More than 120 professionals from across the width and breadth of Australia’s refrigeration industry met in Sydney and online from May 16–17 for AIRAH’s Refrigeration Conference to reflect on whether this crucial sector is ready and willing to tackle climate change. The answer was a resounding “yes”.
AIRAH Chief Executive Tony Gleeson, M.AIRAH, opened proceedings by harking back to the challenges that Australia’s refrigeration industry has faced during AIRAH’s 100-year history, “Today HVAC&R engineers are again challenged to embrace innovation in their battle against a seemingly insurmountable foe,” said Gleeson. “This time it’s climate change.
“We all know that our industry is a big user of electricity and emitter of CO2. However, it also continues to innovative, to improve, to become more energy-efficient. If we are to keep the increase in global temperatures to well below 2°C, the work of our industry will be critical.”
