NürnbergMesse has issued a call for nominations for the 2020 Chillventa Award, honoring energy efficient HVAC&R technology. The deadline for nominations is June 26, and the awards will be handed out during the Chillventa exhibition in Nürnberg, Germany, from October 13 to 15, 2020.
The awards are given out in the following categories: commercial refrigeration, industrial refrigeration, air conditioning and ventilation systems, and heat pumps.
Nominations must consist of completed projects that can be considered “outstanding” examples of energy efficient and environmentally friendly refrigeration, air conditioning or heat pump technology.
When deciding on the winners, the awards jury will also consider team work between the project stakeholders, and their collaborative design and planning process. Use of digital tools for design and operation of the system will also be assessed, according to a press release from Chillventa.
Any new (or rebuilt) refrigeration, air conditioning or heat pump system realized in Europe is eligible to enter. The systems must be no more than two years old, and the entrants themselves must be responsible for realizing the project.
Entrants can be clients/operators, designers/planners and system engineers, as individuals or in consortiums.
Manufacturers of components and systems from industrial or commercial enterprises are not eligible, but entrants may be supported by industrial and commercial enterprises.
The awards are presented by NürnbergMesse in cooperation with German publisher, Bauverlag.
