Global Cooling Prize:

Rising incomes, urbanization, and a warming planet are going to drive unprecedented growth in demand for comfort cooling from 1.2 billion room air conditioners (RACs) today, to over 4.5 billion by 2050. If we fail to innovate today, this growth in cooling demand will significantly exacerbate our climate crisis, while also placing a massive burden on the electricity grids and the consumers. Under a business-as-usual scenario, RACs alone could add about 132 GT of CO2-equivalent (CO2e) emissions cumulatively between now and 2050, resulting in over 0.5°C of global warming by the year 2100, leaving millions of people exposed to potentially dangerous heat conditions without an affordable and sustainable cooling solution.
