Debate: Beyond Refrigeration - the climate change challenge

26 Jun 2020

IOR will be hosting a series of live debates based around our recent launch "Beyond Refrigeration - the challenge to achieve net zero heating and cooling for the UK". 

Join us for a series of discussions about the future role of Refrigeration, Air conditioning and Heat pumps as part of the Institute of Refrigeration's UK World Refrigeration Day celebrations.    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.

“These key areas are designed to focus our thinking, our discussions and our activity. We want to engage with our members who have the expertise to make these changes happen, with other technical experts who will support decision making and with policymakers who can put in place legislative frameworks and mechanisms to create lasting and effective change.”  IOR President, Kevin Glass FInstR
