Arbon to speak at the IoR Annual Conference

Sustainable environment specialist Ian Arbon has been announced as a keynote speaker for the IOR Annual Conference – the Journey to Net Zero Heating and Cooling – Beyond Refrigeration 2021 which will take place on 21 and 22 April 2021.

Mr Arbon’s presentation will be based on The Energy Hierarchy which provides a refreshing approach to tackling the challenge of net zero by putting energy demand reduction at the top of the list of things to consider when developing a plan for a future sustainable energy policy for the future. It highlights the need to challenge why we need to use the energy in the first place and how we can reduce or even eliminate demand.

Mr Arbon is a Fellow of IMechE - as a Founder and past Chair of its Energy, Environment & Sustainability Group, he has a long history in spearheading the Institution’s work in sustainable development. He currently runs Engineered Solutions, a Sustainable Engineering and Management consultancy. 

The event will be online and feature a programme packed with papers that demonstrate how the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump sector is responding to the challenge of net zero heating and cooling.

Attendees to the conference will be able to sample keynote papers from experts in the field of environmental policy development and global heating and cooling initiatives, and workshops on leakage reduction and low GWP refrigerant options. The themes covered during the two days will include Combining/Balancing Heating and Cooling Demand, Using Energy Intelligently, Making use of Best Available Technology, Reducing the Need for Mechanical Cooling, Achieving Best System Performance, Developing the Best People and Skills and Working Together.
