The Cold Economy and Cryogenic Energy Storage

Demand for cooling in all its forms is booming worldwide - especially in developing countries. According to one projection, by the end of this century global demand for air conditioning alone could consume the equivalent to half of the electricity generated worldwide today.

This paper considers the role of cooling within the energy debate and how a fully integrated cold economy could work. As well as potential business opportunities for the RACHP sector.
