One of the main obstacles when it comes to the cooling discussion is the lack of data. Cooling is in most cases not the primary activity or process but a supporting action or a secondary product hidden in the electricity bill. Accordingly, it is often difficult to identify the actual demand or to split energy carriers according to their use for cooling and other processes.
This lack of barrier does not just hide the topic and cloud its specificities, it also forms a barrier to further developments in the sector and its appropriate treatment in policies and planning.
