An updated edition of the Society book, Proclaiming the Truth, was released at the conference in addition to a composite video highlighting ASHRAE’s history which debuted at the plenary session. The Winter Conference technical program featured more than 300 presentations, with interest surrounding this year’s new track, Big Data and Smart Controls, where session topics included smart sensor technologies, occupant behavior in buildings and cost-based control of supply air temperature.
In 2019, Germany cut its CO2 emissions by around 50 million tonnes – a whopping 6%-reduction from the previous year. According to estimates provided by the Working Group on Energy Balances for the year 2019, CO2 emissions were down 33 per cent from 1990 levels. The energy industry played a key role in achieving this.
Quote of the week: 'The figures are proof that the climate change mitigation policies we adopted in the last few years have been effective. CO2 emissions are falling quickly, coal-fired power is being replaced by renewables. Since 2005, our economy has grown by around 25 % - with CO2 emissions falling by 13 % over the same period. This is an important signal showing that climate change mitigation and competitiveness can go hand in hand'. Peter Altmaier, Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, on the considerable decrease in CO2 emissions registered in the last few years.
