Refrigeration in the supermarket sector (GEN - 821.00)

Danish Technological Institute (DTI) to host a high-ranking conference

GEN - 821.00. The Danish Technological Institute (DTI) is organising a high-ranking, two-day conference on refrigeration in the supermarket sector. It will take place at Taastrup (Copenhagen) from 8-9 November 2017. This conference focusses on the energy challenges and on how all parties of the cooling chain may benefit from the ongoing and upcoming regulations and by having an up-to-date climate policy. The ongoing trends towards natural refrigerants, especially CO2, and the supermarkets’ shift from R404A to CO2 will be analysed and discussed by major European refrigeration experts. In the course of the event, two interesting sessions on the challenges for producers, suppliers, installers, and end-users will also take place. The Danish Energy Agency is contributing to the conference, which is supported by Eurovent Association.


The conference is primarily targeted at suppliers of cooling systems, installers, and supermarkets, i.e. representatives from both the purchasing department, energy management and daily operations.

Mr Bjarke Hansem, Danish Energy Agency, will introduce the ongoing challenges and opportunities for the industry in his opening speech.
