A hospital in Aydin, Turkey, is to serve as a test case to demonstrate that it is possible to reduce energy consumption by 50% and decrease greenhouse gas emissions with retrofitting solutions.
The ministry for the environment of Germany considers necessary the development of transport CO2-based air-conditioning systems
The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety of Germany made a statement about the continued development of transport air-conditioning systems based on the natural refrigerant CO2 instead of using doubtful alternative R1234yf.
The capital of Qatar provided two ultra-modern fanzones cooled by the latest climate technology for football fans watching the matches of the recently concluded World Cup FIFA ™ 2014 in Brazil.
BOULDER, Colo. — Because of the substantial number of existing buildings, retrofits are a critical pathway to greening the world’s commercial buildings, notes Navigant Research.
As well as celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Adcock Refrigeration and Air Conditioning has launched a new payment scheme to help businesses replace old or inefficient air-conditioning and refrigeration systems.
Sleep is essential for good health, as we all know. But a new study hints that there may be an easy but unrealized way to augment its virtues: lower the thermostat. Cooler bedrooms could subtly transform a person’s stores of brown fat — what has lately come to be thought of as “good fat” — and consequently alter energy expenditure and metabolic health, even into daylight hours.
Energy recovery ventilation systems will reach nearly $3 billion in annual revenue by 2020, forecasts navigant research
BOULDER, Colo.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—An energy recovery ventilator (ERV) is a type of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment that uses the energy associated with the thermally conditioned air being exhausted from a building to precondition the incoming air.
By January 1, 2017 all new car models Acs must be charged with a low GWP refrigerant. The main contenders in this category at the moment are working substances CO2 and R1234yf.
The world heat pump market increased 7.2% by volume in 2013 to almost 2 million units. The growth was driven by the strong progression of sales of heat pump water heater in the USA especially on the one hand, and the recovery of the European market on the other hand.
New research from Parks Associates shows young consumers, those with children, and those in a home for three to four years are leading the adoption of Internet-connected smart home energy management devices.
According to the German Federal Bureau of Statistics, the share of heat pumps used as primary heating device for newly constructed residential buildings was 32,2% in 2013 – a gain of 2% compared to 2012.
