The European Ventilation Industry Association (EVIA) is delighted to invite you to register interest in an upcoming workshop organised by the association on connectivity issues.
Connectivity solutions are increasingly being integrated into building appliances by manufacturers in the HVACR sector. With an increase in prevalence naturally comes an increase in regulatory interest and the EU has duly responded with the inclusion of the Smart Readiness Indicator in the revised Energy Performance in Buildings Directive (EPBD), among other initiatives.
This workshop will be dedicated to discussing the regulatory, standardisation and policy challenges facing HVACR manufacturers in embracing the emerging connectivity marketplace. The workshop will feature insight from ICT standardisation experts, EU decision-makers and industry partners, the agenda can be found below.
