ASHRAE Rises to the Occasion in Albuquerque
April 5, 2010 - ATLANTA?From the soaring Sandia Mountains to peacefully floating hot air balloons, at almost 5,000 feet above sea level, Albuquerque, N.M. is a city of great heights. Since ASHRAE is always striving to reach the highest levels of energy efficiency and sustainability, Albuquerque serves as the perfect site for the 2010 ASHRAE Annual Conference.
?Raising Efficiency to New Levels serves as the Conference theme and echoes ASHRAE?s mission,? Gordon Holness, ASHRAE president, said. ?As leaders in the industry, ASHRAE should continually strive to set high standards for energy efficiency and sustainability. Not only that, but ASHRAE also must lead by example by achieving and exceeding those standards to the highest level.?
With a focus on energy efficiency system design for high elevations and dry climates, this year?s technical program features more market-based papers and programs than in previous technology-driven ASHRAE conferences. In addition, the conference includes traditional full-length Technical Papers as well as a new Conference Paper format. Technical program tracks include: What Is Sustainable Anyway?; Energy Facts vs. Simulation; Ventilation Systems; Refrigeration for the Future; Energy Conservation vs. New Generation; Living with HVAC&R Systems; and High Efficiency HVAC Systems.
The technical program begins Sunday, June 27, and ends Wednesday, June 30, with all sessions at the Albuquerque Convention Center. Complete program details will soon be available at www.ashrae.org/newmexico.
The Albuquerque Virtual Conference also creates exciting new opportunities for attendees?present and remote?to interact with the speakers and other attendees through the posting of questions and comments, viewing comments and viewing the presenters? responses. The Virtual Conference consists of some 250+ presentations of seminars and conference and technical paper sessions.
The ASHRAE Learning Institute offers eight courses, including new full-day seminars on integrated building design and implementing Standard 189.1-2009 and a new half-day seminar introducing the IAQ design guide as a tool for avoiding IAQ problems.
The Conference keynote speaker is Karan Grover of Karan Grover and Associates in India. Grover will share his thoughts on the need to look at a society?s culture and heritage for clues to the direction of contemporary architecture and sustainable development. The Plenary session takes place Saturday, June 26 at the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque.
ASHRAE technical tours offer an inside view of how technology developed by members is practically applied in building environments. Tours at the Annual Conference include the Albuquerque Aquarium and the heating and cooling plants of the University of New Mexico.
Additionally, ASHRAE President-Elect Lynn G. Bellenger, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, a partner at Pathfinder Engineers & Architects, Rochester, N.Y., takes office as 2010-11 president. Bellenger presents her inaugural address at the president?s luncheon on Monday, June 28, focused on modeling a more sustainable world through energy simulation, daylight analysis, CFD and BIM software.
The ASHRAE Annual Conference takes place June 26-30. To register or for more information, visit www.ashrae.org/newmexico. The Hyatt Regency Albuquerque will serve as the headquarters hotel.
ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is an international organization of some 50,000 persons. ASHRAE fulfills its mission of advancing heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration to serve humanity and promote a sustainable world through research, standards writing, publishing and continuing education.

HVACR Instructors Advance Green Concepts
April 6, 2010 - The industry-supported 2010 HVACR & Plumbing Instructor Workshop, held March 24-26 at the National Conference Center in Lansdowne, Virginia, continued a fifteenth straight year of strong attendance, diverse support from the entire HVACR and plumbing industries, and well-received educational and personal growth opportunities.
With an educational and informational focus on "Advancing Green Mechanical Concepts," numerous workshop sessions were offered on defining how educators are adapting to "the way green is changing the way future technicians are trained."
David Boyd from Appion led a session on Green System Evacuation & System Dehydration which highlighted the evolution of increased efficiencies (SEER) and the transition to non-chlorine based refrigerants. ACCA?s Wes Davis presented a workshop session on HVAC System performance testing which discussed the theory involved in measuring HVAC system performance, factors to consider, nationally-recognized standards and approved procedures.
Another ACCA technical specialist, Don Prather, delivered a presentation on HVAC Testing and Balancing where he addressed air testing and balancing and what technicians need to know. Other "green" presentations included The Myths, the Realities and What Techs Need to Know about Net Zero Homes; Integrating Green Building Systems into a Curriculum; The Green in Geothermal Heat Pumps; and Solar Water Heating.
The Opening General Session gave instructors an overview of the changes happening in secondary and postsecondary education. Keynote speaker Tom Applegate of the Association of Career and Technical Education (ACTE) spoke on the challenges in building skills during a challenging and changing economy.
Following Dr. Applegate?s presentation, Bryan Albrecht, President of Gateway Technical College in Kenosha, Wisconsin; Kathy Oliver, Assistant State Superintendent at the Maryland State Department of Education; Paul Hallam, a plumbing apprentice instructor from Indiana and Kevin Couch, the President of CARE led a discussion on the importance of community and technical colleges. Topics included the mismatch between skills and available jobs, the importance of having what is often called "real world" experience as an instructor, motivating students to develop a career path, and what states are doing to support teachers in developing their own skills and measuring the outcomes of student achievement.
Finally, the panel discussed how to access information about federal or state financial resources.
In addition to education and skills enhancement, this workshop also provided ample opportunities for trainers and instructors to network with fellow instructors, industry associations, and manufacturers. More than 40 exhibitors provided attendees with practical information on a variety of topics and technology updates.
Developed from collaborative efforts and support of 11 organizations across the HVACR and plumbing industry spectrum, the HVACR & Plumbing Instructor Workshop continues to be the only event designed specifically by the industry for educators and administrators. The 2010 Workshop was jointly developed and sponsored by ACTE, ACCA, AHRI, CARE, HARDI, HRAI, NATE, NAOHSM, PHCC Educational Foundation, RSES and SkillsUSA.
For more than forty years, the Air Conditioning Contractors of America has served the educational, policy and technical interests of the small businesses that design, install, and maintain indoor environmental systems. ACCA is a non-profit organization with members in all 50 states and over 20 countries. Learn more at www.acca.org.
