Vo & Airro

2022

Why cool entire spaces when we only need to cool a person? Copious amounts of energy are wasted in trying to keep people cool, especially with more frequent and intense warm-weather events. At present ,10% of global electricity consumption is used for cooling, which is set to triple by 2050, making staying safe in a warming climate expensive and energy intensive. Cooling entire spaces when we only need to cool people wastes vast amounts of energy and increases carbon emissions. Vo & Airro offers a sustainable way to keep people cool where airflow is precise and efficient, focused on the individual.
