It was not only overcrowded during the REHVA cocktail, but the same happened during the AASA (ASHRAE Associate Society Alliance). On the invitation of ASHRAE, always many HVAC societies worldwide come together to meet and discuss under the leadership of Tom Watson, past president of ASHRAE, on global issues. All the representatives are challenged to present ‘news’ from their country/society in the field of HVAC related research or sustainability policy in general. During this meeting too, DANVAK had the opportunity to inform all representatives about the next REHVA Clima 2016.
A very good presentation was given by Dr. Shamila Nair-Bedouelle, Head of UNEP OzonAction Branch about the goal to realize a sustainable phase-out of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) in refrigeration and air conditioning applications; maximizing the climate benefits of using low-GWP alternatives including aspects of energy saving in buildings; as well as facilitating the transfer and adoption of sustainable and feasible technologies to developing countries.
And last but definitely not least, Hans Besselink, member of REHVA-COP, presented the results of TVVL research work, financially supported by REHVA, regarding the “TVVL roadmap to nZEB”. To download this report please click here.
