Update on F-Gas price evolution monitoring by Öko-Recherche

On behalf of the European Commission (DG CLIMA), Öko-Recherche is working on a series of analysis evaluating the implementation of the F-Gas Regulation (EU) No 517/2014 since 2015. This includes, among others, monitoring of the refrigerant prices. The Q3/2019 report has been recently shared with Eurovent.

Studies indicate that efforts to improve energy efficiency are slowing down

November is the time when the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the United Nations (UN) publish their reports. The 2019 reports confirm the trend noted in 2018 that the efforts to improve energy efficiency are slowing down. The studies also mention confirmation that the need for cooling continues to increase, as does the use of electricity. The studies provide background to these evolutions.

A reappraisal of studies by IEA may be useful

Record temperatures are measured in Europe, and with the planet getting hotter due to climate change, similar heatwaves are predicted to happen more frequently. It is useful to revisit some of the recent scientific studies that Eurovent also brought to it members in the past years. Industry may need to reappraise the climatic conditions and test equipment for temperatures that are higher than those in standards and regulation to keep up with market evolutions, also in Europe.

Bulletin provides comprehensive overview on all European legislative developments for members

In cooperation with Orgalime, 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. 

Sustainable Development Goal 7 on “energy”

In 2015, members of the United Nations (UN) adopted an agenda with 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to improve the living conditions of people everywhere. The agenda was later complemented with the Paris and Kigali agreements on climate change. The UN together with partners from governments, civil society and businesses is aiming to achieve this agenda by 2030.

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

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.

European Union continues to lead global efforts to tackle climate change

On 17 July 2017, the European Council has adopted a decision to, on behalf of the European Union, conclude the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol – ensuring the protection of climate from powerful greenhouse gases, hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). With this decision, the European Union is ready for formal ratification, and has signalled its continued determination to lead global efforts to tackle climate change. What is the implementation timeline and how do future steps look like?

The IOR will be hosting the inaugural IIR International Conference on the Application of HFO Refrigerants from 2 to 5 September 2018 in Birmingham. The three-day conference will provide a focus for global experience on the use of low flammable A2L classification refrigerants, which encompass the new generation of HFO refrigerants heralded as replacements for high-GWP HFC refrigerants. The event will cover essential information for designers, manufacturers, end users and installers about characteristics of low GWP refrigerants, system and component design, lubricants, flammability, legislation, codes of practice and standards.
