Identifying and overcoming barriers
By identifying the various barriers which may relate to different stages in the development, marketing or servicing of systems and equipment, or which may relate to different stakeholders within the industry, the survey aims to determine ways and means of overcoming such barriers. As a general guide, one may ask: “If I wanted to have a low-GWP system tomorrow, what is stopping me?” and “If I am determined to use a low-GWP refrigerant, what do I need to do?”
How to take part
Your opinion and experiences are needed! A survey form is now available on the internet and all those involved with refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pumps – particularly from developing countries (A5 countries) – are invited to take part. Please note that it will only be available until 30 July 2010, when the survey ends.
