ASHRAE/UNEP award targets low GWP solutions
USA: ASHRAE and UN Environment have announced an awards programme for innovative designs, research and practices of low-GWP alternative refrigerants applied in developing countries.
The Lower-GWP Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Innovation Award will be presented annually in two categories – residential applications and commercial/Industrial facilities
“We look forward to seeing entries from innovators who are committed to sustainability through the development and implementation of a new generation of low-GWP efficient solutions,” said ASHRAE president Sheila J Hayter.
The winners in each category will be selected based on innovative solutions for designs, practice or research using lower-GWP technologies. The selection will take into account the following criteria: extent of need; innovative aspects in transforming conventional practices; technical replicability to developing countries; and economy feasibility to developing countries.
Entries for the 2019 awards are open until May 15, 2019. Further information here.
