At a launch meeting held last week at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory, the scientists and engineers of CaloriCoolTM, a materials research consortium, began making the to-do list for an ambitious goal: improving the energy-efficiency of refrigeration technology by 20 to 30 percent within a decade through the use of caloric materials for cooling. CaloriCoolTM is led by the Ames Laboratory, Iowa State University, and sponsored by the DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy through its Advanced Manufacturing
