Finland to present an alternative to air conditioners for apartments at the EXPO

4 May

The largest energy company in Finland suggests replacing air conditioners in the apartments for central cooling. The developers believe that the technology, which is planned to be shown at the world specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017, will allow to seriously save on electricity consumption, the "Khabar 24" TV channel reports. Know-how will significantly reduce the level of carbon dioxide emissions. The demand for central cooling is growing every year in Finland.

"How does traditional cooling in buildings work? The external cold air is drawn into the room, while the hot air is blown into the atmosphere. Therefore, conditioning, in fact, is the production of heat energy for nothing. It turns out that hot air heats everything outside the window while it could somehow be used. Therefore we combined heating with cooling", - the director of development of the company Helen Yuoni Kivirinne said.

To maintain microclimate in the room constant special sensors are required. Instruments for controlling physical parameters will tell you when to warm up the air and when to cool. The enterprise's products are also used in meteorology, hydrology and even forecasting of natural phenomena. New technologies annually save millions of euros to local companies. Special forecasting systems can prevent even environmental disasters.

"In order to less burden the environment and to be more effective we need a wide range of components. This is not only the introduction of innovations and green technologies, it's an effective education system, legal system and development of various public institutions", - the general commissioner of Finland pavilion at the EXPO 2017 Severi Kanyalya told.

Let us remind that an extensive delegation of representatives of the KFEIG consortium will take part in the work of the Finnish pavilion of the international exhibition Astana EXPO 2017. It includes the four largest technical universities in Finland - JAMK University of Applied Sciences, HAMK University of Applied Sciences, Tampere Adult Education Center and Lahti University of Applied Sciences.

In addition, in the period from July 18 to August 11, 2017 Joulupukki - the Finnish Santa Claus - will come to Astana from Lapland for the exhibition. Despite the fact that traditionally the fairy-tale character usually leaves his home only on Christmas holidays, Finnish Santa Claus decided to make an exception for the guests of Astana EXPO 2017. Also the Finns decided to reproduce the Northern Lights effect in their pavilion and demonstrate their advanced developments in the field agrotechnology.

After the exhibition, Finland will take part in the creation of a park of IT startups based on the facilities of EXPO 2017.

The sketches of the Finnish exhibition pavilion were earlier published on the internet.

Earlier it became known that the tickets for EXPO 2017 as a prize in a lottery in Finland in order to warm up the interest in their technologies to be shown in Astana. The drawing of tickets for the opening day of the exhibition takes place on the page of the Finnish pavilion in the social network Facebook.
