Cool Up

The Cool Up programme is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMUV) supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag.

Upscaling Sustainable Cooling

Since 2020, ILK Dresden has been part of the Cool Up project. The programme, supports Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkiye in the uptake of sustainable cooling technologies and the use of natural refrigerants. Through this accelerated technological shift, Cool Up aims to reduce cooling demand and enable the early implementation of the Paris Agreement and the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, thus stimulating both the global climate and ozone agendas in the MENA region. With our technical expertise from research and practical experience at ILK Dresden, we support, among other things, the identification of viable technical solutions and the planning of demonstration projects on-site.

Interested? Below, you can find more information on how to stay updated.

In the last years, Cool Up hosted multiple thematic group meetings with stakeholders and helped to implement National Cooling Action Plans.

The cool up team was present at several events like for example the last COP28. To learn more about natural refrigerants or the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, check out Cool Up’s Knowledge Sharing Sessions on our YouTube channel.
