Congratulations to the 13 cutting-edge innovators from across the world & 18 leading Latin American companies selected by TechEmerge and our panel of expert advisors to pilot new sustainable cooling solutions on the ground in Mexico and Colombia. They will conduct more than 20 pilots to field test and validate innovations that cut the costs, energy use, and climate impacts of cooling. These include game-changing solutions for space cooling, transport and logistics, industrial and commercial sectors, and the cooling ecosystem. 

A total pool of $1.5 million in grant funding supports pilot implementation. TechEmerge also provides valuable support throughout field testing, mitigating financial and operational risks for innovators, reducing adoption risks for local firms, and facilitating market-entry and tech transfer.

The TechEmerge Sustainable Cooling Innovation Program is implemented in partnership with the Government of the United Kingdom.
