Centre for Sustainable Cooling (CSC)
The Centre for Sustainable Cooling (CSC) brings together a consortium of international academic institutions to work with governments, industry, development agencies and NGOs to solve the cooling challenge: accelerated access to cooling for all who need it sustainably. Through this global collaborative coalition, the CSC will develop new systems approaches integrating technological, policy, social, economic, energy, finance and business pathways to better manage cooling demand and deliver sustainable solutions to help the most vulnerable in our society.Read more
Access to cooling is not a luxury. It is an issue of equity – essential to preserve fresh food and medicine, underpin economic productivity and provide protection from heat for populations in a warming world.
The world must not solve a social crisis by creating an environmental catastrophe; we need to ensure access to affordable cooling with minimum environmental impact and maximum efficient use of natural and waste resources.
Without radical intervention, if we are to deliver access to cooling for all who need it, we will potentially see four times as many appliances deployed using five times as much energy as today.
