According to organizers of the ISH China & CIHE 2016 show, the heat pump industry is booming in China. This is due to the government’s extended policies and efforts on promoting the development and application of renewable energies. Conforming to the government's environmental goals of reducing energy consumption and tackling haze, ISH China & CIHE 2016 has added Hall W4 to its show profile. The additional hall will be dedicated to showcasing the latest heat pump technologies and other related products to meet the market's energy-saving objectives.

The 20th ISH China & CIHE will be held from May 30 – June 1 at the New China International Exhibition Center in Beijing. For the first time, the fair will occupy all eight halls offered at the exhibition center. Covering 95,000 sq meters, the fair expects to welcome over 1,200 exhibitors from across the world.

With many cities in China suffering from severe air pollution and haze, air source heat pumps are proving to be one of the most effective and energy efficient heating technologies offered in the market. As the technology reaches maturity, it is being applied in both macro and micro settings, from districts to shopping centers, hotels, residential complexes, schools, and more.

“At the recent United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21) in Paris, national representatives united and pledged to further reduce emissions in their respective countries and regions,” said Song Zhongkui, secretary general from the Heat Pump Committee of China Energy Conservation Association. “In order to achieve this goal, we have to rely on renewable energy sources and energy-efficient products such as air source heat pumps. With its renowned environmentally-friendly, energy-saving and efficient properties, I am confident that this technology will be a key promotion highlight for the Chinese government.”

Joining the conference for the first time is also the KNX Association. For the 2016 edition, KNX will introduce their international communication standards for HVAC intelligent controls and share their insight on the latest industry trends. Brands will include Afriso, Danfoss, Edison, Double-lin, Elsonic, Gaupu, Galaxywind, Hailin, Hoffer, Linkon, Meibes, Samson, Saswell, Siemens, Tsinghua Tongfang, and others. They are committed to showcasing their latest home comfort and intelligent control products to the professional buyers worldwide.

“Our target visitors are manufacturers of home and building control products who are interested in applying KNX standards to their products," said Heinz Lux, CEO of KNX Association. “We aim to promote our advantages to engineers, designers, installers, planners, architects, national associations, and end-users in the HVAC industry. Messe Frankfurt is a world-renowned exhibition company for organizing professional exhibitions. We have ongoing partnership agreements with Messe Frankfurt building automation fairs across the world and the success shall be continued at ISH China & CIHE 2016.”
