Debut Clean Energy District Heating Area to feature at next month’s ISH China & CIHE
Asia’s leading trade event for the HVAC industry returns to Beijing next month with a strong focus on eco-friendly products and technologies, including a new Clean Energy District Heating Area. Running from 6 – 8 May, the fair will feature more than 1,300 exhibitors from around the world. Last year, the fair attracted 70,202 trade buyers. A comprehensive fringe programme, including the 5th International HVAC Congress (iHVAC), will also guide the industry on upcoming trends and product developments.
The eco-friendly sourcing options on offer at this year’s ISH China & CIHE are boosted by ongoing initiatives by the Chinese government to spur the development in the HVAC sector, which is driving innovation by local manufacturers. The focus is on producing clean, multi-energy heating systems that are smarter, cleaner and more effective. In particular, there is strong product development of industrial boilers, gas heat pumps, solar-powered heat pumps and electric storage heaters.
As such, the Clean Energy District Heating Area will make its debut this year. Featured in hall W3, this zone will showcase innovative technologies and products related to clean urban heating, with a focus on ‘Internet Plus’, a Chinese term that encompasses the likes of mobile Internet, cloud computing, big data and IoT.
