World Refrigeration Day events in Australia

June 26

Woolworths to host a national plantroom open day on the “coolest day of the year”.

The Refrigeration & Air Conditioning (RAC) sector is accountable for almost 25% of Australia’s entire national electricity production and around 12% of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. RAC enables people to live, travel and work comfortably. Refrigeration in particular boosts economic productivity, underpins countless industrial processes, reduces food waste, enables organ transplants and saves lives.

But the RAC industry’s transition towards more sustainable, lower emissions and higher efficiency technologies demands a higher level of skill of the engineers and field technicians who work in this space. This at a time when kids are less likely to choose a trade as their vocation. Like many other trades, the refrigeration industry is facing a dilemma.

World Refrigeration Day (WRD) is an international awareness campaign endorsed by the UN Environment Program (UNEP) to raise the profile of the refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat-pump sector. WRD aims to focus attention on the significant role that the industry plays in modern life and society. It draws attention to engineering and science that is all around us every day.

On WRD this year (June 26th) Woolies will be throwing open the plantroom doors to the public to showcase the latest technology in commercial refrigeration. If you know someone who may just be interested in picking up a trade – or simply interested to learn more
