Affordable and Sustainable Cooling Future for India

NRDC and its partners, the Indian Institute of Public Health – Gandhinagar (IIPH-G) and the Administrative Staff College of India (ASCI), are piloting affordable cooling options in a low-income housing community in Hyderabad. The cool roof pilot project aims to demonstrate cost-effective solutions to increase thermal comfort and also provide health benefits. Another objective is to develop sustainable financing solutions in partnership with city officials and other key stakeholders to scale these solutions.

As part of the work on phasing down hydrofluorocarbons in India and advancing energy efficiency, NRDC is working with partners, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and the Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development (IGSD) on a pilot program for climate-friendly and energy efficient room air conditioners in India. Cool-roof programs work to decrease the demand for cooling while providing comfort.

Similarly, green ACs and building energy efficiency are smart solutions for cities that provide a key opportunity to reduce demand and generate energy savings that translate directly to financial savings. These actions together will build a smart, sustainable and affordable cooling future for cities in India.
