The Role of VRF Technology in Zero Carbon Buildings

DURATION: 1 hour

Variable refrigerant flow (VRF) technology is not new, but it may seem that way in North America. Over the past 20 years, greening hydro grids, natural gas abundance and higher density living have lulled us into marginal higher efficiencies which have become the new norm. Yet our planet continues to warm year by year. VRF technology provides an efficient way to reduce carbon by electrifying heating. Now is the time that we must dig deeper to learn and apply critical technologies in order to build the structures that will house us for the next 50 years and beyond. Zero carbon buildings are not only possible; they are practical, affordable and necessary. VRF technology is proven around the world and is an important tool in our quest for zero carbon that cannot be ignored in Canada any longer.

Participants of this course will learn about what VRF technology is and how it can be used, its benefits and limitations, measurement and standards, as well as how it can help us reach our carbon-reduction goals through the sharing of case studies.

This course is delivered by Suzanne Wiltshire, Business Developer, at Mitsubishi Electric Sales Canada Inc.
