Wednesday 9th September 2020 12:00 to 15:00

Listen to the recordings of these live discussions about the future role of Refrigeration, Air conditioning and Heat pumps as part of the Institute of Refrigeration's Beyond Refrigeration initiative.

Each of the themed discussions starts with a short scene-setting talk. Each topic is then discussed more widely with input from both the panel and the audience.
