IOR Business Briefing: Exploring the impact of rising temperatures on cooling systems

The Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) will be hosting a one-day event in Birmingham dedicated to addressing the pressing challenges posed by the increasing frequency of extreme heat events, rising ambient temperatures, and the consequential risks to the reliability of RACHP (Refrigeration, Air Conditioning, and Heat Pump) system designs.  There is also a risk that the increased demands for cooling to adapt to rising temperatures could undermine business and national objectives to reduce emissions from cooling as part of the net zero agenda.

In response to growing concerns surrounding climate change and its implications for the cooling sector, the IOR’s International Refrigeration Committee is bringing together this gathering of key international stakeholders to share insights and experiences in addressing the complex challenges arising from more extreme temperature variations.

Join this business briefing to discuss the critical issues facing our industry and explore potential solutions. We will focus on the balance between environmental objectives and the increasingly demanding cooling requirements. Speakers will identify proactive measures that the industry can undertake to plan resilience strategies for the future and offer effective, sustainable solutions for industrial, commercial and residential cooling demands.

Learn from international practices and experiences. By exploring the best practices and innovative solutions employed across the globe, attendees will gain valuable insights into how United Kingdom designers and users will need to adapt practices.

'We recognise the urgency of addressing the implications of rising temperatures on cooling systems,' said Andy Pearson, chair of the IOR’s International Refrigeration Committee. “This event provides a unique opportunity to learn from a collection of international experts, exchange ideas, and collectively contribute to a more sustainable and resilient future for the cooling industry.'

Join us in Birmingham for this event. Your participation can help shape the future of refrigeration and cooling systems in the UK.

The IOR’s International Refrigeration Committee (IRC) was formed to provide UK representation at the International Institute of Refrigeration, an intergovernmental organisation. Members of the IRC appoint representatives to International Commissions on key themes such as Food or Components, and present UK research and development at international events across the globe. Through this work, the IOR helps to forge links with international counterparts, showcasing UK expertise and working collaboratively on global refrigeration issues.
