UK: The Institute of Refrigeration (IoR) has now released the provisional programme for its Annual Conference – The Journey to Net Zero Heating and Cooling – Beyond Refrigeration 2021.
Delegates for the event, which takes place online on 21 and 22 April 2021, are promised a varied programme to include case studies demonstrating how the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump sector is responding to the challenge of net zero heating and cooling.
The conference aims to bring together experts with the knowledge, understanding and reach to help the UK address the challenge of achieving net zero heating and cooling. In addition to a wide range of presentations, there will be keynote speeches from UNEP and the IIR, as well as a variety of workshops and short courses.
It will also provide the opportunity to publish a set of technical case study papers that will show technical and non-technical businesses how they can move from current business as usual practices to a more sustainable way of operation, measuring their progress towards net zero.
Many themes will feature during the event including balancing the heating and cooling demand, using energy intelligently, making use of best available technology, reducing the need for mechanical cooling.
The fee for the two-day event is £60.00 per person and £12.00 for students and those from Article 5 countries under the Montreal Protocol and the seven countries with economies in transition.
Attendees will have access to a comprehensive set of conference papers, live webinars of all presentations and question sessions with authors, recordings of all sessions for six months, key notes giving overviews of policy and global initiatives, and coffee lounge discussion sessions.
