The Global Cooling Prize invites innovators from across the globe to develop affordable and climate-friendly cooling solutions that meet the needs of millions of people around the world.

The Global Cooling Prize is an international competition that was launched on November 12, 2018, to call upon participants around the world to develop a breakthrough residential cooling technology that has at least 5x less climate impact when compared to a baseline unit. The solution must meet a variety of climate- and resource-focused criteria, while also operating within cost and scalability constraints. This exciting competition will take place over the course of two years and will allow participants the opportunity to address one of the single largest end-use risks to our climate.
