Heating and Cooling - Smart Systems for Recovery, Integration and Energy Saving

25 Jan 2018 10:15 to 13:00

IOR Annual Conference 2018

The IOR is holding its annual conference during the HVACR Show on the 25th January at EXCEL in London. 

Find out what new ways you could improve the efficiency of buildings using system integration.  This half day conference will provide a range of examples of tools, technology and techniques to harness and use heat for cooling.  Speakers will illustrate their arguments with case studies of innovative applications using low grade heat, heat networks, CHP, heat recovery to match heating and cooling demands.  They will also explore the role that IT and design can play in adding value to building services. Come to this event to gain insights into the trends that are shaping the future market for high efficiency heating and cooling.

The Programme

Future framework for heat and decarbonisation in buildings, Ruth Richmond, Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy

  • Overview of UK Government energy strategies

Opportunities for heat recovery with data centres, Robert Tozer, Operational Intelligence

  • Datacentres energy use and efficiency issues
  • Strategies for sustainable cooling of datacentres

High efficiency high temperature heat pump installations, Kenneth Hoffman, GEA Refrigeration

  • The growing use across Europe of heat pumps for industrial applications
  • Optimizing efficiency of heat pumps and use of natural refrigerants
  • Case study in London: supplying hot water for buildings and cooling for London underground

Optimal design and operation of distributed low-carbon energy technologies in commercial buildings, Salvador Acha, Imperial College London

  • What are distributed energy sources and how can they be used to lower the carbon footprint of buildings?
  • What low-carbon technologies can industry use to improving the energy performance of existing buildings?

Heat mapping and heat recovery in the urban environment, Rob Liddiard, LUSTER Project

  • Why matching heat supply and demand is important
  • The importance of distribution networks

The use of smart systems and controls to improve efficiency and reduce energy usage, Miriam Solana, Carel

  • How industry can add value through connectivity and digitalisation of systems
  • Intelligent use of heat pumps based on experience from refrigeration and retail installations in the UK

This half day conference will end begin at 10.15am and end at 1.00pm giving delegates the opportunity to spend the afternoon exploring the HVACR Exhibition.
