The TICR Talks
These are a series of 45 minute interactive events led by sector experts where we will discuss some of the initial findings of research and site investigations of a DESNZ-funded investigation into real energy use and greenhouse gas emissions from various sectors that use refrigeration for cooling processes, including datacentres, refrigerated transport, industrial pharmaceutical and food manufacture and commercial supermarket applications. The project will be creating a comprehensive data-driven and whole systems approach to support national decarbonisation strategy and policy in the UK. You can contribute to this work and share your experience of refrigeration systems in these interactive events.
