J2 Innovations is Eurovent Summit BridgeBuilding Supporter

Brussels, Los Angeles, 02 August 2022. J2 Innovations, a provider of management, control and optimisation software for HVAC and refrigeration equipment, has become an official BridgeBuilding Supporter (sponsor) of the 2022 Eurovent Summit in Antalya, Türkiye.

J2 Innovations (J2) is a provider of management, control and optimisation software for HVAC and refrigeration equipment. J2 provides the open software platform, FIN Framework, to automation and equipment manufacturers who utilise the framework to create their own branded edge software products. Based in California and with business operations in North America, EMEA and China, J2 is a wholly owned subsidiary of Siemens AG.

Mr Alex Rohweder, CEO at J2 Innovations, will be one of the keynote speakers at the Summit’s flagship event Eurovent Innovation/HUB, focused on building bridges between innovation and sustainability. Rowheder’s contribution, titled ‘Dear building, let me introduce you to building management’, will focus on extending and intensifying the role of HVAC manufacturers in a landscape of unmanaged commercial buildings.

He stated in this respect: “Today, about 80% of all commercial buildings do not have a building management software in place. It is time for equipment manufacturers to seize the opportunity and create ‘system-in-a-box’ type edge solutions for managing their HVAC products and associated ancillary equipment, either managing the plant room or even the whole building. HVAC equipment manufacturers are in a prime position to provide the market with simplified BMS type functionality, with a particular focus on the light commercial building market. Providing a BMS offering to this market segment is essential to stay in sync with legislation changes and to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of this building type” Rohweder further added: “The Eurovent Summit is a pivotal international event in the HVACR sector that will provide manufacturers with an opportunity to build relations with J2 Innovations and other like-minded companies and bring forth solutions for managing their products.”

This year’s EUROVENTSUMMIT is co-organised with ISKID, the Turkish Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Manufacturers’ Association. It aims at #BuildingBridges between manufacturers and consultants, planners, installers, trade associations and policy makers, between Europe, the East and beyond, towards more sustainable and circular products, and towards more socially and environmentally responsible industry.

Apart from the above, other highlights include the Eurovent Innovation/HUB, a rich seminar programme focused on both ventilation and refrigeration organised by ISKID and TTMD (Turkish Society of HVAC and Sanitary Engineers) in English and Turkish or the ‘Legends of Eurovent’ event to celebrate the ongoing generation change within the industry and honour significant legends that have contributed to its development.
