HEAT contributed to a study in preparation of the COP27 Climate Change Conference. This study provides an overview of the status of international climate negotiations and issues at stake at COP27. It also addresses the current implementation of the Paris Agreement, the stakeholders in the negotiations and the climate policies of key Parties. The document is available for download on the European Parliament Website. It was requested by the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI).

The revision of IEC 60335-2-40 towards the safe use of hydrocarbon refrigerants in room air conditioners
Refrigerants, Naturally! for LIFE: removing barriers to climate friendly cooling in Europe’s small food retail market. A new project called “Refrigerants, Naturally! for LIFE” supporting the uptake of climate-friendly cooling alternatives among end-users of refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump (RACHP) equipment and servicing providers, has started in June 2019. The project is funded under the EU-LIFE programme.
The partners of the EU-funded LIFE FRONT project are delighted to share with you a new report about the availability of hydrocarbon-based technology and the impact of standards on the future adoption in the EU. The report maps the relevant European and international safety standards. With input from a wide industry survey it reviews the current market for hydrocarbon-based equipment, while evaluating the future potential of the technology taking into consideration a potential review of standards.
First LIFE FRONT webinar registers high interest in hydrocarbon standards! The one-hour webinar offered a clear overview of the project activities, including both those completed so far and future actions. A particular focus was devoted to the current situation regarding standards and barriers to flammable refrigerants within the European Union and internationally. The expectations and efforts made by the project partners within the standardisation process in this sector were also debated. Recording of the webinar and presentation slides are now available for download.
HEAT together with the project partners ECOS, AHT, ait-deutschland GmbH and NIBE AB recently won the Shecco lead project on “Flammable Refrigerant Options for Natural Technologies – Improved standards & product design for their safe use (FRONT)” funded by EU LIFE Climate Change Mitigation.
HEAT together with the consortium members GFA Consulting Group, ANKON and Öko-Recherche recently won the GFA led project “Technical Assistance for Increased Capacity for Transposition and Capacity Building on F-gases in Turkey” co-financed by the European Union and the Republic of Turkey.
HEAT is proud to announce being an official observer to the CoolingEU initiative. The role of the observers is to monitor and support the development of the forum without subscribing necessarily to all forum’s opinions.
