Whether removal of dissipated heat in electronic systems, energy-efficient air conditioning or fast charging of Lithium-ion batteries, thermal management remains a key challenge to deploy emerging technologies such as 5G and e-mobility.
Daikin, a world-leading company both in the air conditioning and materials industries, is in a unique position to contribute with thermal management solutions.
Nowadays, data center already account for some 1-2% of the world electricity consumption and 0.4% of CO2 emissions. Therefore, it must be neccesaly to deploy energy-efficient edge computing and telecommunications infrastructures. It also requires more sophisticated thermal solutions at chip, device and infrastructure level.
And in the automotive, broad adoption of BEVs will be dependent on breaking the current limitations on charging speed, battery life span and range. In all cases, advanced thermal management solutions in the e-powertrain and the cabin can contribute to overcome the challenge.
