The Sustainable Technologies for Air Conditioning Workshop is the sixth in a series of workshops developed by the HFC Initiative of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition’s (CCAC), in collaboration with other Partners, to provide information on advances in alternatives for different fields of application where HFC use is growing. The workshop was the second one to focus exclusively on alternatives in the air conditioning sector, one of the largest sectors currently using high-GWP HFCs and HCFCs. In partnership with the CCAC, the Alliance for Responsible Atmospheric Policy, as well as the governments of Canada, Germany and the United States of America provided in-kind and/or financial support for the workshop.    .

Held on the margins of the 29th Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol (November 20–24, 2017) in Montreal, Canada, the workshop was attended by more than 230 experts and representatives from governments, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector.

Nearly 30 international experts from developed and developing countries presented on the latest advancements in key HFC alternative technologies for the air conditioning sector, and topics related to safety, operation performance in many environments (including high ambient temperatures), energy efficiency, and technology deployment.
