Beyond Refrigeration - the challenge of net zero

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

Join us for a series of 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 our themed discussions will start with a short scene setting talk, then we will open the microphones for the topic to be discussed more widely. Read our discussion paper at for background on this initiative

  • 12.00pm - 12.45pm "Beyond Refrigeration" Why we want to address the challenge of achieving net-zero heating and cooling in the UK
  • 13.00pm - 13.45pm "Using Energy Intelligently" We need reliable, renewable and cheap energy when we need it. How can the refrigeration sector engage with energy providers and storage technologies?
  • 14.00pm - 14.45pm "Reducing the need for Mechanical Cooling" Passive cooling, natural ventilation – alternative technologies will have a critical part to play in reducing carbon emissions from cooling processes. What should the IOR's role be in promoting best available technology?

We are inviting members to share their views through questions, comments, polls and debate.
