  Four full sessions and more than 60 talks included in the C&R 2019 FORUM programme

Foto  Four full sessions and more than 60 talks included in the C&R 2019 FORUM programme

The sessions will focus on: The reality of nearly zero energy buildings; Relevant issues in refrigerants; Updating the Regulations on Thermal Installations in Buildings in line with the Ecodesign Regulation and the requirements of the Technical Building Code; and Challenges and opportunities in the air conditioning and cooling sector

The C&R FORUM will also host 60 talks, which will include: Regulations and certification; Technological progress; Systems; Refrigerants; Air quality; Renewable energy applications; Combined cooling and air conditioning installations, and Installation success stories.

Organised by IFEMA, the next C&R trade fair will be held from 26 February to 1 March in the halls at Feria de Madrid

Four full sessions and more than 60 talks are included in the C&R 2019 FORUM programme of seminars. As always, the International Heating, Ventilation, Air conditioning and Refrigeration Exhibition (C&R) provides a platform for knowledge-sharing and topical analysis of the sector, offered in parallel to the trade show. This major professional event, organised by IFEMA, involves the participation of 700 companies and will be held from 26 February to 1 March at Feria de Madrid.

The C&R Forum will include four full sessions - one on each day of the trade fair - focusing on the following topics: The reality of nearly zero energy buildings; Relevant issues in refrigerants; Updating the Regulations on Thermal Installations in Buildings in line with the Ecodesign Regulation and the requirements of the Technical Building Code; and Challenges and opportunities in the air conditioning and cooling sector.

There will also be more than 60 talks, based on contributions from industry professionals and selected by the trade fair’s Organising Committee, which will cover: Regulations and certification; Technological progress; Systems; Refrigerants; Air quality; Renewable energy applications; Combined cooling and air conditioning installations, and Installation success stories.

Session on Nearly Zero Energy Buildings, 26 February

The first full session, entitled ‘The reality of nearly zero energy buildings’, organised by AEDICI (Association of Installation Engineering and Engineering Consultants) and AFEC (Association of Air Conditioning Equipment Manufacturers), will deal with the importance of the new Technical Building Code with regard to almost zero energy buildings. The discussion will also consider interaction with air conditioning installations, specific measures and support available for these types of buildings from the Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving, and real-world information about these buildings in other countries.

Session on Refrigerants, 27 February

AEFYT (Association of Cooling Companies and Technologies) and AFEC are organising the second session, which will address ‘Relevant issues in refrigerants’, along with four talks on ‘Refrigerants and the Spanish Regulation on Refrigeration Installation Safety: Background and impact; Natural refrigerants; New opportunities’,  ‘A2L refrigerants: Regulations and technology working together in response to the needs of the sector’, ‘Conflicts with restrictions on gases: F-gases, taxes, contraband and misleading advertising’, and  ‘Limitations on the retrofitting and dismantling of refrigeration installations: Management of liquid refrigerants as waste’.

Session on the Regulations on Thermal Installations in Buildings and the Ecodesign Regulation, 28 February

This full session, organised by ATECYR (Spanish Technical Association for Air Conditioning and Refrigeration), is entitled ‘Updating the Regulations on Thermal Installations in Buildings in line with the Ecodesign Regulation and the requirements of the Technical Building Code’. It will discuss the need to extend requirements in terms of the design and scale of installations, as well as energy efficiency in air and water distribution to meet the requirements of HE0. Heating diffusion needs to be designed and scaled in such a way that, in the future, buildings can be easily decarbonised. Production of DHW at 60oC should not be an obstacle to producing heating at a lower temperature and therefore more efficiently.

The session will also address which aspects of the Spanish Regulations will be critical in the transposition of many of the requirements of Directive 2018/844, which must be completed by February 2020. These include the changes necessary to transform existing buildings to nearly zero energy buildings, and to implement automation and control systems for installations of more than 290 kW, so that these installations can be properly monitored, analysed and controlled.

Session on Air Conditioning, 1 March

‘Challenges and opportunities in the air conditioning sector’ is the title of the fourth session, organised by AEDICI and AFEC. The various corresponding talks will deal with the most important points from the outcomes of several workshops, to be held jointly by various associations from the sector. Topics will include ‘Challenges and opportunities in the air conditioning sector’, ‘Reflections on issues with installations in the air conditioning sector’, ‘Key aspects in regulation and control’, and ‘The importance of indoor air quality’.
