Excellence Conference to Cover Emerging Technologies.
Manufacturers in the HVACR industry are developing new
equipment to meet the demands created by legislation and
utility rebate programs.
With new technologies come new challenges. It is
essential that the people training our current and
future workforce know what technological changes are on
the horizon to keep their programs current and relevant.
HVAC Excellence is pleased to announce that Richard
Benkowski a Sales Engineer for Carrier products and
trainer for the United Association will conduct a train
the trainer session covering emerging technologies at
the HVAC Excellence National HVACR Educators and
Mr. Benkowski will cover a number of topics including
"combined heat and power "(CHP) systems. These systems
offer an efficient approach to generating electric power
and useful thermal energy from a single fuel source.
Instead of purchasing electricity from the distribution
grid and burning fuel in an on-site furnace or boiler to
produce thermal energy, a CHP can provide both energy
services in one very efficient step.
The Federal government wants to increase CHP capacity in
the US by 2020. To accomplish this they are offering
incentives of nearly $80 billion. With incentives this
high, HVACR educators and trainers will need to
incorporate this technology into their programs to meet
the needs of the energy performance contractor. .
the trainer session will cover: CHP systems, ASHRAE
Guideline 32, DOE Home Challenge Program, the EPA Green
Chill program and emerging technologies being developed
to meet the needs of the programs.
The HVAC Excellence conference will offer nearly forty
sessions both lecture and hands on, nearly 90 exhibit
tables to visit and the opportunity to network with
trainers from across North America.
The 2013 conference will be held March 17-20, 2013 at
the South Point Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. All of the
conference details are available by visiting
