India Cooling Coalition
India Cooling Coalition (ICC) is a multi-stakeholder group engaged extensively in sustainable cooling research and application. The platform aims to strategically mitigate the developmental challenges in line with various national and international commitments like India Cooling Action Plan (ICAP), the Kigali Amendment, Paris Agreement, and Sustainable Development Goals.
SHEETAL is a consortium of CSOs led by TERI and partners AEEE, CEEW, supported by Children Investment Fund Foundation, to facilitate the implementation of India Cooling Action Plan (ICAP) recommendations.
As a part of the consortium, AEEE is the leading organisation for the Work Theme 2: Sectoral Actions and Work Theme 3: Enabling Actions.
The Work Theme 2 spans across the sectoral sub-themes on:
- Space Cooling – implementing space cooling policies, programmes and regulations
This work theme encompasses activities related to Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) and Standards & Labelling (S&L) program, residential building code adoption and implementation, not-in-kind or non-refrigerant based climate-friendly cooling solutions and cold-chain.
The Work Theme 3: Enabling Actions spans across the cross-cutting work theme on Behavioural Change.
Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy (AEEE), in partnership with Symphony Ltd., initiated the first-of-its-kind pilot “SAHARA programme”, a programme for Supporting Affordable Heat Action for Resilient Academic Institutions in India. The programme aims to mainstream super-energy efficient, affordable and sustainable space cooling solutions in India’s academic Institutions to bring in systemic changes and ensure Thermal Comfort for a Billion Lives (TCBL). This programme will also draw support from AEEE’s ongoing project SHEETAL.
Scaling-up Investment in Clean and Efficient Cold-chain in India
United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), in partnership with Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy (AEEE) and Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), is implementing the project ‘Scaling-up Investment in Clean and Efficient Cold-chain in India’ funded by the Clean Cooling Collaborative. The focus of the cold-chain support programme is to work with the state government and key cold-chain stakeholders to accelerate sustainable, market-linked and integrated agricultural cold-chain development.
