After the resounding success of Acrex India 2017, organised by the Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE), the society is gearing up to host the 19th essay of the exhibition that is slated to take place at the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC), Bengaluru between February 22 and 24, 2018.

Last year, people from across the globe attended the symposium and witnessed one of the largest displays of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) products offered by national and international exhibitors.

This edition of Acrex India promises to venture into exciting themes like sustainability, green buildings, eco-friendly innovations and carbon neutrality, while expecting over 600 exhibitors and the participation of major global players across 30 countries.

One of the highlights for the 2018 edition will be ISHRAE’s collaboration with United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) to discuss the technological developments in zero ozone-depleting substances (ODS) and low global warming potential (GWP) refrigeration and air condition (RAC) technologies, as well as the regulatory and policy measures needed to scale up their adoption, thereby maximising ozone, climate and energy efficiency benefits.

At Acrex 2018, UNEP will be hosting an exclusive Ozone Pavilion, which will serve as a platform for organisations to come and showcase their respective Ozone2 climate-friendly technologies and products.

The Ozone Pavilion will serve as a testimony to efforts shown towards building ozone and climate-friendly refrigerant technologies or systems.

Additionally, in line with the Acrex India vision of becoming the largest network and the most dynamic platform for the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R) and the building construction industry, ISHRAE has advocated the importance of natural resources, recycling and reusing materials alongside employing energy-efficient equipment is the key to organic sustenance.

Laying importance on the efficient use of resources such as energy and water, among others, will aid in protecting occupant’s health and improving quality of life.

Sharing his views, Nirmal Ram, chairman, Acrex India 2018 and ISHRAE presidential member, said, “ISHRAE is committed to address contemporary issues and deliver innovative solutions through Acrex India every year, and this year, we are excited about the unique product offerings that we will be introducing.”

“The 2018 edition of Acrex will be all the more memorable because of ISHRAE’s collaboration United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), one of the leading organisations globally for environmental activities,” he added.

“Acrex India is a flagship event of ISHRAE, and has always played an essential role in bringing the industry together while working closely with key brands and partners. We, at Acrex, believe in organic development and sustainable living, which runs parallel with the world we live in, and this year, we will continue to strengthen our mission,” Ram said.

Acrex India’s main focus revolves around the fact that the Indian consumer market is ever-growing and so is its infrastructure. The HVAC&R industry is benefiting from this growth, thereby making India a consumer market to be reckoned with and a destination that attracts many international companies to come and sell their products.

“UN Environment is pleased to co-organise the Ozone to Climate Technology Roadshow and Industry Dialogue at Acrex India 2018. This is the result of a decade-long successful partnership between the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and UN Environment,” said Shamila Nair-Bedouelle, head, OzonAction - Montreal Protocol.

“This can be easily demonstrated by many similar events as well as other products jointly developed and offered to best serve the needs of developing economies in complying with the Montreal Protocol and advancing alternative refrigeration and air conditioning technologies and practices,” she added.

“The joint work plan for 2017-2018 of our two organisations is structured around the theme, Working beyond High-GWP Refrigerants, to reflect international movement to reduce dependency on high-GWP technologies, especially in light of the adoption of the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol,” Nair said.

“Cooperation with ISHRAE is an example of how the ASHRAE-UN Environment cooperation is shaping to actively engage with regional and national associations, ensuring the global messages and programmes respond to the specific needs of developing economies” she added.

The exhibition will witness a host of both national and international visitors and be the largest platform for networking for the construction industry.

Acrex India is also responsible for offering its key stakeholders an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the latest technologies in the field.

The previous year’s theme, of Rising India: Enterprising and Cool, was linked both to the rapidly-growing economy of India as well as the welcoming nature of its citizens.

The next year’s theme will commit to garnering even more attention and positively impacting the society that we live in with dedicated pavilions on refrigeration and cold chain and building automation.

“We’re pleased to partner with Acrex India again this year. This partnership is an important part of the Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute’s (AHRI) continued commitment to supporting the HVACR and water heating industry around the globe,” said Stephen Yurek, president and chief executive officer, AHRI.

“As we work toward standards harmonisation and certification as a path to regulatory compliance, Acrex is a critical partner that attracts thousands of industry leaders each year,” he added.

As Acrex India 2018 gears up to be a truly international show, ISHRAE, as an industry body, continues to protect the environment, facilitate energy conservation and improve the impact of HVAC&R on the marine, food and refrigeration, indoor and outdoor air quality management, medical and the cold chain industry.

This is in line with the larger goal of promoting energy efficiency, sustainability and achieving advanced functional and aesthetical value in the HVAC&R industry, that is going to be addressed though ACREX 2018.
