The European Partnership for Energy and the Environment (EPEE) and the European Ventilation Industry Association (EVIA) are holding their inaugural conference “EUREKA 2016: Heating, Cooling, Ventilation & Refrigeration: Sustainable technologies for a better life” on 13 December at the Marriott Hotel in The Hague.


This major event will showcase the heating, cooling and ventilation industry’s impact on the European Union’s energy and climate goals, demonstrate the potential, attractiveness and innovative nature of our industry, and provide an excellent platform for networking.

In parallel, participants from industry will be able to see for themselves how much EU and national policies impact our sector and the extent to which policy change can be a positive driver for innovation and new technologies.

It is precisely these broad-based objectives that make the event unique and, we hope, a regular fixture for many years to come.

Undoubtedly, one of the highlights of the calendar year, EUREKA 2016 will assemble representatives from industry, users, and the academic community to discuss with European and national policymakers the challenges and opportunities our industry faces in this rapidly changing global context,

The conference organisers have already attracted many high-profile sponsors, including Carel, Emerson, Danfoss, Daikin Europe, Mitsubishi Electric, RLT Herstellerverband and Systemair, and a number of engaging speakers have already been confirmed: from policy-makers and leading industry associations, scientific institutes and universities, through to researchers and end-users. To name just a few: The European Commission, AREA (contractors’ association), REHVA (federation of engineers’ association), EHPA (heat pumps), IIR (International Institute of Refrigeration), the London Southbank University, the Aachen Technical University, Deloitte, Delhaize, and many more.

The opening Plenary Session, featuring a keynote speech by a distinguished guest, will be followed by 4 break-out panel sessions on the following topics which capture some of the major topics dominating today’s HVACR sector:

  • The role of refrigeration in reducing food waste
  • Increasing political awareness on indoor air quality & thermal comfort 
  • The impact of the new F-Gas rules in Europe and beyond
  • Driving energy efficiency in buildings 

Avoid disappointment and register on our dedicated event website to benefit from the early bird fee.
