AMDEA supports BEIS-led Fridge of the Future event

What will the Large Domestic Appliances of 2050 and beyond look like? What affect will measures to meet Net Zero targets have on the appliances of the future?

Two questions posed by the organisers of 2050: Fridge of the Future, an event which will bring together stakeholders to discuss changes in society, concerns about the environment, and the opportunities offered by new technology.

2050: Fridge of the Future will take place in London and via a live stream on the 16th September and is a collaborative endeavour led by the Office for Product Safety and Standards in partnership with City, University of London, The Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances (AMDEA) and the London Fire Brigade.

It will comprise themed panel sessions intended to stimulate discussions in order to understand what Large Domestic Appliances in the future will likely look like, how this will be shaped by evolving demand, new technologies, environmental considerations, and the impact these might have on product safety.

Discussions will identify key themes for government, industry and other stakeholders to consider in order to improve the safety and environmental impact of domestic appliances and reduce barriers to innovation. 

This in turn, says AMDEA, supports BEIS’s (Department for Business, Energy & Industrial strategy) wider priorities of backing business, unleashing innovation and tackling climate change.
