A recent article by the International Energy Agency (IEA), released on July 21,2023, focuses on the recent 2023 unprecedented heatwaves which have led to record breaking temperatures, thus driving demand for air conditioning higher and straining electricity grids worldwide. The article underlines the importance of adopting energy efficiency measures & solutions to reduce emissions and ease strain on power systems, while mitigating also consumer expenses.
This is another article calling for urgent action and highlighting the increasing significance of designing buildings & systems resilient to overheating during shocks like power grid failures. Resilient ventilative cooling is a low carbon cooling solution which can significantly reduce the need for active cooling.
