EPEE presents EU F-Gas and Energy Efficiency rules in Korea

09 / 03 / 2017

EPEE’s Director General Andrea Voigt and Secretariat member Vanessa Chesnot spoke at the Korean Heating, Air-Conditioning, Refrigeration and Fluid Exhibition (HARFKO) that took place in Seoul on 8 and 9 March 2017.

Andrea Voigt participated in the International New Technology and Refrigerant Symposium and spoke during the EPEE side event co-organised with the Korean Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Industry Association (KRAIA). She presented the EU F-Gas Regulation and its impact on the HVACR industry as well as the EPEE Gapometer. This tool aims to identify and then take the necessary measures to ensure the successful implementation of the EU F-gas phase down in Europe.

After an introduction to the EU energy context, Vanessa Chesnot presented the EU Ecodesign and Energy labelling framework, in particular from the viewpoint of non EU manufacturers wanting to import into the EU.

The EPEE Secretariat very much appreciated the fruitful discussion with the Korean HVACR industry and looks forward to similar opportunities in the future.
