Technology in the HVACR industry is in the beginning of a great Renaissance. Decarbonization and electrification of buildings, the transition from fossil fuels, new M1 regulations and how this affects system testing by manufacturers I.E. SEER2, flammable refrigerants, incentives from the Inflation Reduction Act and utilities are a few examples of the transition HVACR professionals must prepare for.
The United States Department of Energy along with their international counterparts are putting forth initiatives for decarbonization and electrification. Subsequently, utilities are seeking ways to improve the efficacy of their grids, encourage more efficient use of consumed power, integrate renewable energy resources, all while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. As the HVACR industry moves away from fossil fuels, HVACR professionals will need to be educated on the technologies that spearheading the electrification of our industry to stay relevant and participate in utility incentives.
Similarly, the signing of the American Innovation and Manufacturing (AIM) Act, in December of 2020 began the phasedown of HFC refrigerants. Consequently, HVACR professionals must prepare for the safe handling, storage, and transportation of Low GWP Refrigerants, many of which are flammable.
The future is here! To keep apprised of these changes, we have two-great opportunities for you to get first-hand information from leading manufacturers, and matter experts. Join us each Thursday at 4:30 eastern for our live webcast. Then join us at the South Point Hotel, March 20-22, 2023, to meet in person with these leaders during the National HVACR Education Conference.
