Many solutions exist within the built environment connected to heating and cooling to support low emission and zero-carbon strategies. They include smart thermostats, building automation systems, dynamic and high-performance glass, green and cool roofs, district heating, high-efficiency heat pumps, building retrofitting and net-zero buildings.
Within refrigeration fluorinated gases have a potent greenhouse effect. In addition to managing leaks and disposal of synthetic refrigerants the technology exists now to replace these powerful greenhouse gases with natural refrigerant alternatives. Not only do these solutions support our planet, they have been proven to also provide lower costs and better performance.
