The Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) has launched a new podcast channel, The Tip of the Iceberg, to explore with industry leaders some of the critical issues facing the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump sector in the UK.
It will contain news, views and insights from the business and engineering experts driving innovation and change in our sector.
IOR CEO Miriam Rodway said: “The IOR network provides access to so many interesting people and ideas. I’m looking forward to having some in-depth discussions on some challenging topics.”
The first episode was recorded live at the ASHRAE Winter Meeting in Las Vegas this February. The IOR talked with Professor Graeme Maidment and new IOR Trustee Catarina Marques at the largest gathering of refrigeration, air conditioning, heat pump experts in the world. Graeme and Cat shared what it's like to be back at international events, what they learned there about motivation and collaboration, and why international problems like reducing the carbon impact of buildings, improving diversity, and addressing covid safety, will need international solutions and new ways of working.
Future episodes of the podcast will cover topics including Net Zero Supermarkets, Reinventing Refrigeration for the Heat Pump Market and the Changing Role of the Engineer.
The IOR wants to hear what other topics and people members would like featured and asks them to listen, like, share and comment on the podcast website.
