About the event
Like most countries in Southeast Asia, Vietnam aims to reach net-zero GHG emissions by 2050, and the country has announced ambitious targets to double clean energy capacity by 31-38 GW, leading to a 15-20% Renewable Energy share of the country's total energy supply. Today, Vietnam's population is 97 million, and its economy grew by 8% in 2022. At the same time, despite its tropical climate, only 7% of the households use ACs which is significantly lower than neighbouring countries like Thailand (35%) and Malaysia (80%). This number will likely rapidly increase due to Vietnam's economic growth and high urbanization rate.
Today, space cooling stands for 10% of the world's GHG emissions, and with increased temperatures due to global warming and increased population and economic growth in the hottest part of the world, the cooling demand is expected to triple by 2050 leading to equivalent increased energy demand in no action is taken. Cooling is sometimes called the elephant in the waiting room, referring to its importance in the energy transition and meeting climate targets. This is applicable both globally and in Vietnam.
This workshop aims to present, share, and discuss how to meet the future cooling demand in Vietnam with sustainable cooling solutions and explore how sustainable cooling is one tool in the toolbox to reach the country's climate targets. Session topics include District Cooling, Cooling as a Service, Energy Efficiency, Energy Recovery, Industrial Cooling, and more.
