Green Cooling Initiative / Reducing environmental and climate impact from cooling systems

Kenya

Titre Green Cooling Initiative / Reducing environmental and climate impact from cooling systems

Pays : Kenya

Durée : 2018 to 2021

Commissioned by : Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU)

Agence d’exécution : Ministry of Environment and Forestry

Objectifs  : The RAC&F sector increasingly uses green cooling technologies. GHG emissions of cooling systems are reduced.

Approche
The Green Cooling Initiative (GCI) builds on an international network of countries, institutions and private sector stakeholders to achieve a GHG mitigation and a reduction of energy consumption. The main partners in accelerating the transformation towards sustainable green cooling technologies are the Seychelles, Ghana and Kenya.

GCI combines the following approaches :
* Promoting natural refrigerants and energy efficiency
* Establishing advanced training institutions and certification schemes
* Encouraging public and private climate finance for leverage

In Kenya, the GCI aims at integrating the immense mitigation potential of the RAC&F sector into the global climate and energy discussion, thereby initiating technology and policy transformation. The project develops the country specific sector strategies including GHG inventories, mitigation scenarios, technical roadmaps and policy recommendations fostering green cooling technologies and showcasing its impact in pilot projects.

Furthermore, the project conducts analyses of the RAC servicing sector and training institutions supporting the development and implementation of technician trainings and certification schemes. Additionally, GCI conducts finance sector analyses and supports Kenya in obtaining funds from international climate finance mechanisms to implement green cooling projects.

Finally, GCI continues to expand its Green Cooling Network providing cooperation between all RAC&F sector stakeholders worldwide and spreading advanced and manifold information concerning green cooling technologies.
