“It is important to make the population aware of the reduction in energy consumption and it is essential that we all, from our trenches, do the same; and ask us from private industry to create a common front to promote sustainable energy actions and strategies. which allows us to act promptly and responsibly in favor of caring for our planet”, Jose Carlos Gomez, Northern LAR sales director at Thermo King, said.
Mexico is a country with great solar energy development, one of the countries with the highest annual growth in distributed generation in Latin America and could triple its installed capacity in the next five years. According to the WEF (World Economic Forum), Mexico has great potential for renewable energy: the country has set a target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by a minimum of 22% by 2030 and 50% by 2050 compared to 2000.
Conventional energy generation sources are already obsolete and highly polluting, fossil fuels have an expiration date, given that there will be no more oil in less than 60 years and coal in two centuries.
In this sense, Thermo King, a world leader in transportation temperature control systems for trucks, trailers, buses, rail cars and on-board containers, believes that focusing efforts on the development of new solutions to the refrigerated transportation industry should do, which are largely driven by measured. Such is the case of solar panels in last mile units, by adopting eco-friendly technologies along with the environment.
“For Thermo King, it is essential that in regions like ours, in which energy consumption is critical, technologies are developed and promoted in favor of the planet, which help maintain the continuous operation of refrigeration equipment systems and Which reduce fuel consumption and CO emissions.2, Jose Carlos commented.
The refrigerated transport industry is in the manufacturing process that is the best option for moving goods, promoting innovation such as the use of solar panels to save energy or monitoring or telematics technology that helps protect goods and protect the environment. cares, moreover is more profitable for companies.
“Taking into account global problems such as climate change today allows us to be one of the brands that has the talent and expertise to create solutions to reduce energy dependence, emissions and conserve food, water and other natural resources. seek innovation”, Jose Carlos concluded.
