The landscape in Ras Al Khaimah and the broader Northern Emirates is predominantly dotted by low-risestructures, a feature that for some time has drawn the attention of manufacturers and suppliers of variable refrigerant flow (VRF) equipment. Examples abound of villa projects elsewhere in the UAE benefitting from VRF technology and, what’s more, living up to the promise of optimising capex and of greater energy efficiency compared to other cooling approaches in horizontal projects.

In recent months, Ras Al Khaimah has been the cynosure of much attention related to energy efficiency. In late January, the emirate unveiled its own Green Building regulation, Barjeel, as part of a grand scheme to achieve 30% energy savings, 20% water savings and 20% share from renewable energy by the year 2040, under the RAK Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Strategy. Prior, the emirate began on the road to retrofitting existing buildings, again with the objective of reducing energy consumption and of optimising the use of water.

These development bode well for the VRF industry and, hence, the reason for choosing Ras Al Khaimah as the venue for the 7th edition of the Middle East Variable Refrigerant Flow Conference.
