UK: The Institute of Refrigeration is seeking individuals who could contribute to a new working group looking at the key skills and knowledge required to support the move towards net zero.
The Institute’s Beyond Refrigeration Net Zero initiative identified seven overall issues that the sector needs to address including integrating heating and cooling, using energy intelligently, getting the best out of new technologies and whole system sustainability.
The new working group will be developing a skills specification that could be used by end-users and those working directly in the sector to identify areas of underpinning knowledge, practical skills and key behaviours required to support a move to net zero. The specification could be used as a tool for skills audits, identifying training needs and as a syllabus for future training in design, operation, and management of low carbon cooling.
Those interested in this area and would like to contribute to this work are invited to contact the Institute at [email protected].
