Webinar reviews advances in heating and cooling

UK: Recent advances in heating and cooling will be the subject of an Institute of Refrigeration SIRACH Network webinar on June 9.

The first presentation by George Atkinson of the University of Warwick will focus on heat pump research and next-generation ammonia heat pump cycles. It will look at the problem facing domestic heating and how ammonia sorption cycles, which are used in gas‑fired heat pumps, can offer a partial solution in the decarbonisation of domestic heating.

Sustainability will be at the heart of the second and third presentation as well. Henrique Lagoeiro of the London South Bank University will be presenting the Bunhill Heat Network, a pioneering system that recovers waste heat from ventilation air from the London Underground and uses it to supply a heat network for heating buildings in the London Borough of Islington. 

Matt Wegner, also from London South Bank University, will be discussing the benefits of cooling with heat recovery for electrical cable tunnels and data centres with a study investigating the effect and impact of heat recovery on cable tunnels.
