Anzala Asher, Product Engineer, Taqeef, writes on how HVAC is critical to curbing global carbon emissions, what to keep in mind to ensure buildings are designed to meet the region’s net-zero goals and why VRF systems can unlock significant energy savings.
With emission reduction targets looming, the HVACR industry should leave no stone unturned when it comes to retrofitting to unlock greater efficiencies. Experts discuss opportunities in the sector and the shift in attitude required to truly move away from cost-centric thinking.
There are noticeable gaps in market surveillance within the GCC region, a problem that can be detrimental not only to the general safety of the population using products that may not be compliant with existing standards but also to the long-term sustainability and energy efficiency goals of each country.
Even though COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of clean, healthy indoor air, outdated ideas and cost-centric thinking continue to put filtration practices, and as a result, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), on the back burner. Experts reflect on the issue and discuss what changes need to happen…
The GCC region has a long road ahead when it comes to phasing down F-gases in line with the targets set by the Montreal Protocol, largely because of the region’s heavy dependence on the cooling sector. Experts weigh in on the complex issues that exist in the market, what problems must be addressed and what support is needed from manufacturers and governments to support the transition.
There is an urgent need to reduce CO2 emissions and accelerate energy efficiency in the Middle East, with fast-approaching environmental targets looming. As HVAC plays a critical role in meeting these broader objectives, experts reflect on low-hanging fruits that can be tackled and what the region can learn from markets that have adopted more efficient regulations early on.
Eurovent Middle East looks at the critical conversations that took place at the recently concluded COP27 to showcase the persistent climate issues that hope to find a resolution in COP28, which is set to convene from 30 November to 12 December 2023 in the UAE.
Eurovent Middle East’s 5 Year Anniversary Congress brought together more than 350 high-level stakeholders from government and industry to discuss a variety of important aspects impacting energy efficiency and sustainability in the region. Markus Lattner, Managing Director of Eurovent Middle East, elaborates on key takeaways and possible initiatives resulting from the event.
The European Commission will establish a High-Level Forum on European Standardisation, bringing together Member States, standardisation bodies, industry, SMEs, civil society and academia to help set priorities, advise on standardisation needs, and boost EU competitiveness.
