47th INTERNATIONAL HVAC & R CONGRESS AND EXHIBITION AND THE 7th EXHIBITION OF SOFTWARE, INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES, GREEN PROGRAMS, NETWORKS AND SMART GRIDS

47th  INTERNATIONAL HVAC & R CONGRESS AND EXHIBITION AND THE 7th EXHIBITION OF SOFTWARE, INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES, GREEN PROGRAMS, NETWORKS AND SMART GRIDS

Organizer: Society for HVAC of Serbian Union of Mechanical & Electrical Engineers & Technicians (SMEITS), Kneza Miloša 7a/II, 11000 Beograd, Phone 381 11 323 00 41, Phone/fax 381 11 3231 372 ● www.smeits.rswww.kgh-drustvo.rs ● e-mail: office@kgh-hvac.rs

Sava Centar, Belgrade, 30th November – 2. December 2016.

The PROGRAM dedicated to SOFTWARE, INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES AND GREEN PROGRAMS AND NETWORKS was successfully organized for the first time in 2010 and, therefore, the Organizer decided to include this new program as an integral part of the Congress and its accompanying exhibition, since the role of software and IT-s in all the fields of professional engineering and scientific work is irreplaceable today. Without software and IT, the approach to energy optimization, the use of renewable energy sources – sources of the permanent dynamics of availability, will not be possible.

The Invitation To Participate In The Green Exhibition

is addressed to professionals dealing with HVAC & R, building construction and building services (technical systems), including electricity supply, water supply and sewage, energy efficiency management, renewable energy sources, automation systems, structural dynamics, fire protection and fire fighting…resilience,…

THE ROLE OF GREEN PROGRAMS AND NETWORKS may be crucial in the transfer of information and education of investors and users, i.e. in recognizing and identification of exemplary and valuable designs and solutions, thus contributing to wide application of energy efficient, environmentally clean and sustainable HVAC & R systems – integrally green buildings. And, furthermore, their role is to recognize, identify and promote valuable projects that can be set as an example. This section of the exhibition will gather designers, constructors, manufacturers, scientists, company representatives – software and IT creators and green program and network proponents, who will meet with potential future activists of the Programs-Networks, NGOs and volunteers, whose precious commitment to the common good and welfare of others – of all today’s and future generations in the whole world – is increasingly important and respect worthy.

Smart Grids For Zero CO2 Emission And Zero Energy Settlements And Cities

Integrated design and construction of sustainable healthy buildings and energy refurbishment of the existing urban building sector in order to achieve sustainability and adaptability of urban systems to climate change will be the main and integral topic of the congress. Since the integrated approach implies that from the very first moment of the architectural-conceptual consideration, and approach to the design, an essentially close communication is established between urban planners and architects, civil engineers, HVAC & R engineers and other mechanical engineers, electrical and electronics engineers, environmentalists, ICT professionals and others, this year’s HVAC & R CONGRESS IS INVITING ALL THE PROFESSIONS OF BUILDING CONSTRUCTION ENGINEERING AND BUILDING AND MUNICIPAL SERVICES to make a huge step forward, in an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary dialogue, in their approach to realize a DREAM – CONSTRUCTION OF SUSTAINABLE HEALTHY BUILDINGS AND ZERO CO2 EMISSION SETTLEMENTS AND CITIES.

In order to archive the aim of this Congress, i.e. to spread knowledge, technology and techniques that enable us to construct the Zero CO2 emission settlements and cities, in addition to the presentation of the most recent achievements in the field of HVAC & R and energy supply systems, especially those using renewable energy sources, as well as all the aspects of the integrated design of new and re-design of the energy refurbishment of the existing buildings, it is necessary to obtain harmonization of the balances of energy flows in buildings (energy consumers, Zero energy buildings and Energy+ buildings) and electricity distribution grid and utilities power supply systems.

Methods, technologies and techniques of integrated design, construction, audit, testing, monitoring and smart operation of energy efficient sustainable healthy buildings and energy refurbishment of the existing urban building sector for the purpose of attaining sustainability, security and adaptability of urban systems to climate change and resilience to weather extremes as well as to exposures to the risks of terrorism, political extremes, uncontrolled migrations and immigrations – these will be the main topics of this year’s congress and exhibition.

BEYOND THE VISION – Monitoring – balancing energy flows and energy efficiency of solar houses of Series of EU Solar Decathlons held in Madrid and Paris showed that all 20 houses archived impressive energy balance (generating 2 – 4 times more electricity than using and sending surplus to the GRID) connected in the Schneider’s SMART GRID. Similar results are obtained by the longest series of Solar Decathlons in US and the one in 2013 organized in China.

IBPSA-Danube at the International HVAC Congress’s Green Exhibitions in Belgrade

The organizer of the Belgrade’s HVAC&R Congresses (organizer – Society for Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning of the Union of Mechanical and Electrical Engineers and Technicians of Serbia, www.smeits.rs, www.kgh-hvac.org, office@smeits.rs), since its first years of organization was accompanied with the exhibitions of products, new technologies, equipment and successful practice as an inherent part of the congress. This was always an opportunity for all participants to be at the same time and same place – meeting architects, designers, producers, scientists, representatives of companies – all dedicated to the HVAC and Buildings systems advancement.

New IT – Green exhibition part – Exhibition of Software, Information Technology and Green Programs and Networks as a special segment of the exhibition devoted to software has been for the first time organized within the 41st HVAC Congress in 2010. It was displayed, with an intention to be an integral part of the Congress and the accompanying exhibition permanently, due to the fact that the role of software and IT has become irreplaceable in all scientific and professional fields of HVAC&R. Well positioned guide marks made it easy for the congress attendees to find a well- organized area of this “Green IT Exhibition”. Its stand layout were created in a very dexterous and imaginative manner, leaving the central part open for communication, while the remaining part was formed as a small sitting area intended for program demonstrations, consultations and meetings.

The idea for this new exhibition program was born in October 2010, during the first conference on Building Performance Simulation in Belgrade, which had been held on the occasion of the foundation of the Danube Regional Chapter of the IBPSA – Danube under the auspices of SMEITS, the Society for Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning. IBPSA – Danube was the main exhibitor, and was a huge success, thus confirming that software and IT, along with green programs and networks and that their diligent creators, deserve special attention and special program within the HVCA&R congress. The role of Green Programs and Networks became increasingly important and it may become a key factor in information transfer and education of investors and users, i.e. in the recognition and distinction of exemplary valuable solutions, thus contributing to spreading applications of HVCA&R energy efficient, environmentally clean and sustainable systems – „Sustainable Green Buildings”.

The HVAC&R congress was the first meeting of the newly established IBPSA Danube with the wide audience of their colleagues, mechanical engineers. The reactions during that meeting were positive. Four conference days passed in alternating discussions at the IBPSA stand. Satisfaction was mutual and IBPSA-Danube participated also at the Second (2011) and third (2012) Exhibition of Software, Information Technology and Green Programs and Networks. In addition to the presentation of the Association program and activities, at all three meetings, the discussions on cooperation between mechanical engineers and architects were of special importance. These discussions resulted in positive energy and elimination of stereotypes. The events ended in exchanging cooperation offers and desire to stay in touch in order to continue discussions and knowledge exchange. Numerous contacts were established, and as a result the IBPSA – Danube admitted more than 100 new members. At the Exhibition in 2011 IBPSA-Danube prepared and distributed CD-s with all earlier IBPSA Conferences papers (CD production was the donation of Energoprojekt Entel company., Belgrade, which became the first Corporate member of the IBPSA-Danube.

In 2012 at the HVAC&R Green Exhibition IBPSA_Danube was for the third time present, and the Chamber of Commerce from Belrade for the first time – celebrating at the exhibition closure great success. Thus, the Green Exhibition 2012 was marked as the year with starting Green Exhibition’s commercialization. The beginning of commercialization was marked by the appearance of one of the leading software companies, “Bentley”, whose presentation and distribution of advertising publications was especially greeted by students and young engineers.
