Developing cooling technologies could boost thousands of jobs in UK
Developing cooling technologies in the UK could create 10,000 jobs by 2025, a new report suggests, writes Energy Live News.
The Emerging Cold Economy report by The Carbon Trust claims the UK could become a leader in the “cold economy” because it already has in place a number of low carbon cold technologies and “world-class” capabilities in cryogenics, engineering and manufacturing.
Cooling products use 14% of UK electricity and the combined cost of electric and transport cooling is more than £5 billion per year.
Cold technologies support many parts of modern day life, from air conditioning and cooling medicine to the ‘cold chain’ of refrigerated warehouses.
