HVACTech Qatar 2015 Conference
Since Qatar’s successful bid to host the 2022 World Cup was announced, much of the dialogue has centred on how the GCC super-power would solve the issue of its sweltering temperatures during the tournament.
Now with the world’s most revered football competition set to move to winter, talk of passive cooling techniques and air-conditioned stadiums seem to have been put on ice, however the discussion around Qatar’s ventilation and air conditioning still remains a hot topic.
Qatar, at present, is the second highest electricity consumer among Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and has the highest energy usage (per capita) in the world.
Qatar’s soaring building electricity usage – at times – can account for as much as 40% of the country’s energy consumption, however more shockingly, up to 80% of a building’s electricity output is currently used to provide air conditioning.
Is no surprise that, in a country where temperature can surpass 41C (105.8F), staying cool is of chief importance, however the environmental impact cannot be ignored.
The Qatari government is promoting initiatives and strategies to improve energy efficiency, with the several awareness programs launched over the past 12 months, however there is much work for the HVAC and District Cooling industry to optimise the way in which Qatar is cooled.
Return of the HVAC
HVACTech Qatar2015 is a specialised forum for the local Qatari, Gulf and regional market to address key opportunities and challenges in the HVAC and cooling industries and showcase the latest technological solutions. After a very successful first year that brought together leading Contractors, MEP Managers, Sustainability Managers, Utility Providers, District Cooling Companies, Architects and Building Specialists from across Qatar’s HVAC industry, we are pleased to return with an exciting second edition, which will address the key issues affecting the country’s Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Ventilation market.
The forum, taking place at the QNCC alongside Project Qatar, will feature key speakers from ASHRAE, MZ & Partners, KEO, Marafeq, GHD, Drake & Scull and many more.
HVACTech 2015 will see the launch of ACM’s unique Interface+conferenceformat. Specifically tailored to the Middle East market, the Interface+ format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office, while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience.
“We trialled this new event structure which maximised networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment” explains Conference Director, Niall Watson.
