freescoo in Marrakech

In the framework of an international bilateral cooperation between the Agence Marocaine pour l’Efficacité Energétique (AMEE) and the Italian Ministry for Environment, Land and Sea (IMELS), a freescoo Air Handling Unit was installed at the library of AMEE (previously known as ADEREE) in Marrakech in October 2016. The project is managed by the Italian University Politecnico di Milano and has been carried out with the collaboration of the company Pleion which delivered the solar evacuated tube collectors.

The freescoo unit is going to be installed next week, exactly in time for the upcoming COP22 in Marrakech. AMEE is one of the supporter of this global event, and this is surely an important opportunity of visibility for freescoo and Solarinvent.

The Convention stipulates,”Parties should protect the climate system for the benefit of present and future generations on the basis of equity and in accordance with their common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities.”

During the COP, member States, who have common but differentiated responsibilities, strive to reach agreements on reducing greenhouse gas emissions caused by human activity, assess the evolution of their commitments and review the implementation of the Framework Convention and other legal instruments that the COP adopts. Typically a series of negotiating sessions are carried out beforehand in order to optimize the agenda and discussions.

As of today there are 197 Parties to the Convention (196 States and the European Union).
