Driving a sustainable future in space cooling
The need for long-term, passive and nature-based solutions to avoid furthering the increase in CO2-emitting energy consumption is urgent.
Climate change has been a part of our lives for several years now. Each year is getting hotter and hotter, creating discomfort in our living spaces and exacerbating the Urban Heat Island phenomenon – occurs when cities replace natural land cover with dense concentrations of pavement, buildings, and other surfaces that absorb and retain heat.
Space cooling demand has tripled since 1990, affecting our domestic energy consumption significantly. According to a report from the IEA, 2021 was registered as one of the seven warmest years ever recorded; as a consequence, cooling accounted for 16% of buildings’ final electricity consumption.
