Purpose

The Sustainable Technologies for Stationary Air Conditioning Workshop builds on a series of workshops addressing different fields of HFC applications. Held on the margins of the International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Winter Meeting, the workshop aims to familiarize participants with climate-friendly and cost-effective AC technologies which have proven their applicability and show that phasing down high-GWP HFCs is manageable. All relevant application fields will be addressed by international experts from developed and developing countries in panel discussions including safety, high ambient temperature (HAT) operation performance, intellectual property rights (IPR), energy efficiency and technology transfer issues. In addition, issues related to policies and standards associated with introducing and using these refrigerants and technologies in both developing and developed countries will be discussed.

Participants

The workshop will give insights into the latest developments of AC technology and appliances operating with low-GWP refrigerants and corresponding issues as described in the paragraph above. Target audience members include AHR Expo visitors, interested National Ozone and Climate Protection Officers and other government representatives, as well as representatives from international organizations, industry, and environmental organizations.

Additional information

  • The conference will be conducted in the English language. Interpretation will not be available.
  • Participants may wish to come one or two days earlier to see the AHR Expo free of charge with pre-registration. They may also attend the ASHRAE conference (separate conference fee required).
