Significant Reductions in Electricity Consumption
The technology uses low amounts of electricity for the control panel and the external cooling circuit
Utilization of Waste Heat
Enersion cooling is powered by low grade heat which consists of industrial waste heat, solar heat and heat from cogeneration units.
No Harmful Refrigerant
This technology uses plain and harmless water as a refrigerant instead of harmful synthetic refrigerants like CFCs, HCFCs and HFCs which to contribute to global warming.
A Change Needed
The polluting and energy exhausting current cooling technology has recognized by Richard Branson as the technology which is ‘ripe for change’. Along with the Government of India, he has realized that with growing populations and increasing affordability in developing countries, the demand for air conditioning will rise and with the current technology, it will significantly influence global warming and electricity consumption. They have together initiated a competition called the Global Cooling Prize to find the next best cooling technology.
“Air-conditioning seemed to play a pivotal role, since with hotter weather, we would be relying even more on air-conditioning, which, through increased refrigerant use, would accelerate warming, creating even greater demand for air conditioning.”
