By Andrew Gaved
Concern is swirling around Europe regarding the F-Gas Regulation, particularly what the HFC phasedown might do to supply and demand and pricing. Having talked to leading policy experts, end-users and suppliers, the consensus is this: The industry must act sooner rather than later, or face the consequences in terms of high prices and refrigerant shortages. Those in the U.S. should pay attention as these issues will inevitably be repeated when phasing down HFCs in North America.

Contracting Business

Net-zero buildings seen as manageable targets
REMI Network
Green standards among commercial real estate developers have become more widely accepted.

While benchmarks such as LEED are provable targets, net-zero buildings — buildings that produce the same amount of energy as they consume in a year — have yet to gain momentum in the industry, mainly due to their perceived cost.
