ASHRAE has released its technical program for the 2023 ASHRAE Winter Conference, and one of the tracks is dedicated to refrigeration and refrigerants. The other tracks include: Fundamentals and Applications; HVAC&R Systems and Equipment; Grid Resilience and Thermal Storage; Pathways to Zero Energy Emissions and Decarbonization; Multifamily and Residential Buildings; Operations and Maintenance; and Building Simulation and Virtual Design in Construction.

The sessions on refrigeration include:

  • Advances in Refrigerants and Refrigeration;
  • Low-GWP Solutions for Commercial Refrigeration Industry;
  • Review of Refrigerants and Systems for Ultra-Low Temperature Refrigeration Applications;
  • Performance Assessment of High-Efficiency Refrigerated Display Cases with Low-GWP Refrigerants;
  • Commercial Food & Beverage Refrigeration Equipment;
  • Low-GWP Refrigerant for Ultra-Low Temperature Refrigeration;
  • Comparative Study of Environmental Impact of Supermarket Refrigeration Systems Using Low-GWP Refrigerants; and
  • Advanced Architectures for Commercial Refrigeration Systems using Low Global Warming Potential Refrigerants

The Conference will be held February 4-8, 2023 in Atlanta, Georgia at the Omni Hotel at CNN Center. The event consists of over 100 technical sessions, tours, social experiences, and industry-specific committee meetings.

“The conference will focus on addressing the critical challenges we all face in rapidly evolving industry and policy landscapes. It will feature papers and programs that are pertinent to the future of buildings and how they interact with people and the environment,” said Christine Reinders-Caron, chair of the committee for the conference. “Attendees will learn about the latest developments in building design and construction, from virtual design and simulation, to decarbonization and grid resilience.”
