To set the framework of the conference, Advansor A/S and Danfoss, two Danish companies operating on the global market, introduces you to the Danish approach towards CO2 cooling and the supermarkets' shift in their choice of refrigerant - from R404A to CO2. You will also hear the global market accelerator, Shecco, guide you through the current global trends for natural refrigerants.

Regulation through standardized regulation help to create transparency on the market and ensure a sustainable level of product quality. Get a general introduction and meet Eurovent Association who will give an insight into their work. 

The conference also introduces you to new initiatives within the field in terms of two ongoing R&D projects, i.e. IEA HPP Annex 44 and Super supermarkets, as well as interesting cases, e.g. Lidl - Europe's greenest supermarket. Moreover, you will learn about the potential of monitoring refrigeration plants and how the correct temperatures can result in large savings and less food waste. 

On day 2, you will have the opportunity to participate in one of two group sessions focusing on the challenges for producers, suppliers and installers as well as end users, respectively.

The conference is primarily targeted at suppliers of cooling systems, installers, and supermarkets, i.e. representatives from both the purchasing department, energy management, and daily operations.
