Cold Climate HVAC 2018
Cold Climate HVAC 2018
The 9th international Cold Climate HVAC 2018 conference held in the city of Kiruna, Sweden, from March 12 to 15. The conference series was initiated by the Scandinavian Federation of Heating, Ventilation, and Sanitary Engineering Associations (SCANVAC) in 1994 and has been held every third year in a northern circumpolar community. This was the first time the conference was held in Sweden and was the most northern Cold Climate HVAC conference ever.
The numerous connections made during the conference and tour between researchers from academy, practitioners, and developers from industry help in bringing improvements to the future sustainability of both new and renovated northern buildings.
