HVAC INDUSTRY NEWS
HVAC 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 Trainers Conference.

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. .

This train 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 www.hvacexcellence.org or calling 1-800-394-5268.
