Building on India Cooling Action Plan 2023 | Thermal Control Magazine | HVAC Forum

Encouraged by overwhelming response and demand, we at TCBU feel pleased to continue the India Cooling Action Plan discussions in the coming month. This interactive session on “Building on India Cooling Action Plan 2023” is to review the performance and effective measures required for 2023 by industry leaders.

India is the first country to develop a cooling action plan based on energy efficiency and thermal comfort. ICAP has placed India on the international radar and garnered interest in supporting global momentum for creating National Cooling Action Plans. ICAP is aimed to see the impact across residential and commercial buildings, cold-chain, refrigeration, transport and industries sectors. Towards promoting passive cooling in buildings, the Bureau of Energy Efficiency has brought out the ECBC code for all commercial buildings and Eco-Niwas Samhita (ECBC-R) for residential buildings.

On this note, Thermal Control Business Update hosted an interactive session on “Building on India Cooling Action Plan 2023” on 8th February 2023 where industry experts discussed on sustainable cooling, low GWP refrigerant, PCM usage for specific cooling, RAC service technicians skilling, and reducing cooling energy aligned with the economy’s growth. The experts also discussed about advancing cooling technologies, ECBC, and smart cooling plans.
