Join us on a virtual journey to climate- and ozone-friendly RAC systems in Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe. First stop: Germany.
In this first online event of our virtual Technology Roadshow we will meet three experts from Germany:
- A professor and book author on the subject of solar cooling. The focus will be on solar powered cold stores and options for energy storage.
- A technical manager who has accompanied the planning and installation process of CO2 and propane-based air conditioning in an office building. We will talk about challenges and benefits of this ambitious pilot project.
- A developer of a special software who tells us what to consider when converting commercial refrigeration systems to propane based on 3 scenarios with different plant sizes.
