Next edition of Europe’s HVACR flagship event to take place in Antalya, Turkey

Representatives of ISKID (Turkey’s Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Manufacturers’ Association) and Eurovent signed an agreement to jointly organise the 2020 EUROVENTSUMMIT. They announced that the next edition of Europe’s major gathering for Indoor Climate (HVAC), Process Cooling, and Food Cold Chain Technologies will take place in Antalya, Turkey, from 22 to 25 September 2020.

Consultation until 3 October 2019

The revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) 2018/884 introduces a ‘Smart Readiness Indicator’ (SRI). The SRI will measure the buildings' capacity to use new technologies and electronic systems to adapt to the needs of the consumer, optimise its operation and interact with the grid. The European Commission has asked a consortium to develop the SRI. A first report was published in 2018.  The second study should prepare for the adoption of a delegated act by the end of 2019. 

Bulletin provides comprehensive overview on all European legislative developments for members

In cooperation with Orgalim, the Eurovent Team regularly provides you with an in-depth overview on all European legislative developments of relevance for the HVACR sector. The Bulletin provides for a hands-on compendium allowing the industry to assess the status quo and expected future developments. In addition to recent sector specific issues, our Team has summarised some of the key takeaways within this article.

Technology Collaboration Programme on Energy Efficient End-use Equipment (4E)

The IEA 4E 2018 Annual Report makes for interesting reading. It provides, amongst others, policy guidelines for motor-driven units such as fans, pumps and compressors. Within two pages, these guidelines summarise the activities and documents developed by the 4E Electric Motor System Annex (EMSA), which contains most useful information for manufacturers integrating electric motor systems. An upcoming activity will investigate the technological developments in the air conditioning industry, updating earlier reports from 2010-2011.

Illegal imports higher than believed according to EIS study, declaration for 2020 quota to be made between 17 June and 17 July 2019

During the recent F-Gas Roundtable it was assumed that most illegal refrigerants relate to automotive air conditioning. The recent report by the Environmental Investigation Agency EIA shows that, according to customs declarations, the issue of illegal imports in Europe is more widespread than previously estimated.

Final report published

The European Commission initiated this study to analyse and develop a potential scoring system to rate the ability to repair and - where relevant - upgrade products. The Commissions’ Joint Research Centre in Seville executed this study during the past 12 months. The scoring system was tested for laptops, vacuum cleaners, and washing machines. 

Report 2018 available, including revised forecasts

The European Commission monitors and reports on the impact of Ecodesign and Energy Labelling measures, with a view to improve its understanding of the impacts over time and to fine-tune forecasting and reporting. The interest for the Eurovent members relates to forecast that is presented in the 2018 report and how this may affect ongoing and new review studies. 

Complemented by an EU code of conduct on data centre energy efficiency

The ICT sector generates up to 2% of the global CO2 emissions. The increase in data centres has pushed the European Commission to support projects that would improve the energy efficiency of these centres.
