Community ‘cooling hubs’ that would address a range of needs, such as protecting food supplies, students and medicines from high temperatures, are to be trialled in India as part of a collaboration with clean cold academics.
Researchers from the University of Birmingham have commenced a partnership with India-based Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation focused on introducing more sustainable cooling to protect foodstocks in Haryana and Punjab.
The Toshiba Carrier partnership has unveiled an Indian air conditioning joint venture intended to localise its market strategies and product development for commercial VRF products in the country.
A proposed ‘cold as a service’ approach to providing less carbon intensive cooling functions on a per use basis has been put forward as an example of radical business models that experts argue are needed in a drive for more sustainable refrigeration and food supply.
More must be done to bridge the isolated use of clean cold and cold chain networks moving forward to ensure a more sustainable approach to cooling in food distribution, academics have argued.
