LG Electronics has launched a research facility in Alaska to improve heating and cooling systems in extremely cold conditions. The facility, called the LG Advanced Cold Climate Heat Pump Laboratory, is a collaboration with the University of Alaska Anchorage and the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The aim of the collaboration, known as the Consortium for Advanced Heat-pump Research, is to address the challenge of heat pumps losing efficiency in cold weather, which is a common problem in cold regions like Alaska. The laboratory will conduct real-life testing in simulated residential settings to evaluate the performance of LG’s HVAC technology in Alaska’s harsh weather conditions. This initiative is part of LG’s broader strategy to double its sales in the global commercial and industrial HVAC market. The demand for efficient and sustainable heating and cooling solutions has increased in North America and Europe due to the shift towards greener living. LG aims to set a new standard for HVAC technology in demanding environments like Alaska. The CEO of LG Electronics, Cho Joo-wan, expressed his commitment to this goal. The chancellor of the University of Alaska Anchorage, Sean Parnell, also highlighted the importance of this joint effort with LG in turning Alaska’s cold climate into a testing ground for HVAC advancements.
