Jumbo and TORO WATT to engage with leading industry experts on integration of smart technologies in retrofitting
19 March 2017, Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Jumbo Engineering, a business unit of Jumbo Group, along with TORO Watt – a leading Canadian heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) technology company, have announced that they will participate in the 3rd annual RetrofitTech 2017 where they will discuss methods to mitigate the cost of indoor air quality systems in the UAE.
The conference will take place on 20 and 21 March at The Meydan Hotel, Dubai. The objective of the conference is to identify project, opportunities, strategies and latest technologies that enable energy and water efficiency across the UAE.
Currently, the main issue faced by brands is the cost of implementing fresh air-handling units in buildings due to high installation and operating costs. Several facilities choose to switch off their fresh air-handling systems despite having the infrastructure in place due to soaring expenses.
Durgesh Verma, Manager – Product & Services at Jumbo Engineering, and Darshi Dhaliwal, CTO at Toro WATT, will be engaging with leading industry experts to discuss the integration of smart technologies in the Retrofitting Project on 20 March at 3:45pm to 4:15pm.
In their session, Verma and Dhaliwal will examine different methods to improve indoor air quality. The discussion will focus on the importance of fresh air as well as the guidelines put forward by the UAE government and green building regulators to ensure a healthy and safe level of indoor air.
“The need for energy efficient heat recovery in the UAE is ever- growing. Jumbo is committed to empowering our partners in the industry to adopt and promote sustainable practices at affordable prices. With sustainability being a key theme for UAE Expo 2020, we are committed to supporting the industry to adopt initiatives that will facilitate energy and water efficiency savings and are proud to participate in RetrofitTech 2017 alongside our partners TORO WATT,” said Durgesh Verma, Manager – Product & Services at Jumbo Engineering.
The conference will also highlight the latest project opportunities for retrofitting government buildings, as well as the buildings within the commercial, retail, hospitality, healthcare, education and industrial sectors, and examine the best practice retrofitting strategies. The event will also discuss future financing models, regulative frameworks and requirements as well as showcase the latest technologies and products for use in retrofitting to achieve energy savings and a healthy Return on Investment (ROI).
