The President's Message

December 2017

 

Derek Bride

As usual I would like to thank all those who came out to our November meeting. We had both a great Technical and Dinner session. I would like to thank Richard Wentling for doing our Technical Session about changes with refrigerants. I would also like to thank Joel Myerson for educating us on the advances in refrigerant monitoring during the dinner presentation.   

This month we have another great program lined up.The Technical Session and Dinner Session will be presented by Dave Crussel of Honeywell Connected Home. The Tech Session will discuss basics of what makes a connected home. This should be a good session for both professional and personal uses. The dinner session will highlight the different technologies of the connected home. These meetings are very educational as well as a good place to network with your peers. I encourage everyone to invite some of their coworkers that might not have been to an ASHRAE meeting recently.

Lastly, I would like to invite anyone who wants to get involved with the CT ASHRAE Chapter to discuss with any of the Board members about the open Committee Positions. These positions are a great way to get involved and don’t take up a tremendous amount of time. I look forward to seeing everyone at this month’s meeting.

Sincerely, 

Derek Bride

CT ASHRAE President, 2017-2018

Young Engineers in ASHRAE

YEA Update

2017 New Face of Engineering, Alyse Falconer, PE, LEED, AP BD+C

Alyse Falconer’s work directly impacts the energy consumed across the country through her HVAC designs and focuses on energy conservation measures throughout schools, offices, hospitals and labs. Falconer, who currently serves as Senior Mechanical Engineer for Interface Engineering, is heavily involved in volunteer work, including a program called First Graduate, a non-profit in San Francisco, Calif. that helps students finish high school and become the first in their families to graduate from college. “I impact people’s lives by creating the environment they occupy, by reducing energy consumption and carbon footprints of buildings all while being a female role model,” Falconer said in her submission. “I may have helped the students with their education, but they help me reprioritize, destress and understand the impact of giving back.”

Applications for the ASHRAE New Face of Engineering are now being accepted and the online application form is available here.

Contact Blair Richardson, YEA Chair with any questions! YEA@CTASHRAE.org

How many years have you been in the HVACR industry?

35 years

Did or do you have a mentor who has helped shape your career and who you are I business? If so, who?

While I can`t say I have had one mentor, I have been very fortunate to have the support of several individuals over the years beginning with John Matson who hired me to work for him in NYC in 1980 and Bob Bald, the sales engineer I trained under in NYC. I became the Sales Manager of the Philadelphia Carrier office in 1985 and spent several years working for Alex Solowjow who taught me a lot about life and business. Since moving to CT in 1990, I have enjoyed the support and friendship of many coworkers, customers and industry associates. In particular, Greg Mirando and Bill Kavanaugh have been great friends and taught me much of what I know about the nuts and bolts of equipment and control systems.

My passion for cycling involves maintenance and repair of my equipment and participation in many cycling related activities. I lead group rides for two clubs I belong to and I am on the board of directors of one club. My wife and I travel once or twice a year on activve vacations usually involving cycling. Last year we did a tour of Normandy n our tandem that culminated in Paris coincident with the finish of the Tour de France.  In November we are headed to New Zealand for a multi-sport adventure that will give us an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the country.


I also enjoy cross country and downhill skiing. I have always been interested in automobiles and recently purchased a sports car for rides on country roads.

News from ASHRAE

ASHRAE Earns Prestigious UN Environment Award for  Dedication in Advancing Montreal Protocol

ATLANTA (Nov. 27, 2017) – ASHRAE has received the prestigious Partnership Award from the United Nations Environment Programme's (UN Environment) Ozone Secretariat for its extraordinary commitment and contribution to the progress and achievements of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary. The award was presented to ASHRAE at the 2017 Ozone Awards ceremony on Nov. 23 in Montreal. The Partnership Award recognizes the work of civil society and other international organizations that have played a critical role in the development of the Kigali Amendment and/or implementation of the Montreal Protocol. "We could not be more pleased to have earned this recognition. Receiving the Partnership Award is a great honor and acknowledgment of the tireless work ASHRAE and our members are doing to support the phase-out activities of ozone-depleting substances around the world," said 2017-2018 ASHRAE President Bjarne W. Olesen, Ph.D. "We are proud to be a part of this initiative and look forward to continuing our partnership with UN Environment as we work toward a more sustainable built environment." Commonly referred to as "the treaty that saved the ozone layer," the Montreal Protocol, signed in 1987, is an international agreement designed to substantially reduce emissions of substances that deplete the stratospheric ozone layer. The Protocol has led to the phase-out of more than 99 percent of nearly 100 ozone-depleting chemicals and significantly contributed to climate change mitigation, according to UN Environment. "I congratulate ASHRAE for this well-deserved award honoring its exceptional efforts to support the advancement of technologies which help protect the ozone layer. We appreciate the organization's dedication to the Montreal Protocol and its contribution to the success of the treaty," said Tina Birmpili, head of the Ozone Secretariat. ASHRAE's partnership with UN Environment has been highly transparent and visible since it began and has been recognized with appreciation by governments around the world as well as the HVAC&R industry. Through ASHRAE's more than 56,000 members in more than 100 countries, the Society has mobilized its resources to develop, implement and support UN Environment and Montreal Protocol projects. Most recently, ASHRAE and UN Environment launched a work plan titled, "Working Beyond High Global Warning Potential (GWP) Refrigerants." It is the organizations' fifth joint biennial work plan and is another tangible example of ASHRAE's dedication to promote the Montreal Protocol by leading the way in research to identify effective refrigerant alternatives with low GWP.   Another way ASHRAE is leading this charge is through its collaboration with the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Through a $5.2 million joint investment, the three organizations are funding vital research to expedite findings and establish a more robust fact base about the properties and use of flammable refrigerants, which will also help update international standards.
