Specialist speakers from industry and government shared the latest news on energy efficiency for HVAC and refrigeration systems, upcoming changes in legislation and energy reduction solutions. The morning was split into sessions on legislation and policy as well as hands-on business cases to explore the challenges and strategies employed when completing energy saving projects.

Presentations were held by professionals such as Evalin Ling, Sustainability Leader at AG Coombs, on what sustainability means in the HVAC industry. Dave Redden, Principal at Refrigeration Innovations, shared success stories on supermarket refrigeration upgrades and Sumit Oberoi, Executive Director at AMCA, formally introduced the Climate Control Centre of Excellence. Thomas Heine, ebm-Papst A&NZ Market Manager, shared updates on the VEET scheme, while Scott Bokscay, CEO at Sustainable Melbourne Fund, gave an overview of the 1200 Buildings Project.

The GreenDay Concept
The GreenDay is an international campaign of all global ebm-papst subsidiaries. Around 11,000 employees do their part for a greener future and demonstrate their everyday contributions to the environment. It takes place on World Environment Day (5 June). It was started in 2012 because environmental awareness in every day life is just as important to ebm-papst as the energy efficiency of their products, processes and production.

2016 marks the fifth year of the worldwide ebm-papst GreenDay, and the second instalment of an event that is open to HVAC&R industry professionals in Australia. The audience consisted of consultants, contractors, small business owners, HVAC professionals and TAFE teachers and students.

Next Greenday: Sydney
The next GreenDay is scheduled to take place in Sydney in August. Please contact Caroline Bommes if you are interested in speaking.
