The ceremony will feature the global announcement of the breakthrough cooling technologies selected as the Finalists of the Global Cooling Prize and keynote presentations on the technologies. These cooling solutions will be selected based upon their potential to have at least five times (5X) less climate impact than standard entry-level room AC units being sold in the market today, while demonstrating performance on all the other prize criteria. Each of these selected teams will be awarded the first installment of the US$200,000 award to develop and deliver two working prototypes of their cooling technology for testing in India over the summer of 2020. The award ceremony will also feature special remarks from global leaders and policymakers on the dais.
