Commercial and industrial refrigeration tends to fall by the wayside in the transformation towards greener technologies, despite major technological advancements in the sector offering greater opportunity for more energy savings and reduced operational costs. Eurovent Middle East digs deeper.
Eurovent Middle East has entered into its 5th year of existence amid an ongoing global pandemic. The lack of physical meetings, events, exhibitions, conferences and seminars, has taught us to make more use of digital platforms and to conduct online meetings at home while the kids redecorate the kitchen, dogs reshape the sofa, and with the cat tanning on our keyboard.
On behalf of all of us at Eurovent, I would like to sincerely wish you a very happy holiday season and a prosperous New Year. May it be filled with health and happiness, as well as personal and professional success and growth for all.
Eurovent Middle East has announced the next webinar within its HVACR Leadership Workshops series, focusing on technologies best suited to retrofitting in supermarkets in order to reduce energy consumption. Commercial refrigeration systems account for about 40-60% of the electricity consumption in supermarkets according to various studies in the market. Purchase of new, high-efficiency refrigeration equipment has cost implications, which is why targeted retrofits or upgrades to existing systems can be the most cost-effective and practical strategy for many food retailers, supermarket owners and chains.
Quality control, product performance and safety are topics which are being focused on more and more in a world driven by price competitiveness. Although manufacturers run stringent quality control and performance tests in-house, third-party testing and certification serves as a means to verify and ensure that the data published by manufacturers is unbiased and attested. During this webinar, the seminars aim to deliver an understanding of the principles behind certification as a means to promote trust and reliability in the context of product performance and safety.
