Dear Green Cooling community,

As 2022 draws to a close, we wish you and your family the chance to recharge your batteries and enjoy some peace and relaxation this festive season.

To reflect on the past year, we have compiled a selection of our highlights, publications and event recordings 2022 as well as our latest news. We really enjoyed that we could meet many of you in person again and that we were able to invite technicians from all over the world to our Cool Training in Germany. At the same time, we continue using the advantages of digitalization: Our virtual Green Cooling Summit went into a successfull second round and we have launched a Cool Training online course.

Enjoy reading and have a wonderful break. Thank you for your valued cooperation and trust. We would especially like to express our gratitude to the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV), the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), and the European Union (EU), without whom our project work would not be possible.

Have a great start to the new year! We look forward to continuing our Green Cooling journey with you.

Stay healthy & stay cool,

Bernhard Siegele
Programme Manager GIZ Proklima

Cool Trainings

After a two years forced break, our well-established Cool Training could once again take place at Bundesfachschule Kälte-Klima-Technik (BFS) in Maintal, Germany. A few dozen cooling technicians and engineers from all over the world took part. "Cool Training teaches us how to protect the environment", said Amadou Traore from Mali. How? They learnt by theoretical lessons, practical exercises and excursions how to safely handle natural refrigerants. Find here some more impressions from the trainings in pictures and quotes.
