shecco, publisher of this website, is conducting a global, industrywide survey of HVAC&R stakeholders to collect predictions of trends for the natural refrigerant and sustainable cooling marketplace in 2021.
Stakeholders will be asked to comment briefly on expected market trends in installations, costs, efficiency, training, challenges, and opportunities as well as the expected impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their organization.
The survey can be accessed here. Deadline for responding is November 23, close of business.
Results of the survey will be published in a Special Issue of Accelerate (#112) that will be available online at accelerate24.news on December 8.
The issue will also feature feedback on specific plans for 2021 from a wide variety of industry stakeholders. Areas covered will include refrigeration, air conditioning, heat pumps, mobile air conditioning, training, policy/standards, digitalization, servitization, HFO concerns, alternative technologies, and Clean Cooling.
“Following the massive disruption caused by the global pandemic and subsequent recession in 2020, we are speaking to stakeholders from around the world to try and get a sense of what to expect next year,” said Marc Chasserot, CEO of shecco. “With feedback from end users and contractors, to industry associations, manufacturers, NGOs, academics, policy makers and more, we will paint a picture of what 2021 could look like.”
