New Delhi: As part of ‘Energy Conservation Week’, being celebrated from 9th to 14th December, Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), a statuary body under the Ministry of Power, will conduct an International Workshop on ‘Energy Efficient Cooling’ at Scope Convention Centre, New Delhi from 12 to 13 December. The two-day international workshop is organised in association with the International Energy Agency (IEA) under the Super-Efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) initiative of Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM).
Commenting on the development and implementation of the cooling sector policies and programmes, Sanjiv Sahai, Secretary, Ministry of Power, Govt of India, said, “The rising demand for space cooling in buildings, vehicles and cold chain sector is a challenge to be addressed. There is a need to have effective policies and schemes in this sector for deployment of new efficient technologies. BEE has been implementing initiatives towards promoting Energy Efficient Cooling and has conducted several studies for developing policy framework in new sectors like Cold Chain.”
The workshop will serve as a platform for global experts, industries, and policymakers to explore opportunities to accelerate deployment of on energy-efficient cooling, across different sectors and establishments.
The objective of the workshop is to chart out steps towards accelerating the development and deployment of efficient cooling appliances, equipment and systems. It will help in exploring policies, technologies, innovation, new approaches and business models across space cooling and cold chains.
The event highlights action plans, international best policy practices, measures to stimulate innovation and deliberations on steps forward. These initiatives and knowledge sharing sessions help in framing best policies and support industry bodies to adopt technologies from across the globe.
The workshop will be attended by various delegates involving regulatory bodies, policymakers, Government officials and PSUs from across the world. Different sessions will be attended by officials and experts from different international bodies related to Energy Efficient Cooling.
The discussions will act as a platform for the stakeholders to adopt new technologies and policy frameworks for an energy-efficient cooling environment.
An exhibition showcasing new and innovative technologies in Energy Efficient Cooling sector will be held. The objective of such initiatives is to reduce energy intensity in the country by optimizing energy demand and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) which are responsible for global warming and climate change.
India has committed to reduce 33-35% of GHG emission by 2030 as part of a document submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
