Disease Resilient and Energy-Efficient Centralized Air-Conditioning Systems
How can innovative technologies be utilized to achieve disease-resilient and energy-efficient centralized air-conditioning systems in public buildings
Inefficient centralized air-conditioning (CAC) systems in many Asian and Pacific countries account for up to 50% of energy consumption in public buildings. These systems rely heavily on hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), a greenhouse gas potentially thousands of times more potent than carbon dioxide.
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is promoting disease resilient clean energy development in developing member countries (DMCs) of ADB. Through support from the High-Level Technology Fund (HLTF) and the Clean Energy Fund (CEF) under the Clean Energy Financing Partnership Facility (CEFPF), ADB aims to test and demonstrate innovative solutions that will improve energy efficiency, mitigate the risks of virus transmission, and ensure safe working conditions in public buildings by deploying efficient, clean, and smart CAC systems.
Can you help ADB find and implement these solutions?
How can innovative technologies be utilized to develop disease resilient and energy-efficient centralized air-conditioning systems in public buildings?
This international challenge aims to encourage submitters to ‘think global’ with their solutions with the objective of pilot testing and scaling your solution in 3 public buildings in one of ADB's developing member countries (DMCs) in Asia and the Pacific.
IMPORTANT: You must co-finance at least 10% of the total cost of the project from your own resources, which may include funding provided by other organizations.
