The program for AIRAH’s Solar Heating and Cooling Workshop 2016 has been released and registrations are now open.
AIRAH stated in their media release that “solar heating and cooling innovations offer a way to reduce our use of greenhouse gases and potentially on future infrastructure spending.”
According to its program, the Workshop will focus on four key areas: industry status, solar manufacturing experience, latest developments and case studies. There will also be Q&A sessions and meal breaks scheduled throughout the day.
Six speakers have been confirmed so far in the program: Marco Calderoni from Polytechnic University of Milan, Simon Witts from Lehr Consultants International, Stuart Elliot from Plant Innovation, Associate Professor Frank Bruno from the University of South Australia, Brendan Bourke from Rheem and Xiaolin (Shannon) Wang from the Australian National University.
Calderoni will be speaking about solar thermal technology trends from a European perspective, Witts will be speaking about Monash University’s 1MW solar thermal field, Bruno will be speaking about phase-change energy storage technology for solar heating and cooling, Bourke will be speaking about solar thermal through a rear-view mirror with a specific focus on solar manufacturing and Wang will be speaking about warm ice technology for cold storage air conditioning.
Jeremy Osborne from EnergyAE, John Barker, Gazinga Abdullar from the University of South Australia and Sergio Pintaldi & Jinyi Guo from CSIRO will also be speaking. There are more speakers to be confirmed.
The Solar Heating and Cooling Workshop 2016 will be held on March 17 at the University of Melbourne, Graduate House.
