Arif Hussain, National Product Manager at Al Salem Johnson Controls will talk on the theme of energy efficiency improvements in cooling technology at the HVAC R Expo Saudi. We listened to his thoughts on the subject:

1. What is the Saudi government doing to help push forward the industry?

In view of 2030 initiative, Saudi Government enacted SASO regulations 2663 & 2874 which improve the efficiency level of all Air conditioning equipment.  They have also introduced District cooling framework for new developments exceeding 15,000 tons. More recently, the Saudi building efficiency code was revised & implemented. In addition, Saudi government is also encouraging efficiency improvements in existing buildings through registered ESCO companies.  

2. Who are the right people to attend your talk?

The general pubic who are interested in Chiller trends are welcome, I also invite HVAC students, Designers, Contractors, Consultants, Facility Managers & Owners representatives to come along and listen.
