Trinidad and Tobago receives $5m grant for low-carbon cooling technologies

The Ministry of Planning Development said a US$5 million grant has been awarded for a national project on the development of low-carbon refrigeration and air conditioning technologies. 

In a statement issued Thursday, the ministry said the US$5.21 million grant is the largest-ever grant-funded project under the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) awarded to Trinidad and Tobago.

The Ministry said the project, led by the National Ozone Unit, in the Environmental Policy and Planning Division, will see a “sustained market change towards the adoption of low–carbon RAC technologies over the next four years”.
