The 43rd HVAC&R Congress and Exhibition

43. Kongres KGHThis year’s, the 43rd international congress is dedicated to the current topics from the broad HVAC&R field, primarily focusing on buildings as main energy consumers and the use of renewable sources and the most up-to-date products used in HVAC&R systems.

The Organizer’s special wish is to promote the exchange of information on new building materials that affect the building energy demands as well as to present the most up-to-date building structures and their architectural designs in compliance with thermal performance, which are the preconditions for energy efficient behaviour of buildings.

The topics include refrigerants which substitute conventional ones that are being phased out due to their environmental impact. The district heating and cooling systems remain the inevitable topic of this gathering of HVAC&R professionals.

The second congress day is dedicated to the student program, which has already become traditional and is intended for students and the youngest generation of those who select to engage in HVAC&R profession as well as in other specialties directly associated with HVAC&R systems in buildings. The topics of student papers include the general HVAC&R topics as well as the topics suggested in this announcement. Among the papers to be presented in the congress, the best ones will be selected to be published in the journal and to be presented at international student conferences and meetings.

The 43rd International Congress and Exhibiton


  • General problems in achieving energy efficiency of HVAC&R systems in buildings
  • The most up-to-date technologies in civil engineering for energy demands in public and residential buildings
  • The existing buildings and their reconstruction (retrofit) for the purpose of improving their energy efficiency and the use of renewables
  • The latest energy policy at the global level and in Serbia; green buildings, examples from practice
  • Refrigeration units and systems. Implementation of the conclusions from the Montreal and the Kyoto Protocols
  • Manufacture of heat pumps and HVAC&R equipment: technological development in this industry sector
  • District heating and cooling systems; distribution network, losses, consumption calculation, energy consumption payment
  • Cogeneration and trigeneration with hybridisation using RES
  • Air-conditioning, automatic control, intelligent buildings
  • Newest façades from the aspect of energy efficiency
  • HVAC&R systems in museums and legally preserved historic and important buildings
  • Examples of successful practise


The aim of the exhibition is to present and inform the professional community on new products used in buildings and building energy supply.

As an integral part of the congress, this time the exhibition will also be focused on the products manufactured by using new technologies, new elements in the field of HVAC&R systems and plants and successful practice. It is an opportunity for designers, constructors, manufacturers, scientists and company representatives, all those with the same task, to meet one another at the same time and at the same place.

One segment of the exhibition is dedicated to software, information technologies and green programmes and networks, which arouse great interest of visitors due to the irreplaceable role of software and information technologies in all domains of HVAC&R. Like in previous years, the stands will be installed on the ground floor, next to the congress hall, and on the gallery above the hall in the Sava Centre.
