Seminar on Digitalization of Refrigeration and Heat Pump Systems

Digital technologies offer enhanced surveillance, control, design, and decision-making capabilities for both domestic and industrial applications.

Over the past decade, efforts to boost digitalization in the heat pump and refrigeration industries have surged. These innovations have led to improved energy efficiency, effective design practices, and reduced operational costs. We invite you to a seminar where you can explore the latest advancements in digitalizing and modelling refrigeration and heat pump systems.

The presentations are in English.

Participation in the seminar is free. Please note that no-show fee is DKK 300.

Target group

  • Manufacturers of refrigeration and heat pump systems.
  • Manufacturers of components and control systems for refrigeration and heat pump systems.
  • Operators of refrigeration and heat pump systems, including areas such as supermarkets, district heating, building services.
  • Consulting engineers.
  • Researchers working in the field of refrigeration and heat pump technology.
