SEAD Policy Exchange Forum - ACs and Low-GWP Refrigerants

11 May 2017 - 12:00, Webinar

Given the significant impact on climate change, the next SEAD Policy Exchange Forum (SPEx) webinar is dedicated to the discussion of ACs and alternative refrigerants. The webinar is aimed to provide substantive information on the most recent developments in AC and refrigerant policies and technologies. In the upcoming SPEx webinar in May 2017, experts and policymakers will share their experiences on this topic from different perspectives.

Some of the key questions that will be discussed include:

  • What are the latest developments on the Kigali Amendment and how should countries prepare? How can high efficiency ACs and low-GWP refrigerants help countries to meet their phase-down schedule and climate goals? 
  • What are the options for alternative refrigerants and what are their applications?
  • How can countries use policy tools to promote the adoption of high-efficiency ACs and low-GWP refrigerants?
  • What challenges will the new AC and refrigerant technologies face in terms of maintenance, servicing and repair, and how should countries respond to these challenges?
