Marketing Text REAL Skills-Europe was a two-year project for the refrigeration air conditioning and heat pump sector that has built on the achievements of the UK programme REAL Zero to achieve reductions in refrigerant leakage through improved awareness, education and training. The project developed a range of guidance notes, carbon emissions and refrigerant management tools, which are available in 7 languages as free downloads from the project website to anyone with a professional interest. The training course is based on e-learning and online assessment and provides opportunities for accreditation as a refrigerant leakage reduction advisor.
Description The website includes information and downloads in the 7 partner languages (English, French, German, Dutch, Estonian, Greek, Polish), as well as links to registration for the e-learning portal. The guidance notes and software tools can be downloaded from the REAL Skills Europe Toolbox page (registration with an e-mail address is required).
Target group The refrigeration air conditioning and heat pump (RACHP) sector
Result See decription above
Area of application The guidance notes are aimed at all stakeholders in the RACHP sector including system specifiers, designers, installers, service and maintenance personnel and companies, operators and end users. They provide useful and practical information and guidance on refrigerant containment and complement the e-learning material. The REAL Skills Europe Calculator is an Excel based software tool that can be used as an electronic FGas log (to satisfy the requirements of the FGas Regulations for maintaining records) and to estimate the environmental and financial impact of refrigerant leakage (CO2 equivalent emissions and costs).
