IOR releases the programme for its Annual Conference

The Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) has just released the programme* for its Annual Conference taking place online on 21 and 22 April 2021.

Delegates to “The Journey to Net Zero Heating and Cooling - Beyond Refrigeration 2021” will be able to enjoy a varied programme featuring case studies that demonstrate how the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump sector is responding to the challenge of net zero heating and cooling. The event will include keynotes from Ian Arbon on how energy consumption can be reduced, UNEP will explore why it is necessary to move to Net Zero and Didier Coulomb, Director General of the IIR who will offer a global perspective of the sustainability goals for the refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat pump sector. The event will also include a variety of workshops and short courses.

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 but also to publish a set of technical case study papers that will show technical and nontechnical businesses how they can move from current business as usual practices to a more sustainable way of operation, measuring their progress towards net zero. The event will be used as a platform to support the UK Government, businesses in a range of sectors and individuals in relevant occupations to achieve national and international environmental objectives while also developing a road map for non-technical specialist business owners.  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.

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. Fees start at £50 + VAT per person with discounted fees available for students.
