NASRC New York Low-GWP Refrigerants Workshop

Friday, September 27th
8:30AM - 4:30PM, Happy Hour to Follow
Albany, NY

New York is one of a growing number of states who have committed to phase down Hydrofluorocarbon refrigerants (HFCs) as part of their larger climate goals. New regulations will impact supermarkets and grocery stores as early as 2020. What regulations will be put in place next? What are the benefits and challenges of low-GWP refrigerant options? Will there be negative energy implications?  

This free, full-day workshop seeks to answer these questions and help supermarket stakeholders prepare for future refrigerant regulations. Attendees will hear from expert presenters who will provide a comprehensive overview of:

  • Low-GWP refrigerant solutions;

  • The latest technology innovations; and

  • Strategies to optimize energy efficiency.

See workshop flyer.

NASRC End-User Roundtable Call: Evaluating Lifecycle Costs

Wednesday, April 24th
12:00pm - 1:00pm PDT (3:00pm - 4:00pm EST)

Moderated by Keilly Witman


The NASRC End-User Roundtable meeting is an opportunity for NASRC’s End-User Members to informally discuss natural refrigerants and share challenges, solutions, and best practices with peers.

The next meeting will focus on evaluating lifecycle costs of natural refrigerant systems. How do you evaluate total lifecycle costs and what are you finding? Do you save money on piping or refrigerants? Is total cost influenced by lack of EPA record keeping? Join us for a discussion around these questions and more!


NOTE: Participation is only open to End-User Members.
RSVP is required to receive conference call details.
