REHVA is The Federation of European Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning associations founded in 1963. We are an umbrella organization that represent over 120,000 HVAC designers, building services engineers, technicians and experts across 27 European Countries.
REHVA provides its members a strong platform for international professional networking, and knowledge exchange pursuing the vision of improving health, comfort, safety and energy efficiency in all buildings and communities. REHVA contributes to technical and professional development, follows EU policy developments and represents the interest of its members at EU level and globally.
In these areas, REHVA has a significant impact on national and international strategic planning and research initiatives, as well as on the associated educational and training programmes.
REHVA is committed to advancing its programs and services for young engineers, through helping them build their professional foundations.
This is achieved through the exchange of technical information, practical experience and research results by REHVA’s working groups, seminars, publications and journal.
REHVA's mission is to develop and disseminate economical, energy efficient, safe and healthy technology for mechanical services of building; to serve its members and the field of building engineering (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) by facilitating knowledge exchange, supporting the development of related EU policies and their national level implementation.
