GORD joins Climate Control Conference in Riyadh
The Gulf Organisation for Research & Development (GORD), recently joined the 9th edition of the Climate Control Conference, which took place on October 10 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The conference, renowned for its comprehensive coverage of essential topics in climate control and HVAC systems, attracted industry leaders and professionals from around the world.
During the event, GORD Advisory joined a plenary discussion on HVAC. The discussions covered a broad spectrum of topics, including regulations governing air conditioning, financial modeling for HVAC and large-scale construction projects, integrated project development mechanisms for cost-effective, reliable and environmentally friendly air conditioning, and the importance of addressing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) right from the pre-design stage. Innovations tailored to the unique requirements of linear cities and futuristic objectives were also explored. Apart from the plenary discussion, GORD also presented Energia Suite, a software tool designed to simplify energy modeling for enhanced building performance.
Dr. Yousef Alhorr, GORD’s Founding Chairman, said, “Our participation in the 9th Climate Control Conference underscores our commitment to driving sustainable solutions and revolutionizing the HVAC industry. We believe that by developing innovative technologies like Arcadia and Energia Suites, we can pave the way for a greener, more energy-efficient future in this dynamic part of the world."
The Climate Control Conference offered an extensive exploration of vital themes in the field of climate control and HVAC systems. These ranged from topics like district cooling and standalone chilled water systems to innovative concepts like Cooling as a Service (CaaS). The event provided deep insights into cutting-edge technologies such as inverter-based split AC systems, radiant cooling, evaporative cooling, and fire & life safety measures related to HVAC equipment. Sustainability took center stage as discussions encompassed the significance of geothermal systems and indoor air quality improvements through ventilation, air filtration and purification. Moreover, the conference delved into unconventional AC approaches, Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and environmental stewardship, addressing both direct and indirect emissions.
