Cold is central to modern life. It is an essential component in solutions for tackling a number of the most significant challenges facing human society today and into the future. For example, how to feed a growing global population, how to enable more people to access essential healthcare, how to meet an explosive growth in the demand for digital data handling and improved building comfort. Yet the role that cooling plays in our current and, more importantly, future global energy systems is all too often overlooked. In this talk Dr Fox will describe why this must change. He will explain how the impact of increased urbanization, growing global affluence and climate change is predicted to lead to a boom in cooling demand in the next few decades. He will discuss the critical need to achieve sustainable energy provision for cooling to meet this demand and describe new ways of thinking about the energy system for cooling, including the emergence of the ‘cold economy’ concept and technologies that improve efficiency, reduce pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions, harness renewables and utilise sources of cold that are currently wasted.
