“For ABB as a major supplier to the HVACR industry, the engagement in and support to industry associations plays a crucial role in assisting the development of improved solutions to our customers. Energy efficiency and sustainability in HVACR are of course becoming increasingly important, as we move to tackle the challenging issues of climate change and increased urbanization,” says Frank Grundholm.
Grundholm highlights the importance of building strong foundations for sustainability through collaboration between the industry association and authorities in the region. “This collaboration is critical in a complex region like the Middle East, where both international as well as American standards play a vital role. By linking the industry and the authorities in this effort, we can ensure the strongest possible foundation for Middle East cities going forward, thus helping to secure a sustainable future for this dynamic part of the world.
Eurovent Middle East is the regional industry association for Energy Efficiency, Indoor Air Quality and Cold Chain Solutions. Its participants represent the leading manufacturers of HVAC, Process Cooling, Food Cold Chain, Industrial Ventilation, and Building Automation Technologies, as well as sector associations and industry initiatives active in these fields. Eurovent Middle East has considerably grown and developed since its inception and is now planning to expand to Pakistan and Egypt. It is active on multiple regulatory issues, supporting authorities with combined feedback from the industry and its members. The acclaimed HVACR Leadership Workshops will be expanded with Building Retrofit, Cold Chain and Data Center Cooling events in the future.
ABB plans to actively participate in Eurovent Middle East’s future seminars, sharing our unique insights on digitalization in the cold chain and on improving part-load efficiency in existing buildings.
