution that will have at least five times lower climate impact than today's standard room air conditioner units. This technology could prevent up to 100 gigatonnes of CO2-equivalent emissions by the year 2050, and put the world on a pathway to mitigate up to 0.5°C of global warming by the year 2100, all while enhancing living standards for people in developing countries around the globe.
