The future for our home fridges


Future of home fridges


Take a look at this Government and City University report that looks at how domestic fridges in the future will be influenced by social trends, safety issues and environmental demands.

The study focuses primarily on fridges and freezers, the most frequently found appliances in homes (sometimes with more than one per home). According to 2019 data on appliances in the UK appliance ownership, there were 37.65 million cold appliances (fridges, freezers or combined units).

The challenge: How can industry design and make equipment that does what consumers need them to do, are energy efficient, intelligent & work with the energy system and integrated into a “smart home”, are as safe as possible, and on retirement can feed back into a circular economy with maximum recyclability?
