How can the right choice of technology help protect the environment? Which policies can countries chose to enter a climate-friendly pathway? How to reverse ozone layer depletion? In times of climate emergency, HEAT provides advisory services as well as capacity building for the future. With a history of supporting Germany, as well as developing countries and economies in transition in their fight against the depletion of the earth’s protective ozone layer, the sustainable transition of the refrigeration and cooling sector is still at the core of our work. In particular, we provide emission inventories and mitigation pathways, advice on the development of policies, regulations and standards, as well as engineering services. We passionately develop capacity building and training to anchor knowledge on climate-friendly and energy-efficient technologies in our project partners’ countries and institutions. HEAT has implemented more than 300 projects in over 25 years. Our 40 staff members and experts currently assist projects in 30 countries.
Best Practice Production conversion to natural refrigerants
The number of room air conditioners is rising quickly throughout the world and especially in developing countries with warm climates. According to IEA, there could be over 3.7 billion room ACs in use in 2050. Emissions...
Best Practice Sectoral mitigation strategy – Transport refrigeration in South Africa
HEAT regularly applies a sectoral approach when striving to reduce emissions. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventories, low-carbon roadmaps and real-life pilot projects can effectively support sector transformation and...
