The Heat Exchange Institute has formed the new HEI air-cooled condenser section. It became part of HEI in 2009 and is currently working on the development of an air-cooled condenser standard.

The standard will aim to address such subjects as design considerations for air-cooled condensers, condenser performance and operation, instrumentation and control, service connections, and venting equipment, as well as other technical information on air-cooled condensers. The section anticipates releasing the new standard sometime in late 2010.
