Electrification of buildings has become a policy imperative of numerous states concerned about climate change. They are implementing policies that aim to de-carbonize electricity production by greater reliance on renewable energy sources.
Throughout the event, attendees gathered at different tables to discuss various topics including radiant heating and controls, geothermal, solar, indoor air quality, innovative construction, hiring and training, making steam heating more efficient, tricks of the trade, the future of the industry, and more.
Hydronic heating systems must be filled with water to provide the heat transfer fluid (HTF) that makes them work. In the case of the closed-loop solar heating system, the HTF is typically a mixture of water and propylene glycol.
Sustainable energy, building performance and refrigeration technologies were just some of the topics of great interest as HVACR professionals from around the world exchanged knowledge at this year's conference.
