India Cooling Action Plan : Operationalizing Space Cooling Recommendations
The Ozone Cell of the Ministry of Environment, Forest, and Climate Change, Government of India proactively led the development of the India Cooling Action Plan (ICAP) 2019 – an essential macro-level policy tool to manage India’s cooling growth while neutralizing the potential harmful impacts and securing critical socio-economic benefits for the population. ICAP is the first of-its-kind initiative of its scale in the cooling sector to be taken by any country in the world that exemplifies integrated policymaking and underscores the urgency of proactively and collaboratively addressing its cooling growth.
This document digs deeper into ICAP’s recommendations and explores the next steps, i.e., operationalising the given cooling recommendations, to address the challenge of India’s growing cooling demands. AEEE also got the opportunity to work on this initiative.
