The coolingEU forum brings together stakeholders representing the European cooling demand and supply sector. coolingEU works as a collaborative forum to promote a more efficient and cleaner cooling supply, increase the number of dedicated research projects in cooling and raise awareness of the importance of cooling.
Cooling is an important aspect of the fresh produce sector. It is used across the entire supply chain with a preference for a closed cooling chain from producer to end product consumption. Due to its importance in the sector, Freshfel Europe is an observer in the cooling EU forum.
The associations, industries and NGOs part of coolingEU represent more than 2,000 members in 30 countries in Europe and beyond, including national associations, research institutes, universities and companies.
Why cooling? Cooling has long been under-represented in energy policy compared to heat, power and transport. The European Commission has recognised this and took a first step with the launch of its Heating and Cooling Strategy in February 2016. coolingEU allows collaborative thinking to work towards more efficient and cleaner cooling.
