“Analysis of cold storage infrastructure in West Bengal- Retrofitting opportunities in the ESCO model” was developed under the Alliance for Sustainable Habitat, Energy Efficiency and Thermal Comfort (SHEETAL) project, in collaboration with Energy Efficiency Services Limited and funded by Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF). The report presents West Bengal’s cold storage scenario, identifying the potential opportunities by modernizing and retrofitting cold-storages to reduce food loss, improving energy performance baseline and developing the state-level energy-saving projection. In addition, the report recommends the way forward for policy and technology for large-scale implementation of the proposed retrofitting and modernization.
