Global temperatures are steadily increasing. Keeping cool is a growing need, and access to cooling is a critical issue in some of the warmest countries on the planet. With airconditioner ownership expected to soar, not only are markets not keeping up with energy efficiency potential, but energy policy is also not keeping up with the ever-changing energy technology. In this presentation, the IEA's Kevin Lane discussed the implications of cooling demand without energy efficiency, its serious implications for electricity grids, and potential solutions that can meet cooling comfort demand sustainably.
