Coordinating finance for sustainable refrigeration and air conditioning
Time Description Room / Location Level / Floor
13:30
Organizer: GIZ Description: One of the challenges to achieve successful low-carbon transformation in line with the climate goals set out in the Paris Agreement is the provision and effective deployment of public and private finance to enable widespread uptake of low-carbon technologies. GHG mitigation in the refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) sector faces a particular challenge when implementing effective finance strategies, given its cross-sectoral nature – extending from the manufacturing of gases and appliances to the energy end-use in buildings – and hence the coordination of complex institutional responsibilities for sector policies and compliance regimes (UNFCCC, Montreal Protocol). Against this backdrop, this side event addresses questions related to the financing of the low-carbon transition of the RAC sector.

First results from CO2 transcritical supermarket demo project in Jordan
Time Description Room / Location Level / Floor
13:30
Organizer: CCAC and UNIDO Description: In February 2018, the first transcritical CO2 supermarket in the Middle East opened at the Al-Salam military supermarket in Amman, Jordan. The demonstration project was supported by the Ministry of Environment of Jordan, funded by CCAC and implemented by UNIDO. To ensure high efficiency also during the high ambient temperatures in the summer months, the system integrates state-of-the-art ejector technology. The first results from the energy efficiency monitoring and comparison with an HFC alternative system as well as its impact on the environment and food waste reduction will be shared and discussed with the audience.

Morocco Banker's AC Buyers Club as a Pilot for an All-Africa Buyers Club
Time Description Room / Location Level / Floor
13:30
Organizer: IGSD Description: This side event describes the success in Morocco of estimating the consumer, community, and global advantages of lower-GWP room ACs achieving super-efficiency in high ambient temperatures and how lower prices achieved by A5 Buyers Clubs in Morocco can be offered Africa-wide where governments align energy efficiency policy.

Impressive Results of the CCAC Demonstration in India of Secondary Loop Motor Vehicle ACs (SL-MACS) by TATA Motors, Mahle, and IGSD
Time Description Room / Location Level / Floor
18:30
Organizer: IGSD Description: This side event describes how new SL-MAC technology can reduce by half the greenhouse gas refrigerant emissions and increase overall vehicle fuel efficiency by up to 3%, depending on climate, congestion, and kilometers driven. The technology can be applied to R-134a (GWP=1300), R-152a (GWP=138) and HFO-1234yf (GWP).

Ways forward to reduce HFC emissions in light of the Kigali Amendment Lessons learned from Europe – an industry perspective
Time Description Room / Location Level / Floor
18:30
Organizer: EPEE Description: In light of the Kigali Amendment on the global phase-down of HFCs, which will enter into force on 1st January 2019, countries have started investigating adequate political measures to achieve the HFC consumption reduction steps as set out in the Amendment. In parallel, energy efficiency has become a top priority to cater for globally growing needs of HVACR equipment while ensuring its sustainability, given that the largest share of emissions by HVACR equipment is related to energy use (indirect emissions) rather than to the refrigerant itself (direct emissions). EPEE’s workshop is intended to provide an overview of lessons learned from the European experience for countries which are currently considering different options to achieve the Kigali HFC phase-down steps.
