On January 31, the US National Team for the HPT TCP had a meeting in conjunction with the ASHRAE Winter Conference in Las Vegas. One of the major topics that were discussed were the ambition to have an Annex on air-conditioning within the Programme. The next step in developing a proposal for such an Annex is a workshop – regarding “Future Non-Traditional Air-Conditioning (and Heating) Technologies for Buildings” – that will be held on May 15, 2017 during the 12th IEA Heat Pump Conference in Rotterdam. A description of the topic and challanges can be found here.
Other topics for the US National Teams meeting were an update on the activities within the HPT TCP by Caroline Haglund Stignor from Heat Pump Centre, update on programme of the IEA Heat Pump Conference in May, highlights from National Teams and ExCo meeting in November, current Annex update and schedule and topics for the HPT Magazine during 2017.
