Cooling - tracking clean energy progress

Buildings & Cities - IEA article - Key Takeaway: *Cooling is the fastest-growing end use in buildings, as its energy demand more than tripled between 1990 and 2018 to around 2 000 terawatt hours (TWh) of electricity. While much higher-efficiency air conditioners are currently available, most people purchase new air conditioners that are two to three times less efficient. To put cooling in line with the SDS, standards need to be put in place to improve performance by more than 50% by 2030. This will help cut energy use and emissions from space cooling and limit the capacity additions required to meet peak electricity demand.*
