UK: IOR extends the call for abstract deadline for its Annual Conference

Due to unprecedented interest in the IOR Annual Conference “the Journey Towards Net Zero Heating and Cooling – Beyond Refrigeration 2021” taking place online in April 2021, organisers have extended the call for abstract deadline to 29 January 2021 6pm GMT.

Are you involved in market leading innovation or initiatives that will help achieve carbon reductions in the RACHP sector? We would like you to consider sharing your achievements by presenting a paper at this conference. Papers should report on original case studies of application of technology or research-based findings that have a practical implementation and innovative technical developments. They must contain quality research material, scientific or technical information such as quantifiable carbon savings achieved or environmental gains and not have been published previously. Further details on how to submit can be found at 

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 UK Government, businesses in a range of sectors, 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. The full list of themes is available from the IOR web site at
